Alan Barnes Quartet

The classic art of improvising on the tunes of the great American songbook, and a few jazz “standards” is becoming a rarity. It requires musicians with encyclopaedic musical knowledge, great harmonic understanding, a love of melodies, and virtuosity on their instrument. Multi-instrumentalist, Alan Barnes, stands at the top of the queue delivering classic jazz and his warm rapport with audiences guarantees great concerts.
