Where to begin with a summary of Alan’s illustrious career and amazing qualities, which are worthy of a book? The list of international artists with whom he has performed, recorded and broadcast reads like a ‘Who’s Who’ of contemporary music and includes Georgie Fame, John Mayall, Elvin Jones, Eric Clapton, Clark Terry, Stan Tracey, Van Morrison, Charlie Watts, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, Weather Report, and Dexter Gordon. Dynamic and inventive Alan’s soloing on up tempo numbers is a tour de force and his treatment of ballads is nothing short of outstanding.  His welcome return to Googlies offers a chance for you to catch a true legend of British jazz. alanskidmore.info Entrance £7, non members £10

Thursday December 21, 8pm, Karen Lane Vocals

Start the Christmas season early with a visit to listen to this truly charming vocalist. Karen’s repertoire is extensive, her voice is melodic and soulful and her rhythmic qualities are equally at home whether swinging (like the proverbial clappers), grooving funkily or interpreting Latin American flavoured music in a manner that sets feet tapping and shoulders swaying.  karenlanejazz.com  Entrance £7, non members £10
