Preview: Tonite - Supersax!

Ronnie Scott's is the place to be tonight (Thursday). If only! The live stream option is the next best thing and whatever you do don't miss the eight o'clock start. The London Supersax Project is a 'who's-who' of the British jazz scene. Lead alto sax Alex Garnett (pictured playing tenor), will be joined by fellow alto saxophonist Sammy Mayne, the two tenors of Tom Barford and Brandon AllenSteve Fishwick, trumpet, with hard bop tenor sax man Leo Richardson anchoring the frontline on baritone sax! The rhythm section, led by Ronnie's MD, pianist James Pearson (Conor Chaplin, bass, Matt Skelton, drums) will be taking care of business as the horns out front lock horns. And to think that across town the Kansas Smitty's crew will be doing their thing at the same time!
