William Ellis is one of the world's leading jazz photographers and also an informative and highly entertaining speaker who has given talks on his work internationally. In this show, as his photographs are screened, William gives us the story behind each shot, and saxophonist Alan Barnes leads an all-star band performing a piece by each selected musician.
Saxophonists Wayne Shorter
, Sonny Rollins
and Illinois Jaquet
will be spotlighted, and the inclusion of trumpeters Dizzy Gillespie
, Miles Davis
and Clark Terry
make the presence of the mighty Bruce Adams
essential. The David Newton
trio will swing as intensely as usual with works by Herbie Hancock
and Horace Silver
. Sprinkle in some Charles Mingus
and this will be a brilliant insight into the players behind some of the greatest jazz ever heard.
