Event Details

Robert Fowler

 

"Robert's primary instrument is the tenor, which he plays with the swagger and swing of a latterday Al Cohn." Jazz Journal

 

Robert has played with many reputable artists, including Bryan Ferry, Madeleine Bell, Lilian Boutte, Steve Winwood and Mitch Winehouse, and in London and Paris with Canadian singer, Rufus Wainwright.

 

You can hear Robert's solo clarinet on the soundtrack of Guy Ritchie's film Snatch and his clarinet playing can be heard on Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. He also contributed to the soundtrack of Baz Luhrman's Great Gatsby.

 

Fowler is a rarity amongst the younger generation of British players in that he honed his instrumental skills in very much the classic way, as a member for ten years of The Pasadena Roof Orchestra. This band is recognised as probably the leading exponent of dance band era music, having toured the world, recorded 19 albums and appeared on television and radio numerous times in Britain and Europe.

 

Robert followed his time with the PRO with stints with Chris Dean’s Syd Lawrence Orchestra (re-creating the music of Glenn Miller), appearances with the BBC Big Band and Humphrey Lyttelton’s band, and two years touring with Bryan Ferry’s Roxy Music. Having well and truly paid his dues, Robert is now pursuing a solo career, having released his first CD at the end of 2004, although he continues his various assignments under other band leaders too.

 

Robert’s playing draws on various influences mainly from the 40s and 50s, but the result is always swinging, tasteful jazz.

 

To quote Dave Gelly in The Observer: “The first thing anyone notices about his tenor saxophone playing is the tone. It's broad, warm and juicy, a perfect fit for his calm, measured phrasing.”

 

with Bob Haddrell: organ • Jeremy Shoham: sax • Rick Finlay: drums

FAQs 
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There is on-street parking in the roads round the pub.
Colindale underground station (Northern Line) is a short walk away. 

Can I pay on the night?
Yes, for those who haven't pre-booked there is a collection at the interval (although you won't be entitled to the discount on meals). We do expect you to contribute the normal admission fee unless you qualify for a concessionary rate.

Are there any concessions?
There is a lower ticket price for students in full-time education. Students and unwaged can also turn up on the night and pay whatever you like (or even nothing). We want you to be able to enjoy the music, and maybe you'll come back and pay the full admission in better times…

Accessibility
Deaf and disabled people can apply for an extra ticket, free of charge, if they would be unable to attend a gig or outdoor event without the active support of another person.
We encourage our audience to book online (we are too small to have a full-time box office) but if you have any difficulties booking on Eventbrite just call us on 020 8361 0265.

The Chandos Arms welcomes assistance dogs (or indeed all friendly dogs) on leads
