Alan Barnes and Andy Panayi Sextet - Salute to Cannonball and Coltrane
Alan Barnes has been at the forefront of British jazz since 1980 and his musicianship and sense of humour have made him hugely popular in jazz clubs and festivals across the UK and beyond. He is best known for his work on clarinet, alto and baritone saxes.
Andy Panayi is an exceptionally gifted musician, skilled in performance, composition and arranging. He plays all the flutes and all the saxophones and currently leads his own groups, both jazz and classical.
They first played together more than three decades ago, and since then have both gone on to be multi-award winners. This sextet plays post-bop tunes from a golden era of jazz, including some from the 1959 album 'The Cannonball Adderley Quintet in Chicago', re-released in 1964 as 'Cannonball and Coltrane' and John Coltrane's album 'Blue Train' from 1957.
