EVAN CLEGG & ALBAN CLARET PRESENT "THE COLLECTION"
Thursday 14th April 2022
Tickets: £20.00 Seat at a shared Table for 4 /£15.00 Seat – No Table
The Hampstead Jazz Club presents this outstanding quintet, led by trumpeter Evan Clegg and guitarist Alban Claret paying homage to some of the great jazz icons, in creating this new album of works “The Collection.”
“The Collection” comprises of a quintet co-led by the French guitarist Alban Claret and the Yorkshire born trumpeter Evan Clegg. These London based musicians joined forces to record a ‘collection’ of compositions inspired by the works of some of their primary influences, notably saxophonist Charlie Parker, trumpeter Miles Davis and pianist Lennie Tristano.
A shared love of bebop and composition discovered at a fortuitous meeting at the Tate Britain, set the two on a path leading to the May 2021 release of their debut album The Collection. Their original material rooted firmly within the jazz tradition, powerful delivery of snappy tunes and confident improvisational passages offer a compelling yet accessible listening experience.
