Martin Taylor Alan Barnes

with multi award winning alto/baritone sax and clarinet man
Alan Barnes
provide an intimate duet setting.

Martin is, of course, known for his long association with Stephane Grappelli. His highly successful solo career includes the Last Train to Hauteville CD, which starred Alan Barnes as part of his Spirit of Django group.

Alan is simply one of Britain's number one mainstream reeds' player. In Last Train to Hauteville, Alan concentrates solely on clarinet. However, the duo's repertoire is wide ranging and unusual, complimented by two catchy and accessible originals from the pen of each player.

The two highly acclaimed musicians bring out the best in each other with some beautifully relaxed playing. The wonderful ambience of the Wiltshire Jazz Festival will certainly provide a fitting backdrop to their creative interpretations.
