Bandleader and alto saxophonist, Duncan Anselm, recreates the Blue Note era with swinging American standards, alongside his own compositions. This is up-tempo cool jazz with lively solos at their best. For this special show, they’ll be joined by special guest, Nigel Price, one of the most gifted guitarists playing on the UK jazz scene. It promises to be a suitable finale to Jazz Jurassica’s second season.
Duncan’s band plays hard grooving tunes penned by the likes of Hank Mobley, Thelonious Monk and Sonny Clark.
Award winning jazz guitarist Nigel Price started his career in his early 20s, touring with various reggae and funk bands before settling on a solo guitar career and turning his attention to jazz. Citing early influences as Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Nigel honed his craft by attending gigs and sitting in with the players of the time.
He spent ten years with acid jazz outfit The Filthy Six, was a member of James Taylor’s band for 3 years and performed with David Axelrod.
He has picked up a Parliamentary Jazz Award (Best Jazz Ensemble, 2010), a nomination for a British Jazz Award (Best Guitarist, 2014) and a British Jazz Award (Best Guitarist, 2016) along the way.
Nigel is a regular performer at London’s Ronnie Scott’s.
