Simon Allen – Saxophones

September 19 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Entrance £8, non-members £11 – 50% reduction for students

Simon studied saxophone at the Royal Academy, after beginning his career with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra and the Pendulum Jazz Orchestra, performing alongside the likes of jazz stars Art Themen, Gerard Presencer and Peter King.  Subsequently Simon was an integral member of both the Stan Tracey Quintet and the Clark Tracey Quintet.  Recently Simon has been featuring in some outstanding bands of his own with which he has toured internationally.  At the time of his first visit Simon was one of our youngest guests and he immediately established himself as a firm favourite with the audience and Googlies Quartet.  His enthusiasm for playing allied to a great technique and marvellous improvisational skills, enable Simon to produce jazz of the highest quality – ‘He knows how to produce a luminous, floating tone on alto sax, has an impressive technique, and constructs his solos with maturity and confidence’ – Sholto Byrnes, The Independent.
