NEWS: "56 gigs, 14 young support bands, 15 workshops." Nigel Price announces tour (Aug-Dec)

Guitarist Nigel Price


Sebastian writes:

The most dynamic, entrepreneurial and resilient of the UK's jazz musician-promoters, guitarist NIGEL PRICE has just announced the most extensive and ambitious venture that he has organized to date, a fifty-six date trio/quartet tour of the UK, involving fourteen support bands and fifteen workshops, starting in late August and concluding just before Christmas, by which point (see review of the thirtieth date of a previous tour), the band will have gelled, and cohered to a point which is now seen far to rarely in jazz.

Nigel Price's regular trio consists of Ross Stanley on Hammond Organ and Matt Home on drums, and in quartet format has a choice of either Alex Garnett or Vasilis Xenopoulos on saxophone. Nigel Price wrote on Facebook: "Steve Brown, Dean Masser and Brandon Allen are all involved. There will be other special guests too."

Nigel Price's tour acknowledges substantial support from Arts Council England
