NJ Advent Calendar - Video: Alan Barnes (December 17th)
A celebration of Jazz in the North wouldn't be complete without a nod to one of its most well known exponents, Alan Barnes. As his bio says
Alan Barnes’s unique musicianship, indefatigable touring, and warm rapport with audiences have made him uniquely popular in British jazz. He has received over 25 British Jazz Awards, most recently in 2014 for clarinet, and has twice been made BBC Jazz Musician of the Year.
See him in action in this video, recorded at Seven Arts in Leeds with Bruce Adams on trumpet.
