WHAT'S ON

Adrian Cox Trio

Wed 18th Oct

Led by Adrian Cox on Clarinet and Saxophone, the Adrian Cox Trio play a mix of jazz and swing celebrating the great small band era. Adrian is inspired by greats such as Jonny Hodges, Ed Hall, Barney Bigard, Earl Bostic who all broke away at one time or another to explore the sounds of smaller line ups. One of these was the side by side and back to back sessions that came from Jonny Hodges and longtime band leader Duke Ellington.

Adrian draws a mix of influences into his playing all of which resound as the quartet fire through a programme of jazz and swing standards that are sometimes forgotten.
