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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
