Alan Barnes is as wonderfully exciting a performer on both alto & baritone saxophones, not to mention clarinet (on which he is also a true master), as you could hope to see. He possesses a superb command of his instruments, which is employed to ultimate effect in the creation of jazz of the very highest quality. Alan’s versatility and technical brilliance enable him to move through a varied repertoire that often incorporates the musical styles and compositions of those such as Charlie Parker and Gerry Mulligan as well as compositions of his own. Alan has an outrageously engaging sense of humour that shines through his music and punctuates the enlightening and entertaining verbal gems to which he treats his audience. A true great of British Jazz, Alan in 2018, won three British Jazz Awards in the Alto Sax, Clarinet and New Album Categories. The new album is ‘Ask Me Now’ which he recorded with pianist Dave Newton.
