LINEUP: Ashley John Long (vibraphone), Glen Manby (Aato sax), Rod Paton (french horn), Pete Komor (bass)
Outstanding Wales based musicians – Ashley John Long, and Glen Manby lead this session at the Brecon Muse from 3.15 pm, surprise guests may arrive.
Sunday at Brecon Jazz has two evening headlines as well as a double bill ‘Jazz in the afternoon’ concerts at the Muse to help everyone relax and have a wonderful weekend, with lovely food available throughout at the Muse Arts venue :
Jazz is constantly throwing up new genres and forms, but hard bop continues to outlive them all. Perhaps because it is technically demanding, it seems to attract more than its fair share of talented musicians too. Alto saxophonist Glen Manby is a case in point. Fully at home in the idiom, with a polished technique and mature tone, he’s an eloquent player. Expect Manby originals, plus pieces by Wayne Shorter, Quincy Jones et al.
Ashley-John Long has emerged as one of the most unique and virtuosic double bassists in the U.K working in diverse range of idioms and with a passionate commitment to new music, but equally at home on vibraphone.
