TOMMY SMITH & BRIAN KELLOCK + SUPPORT
Sat 12 March 2016, 14:30 – 17:00 GMT
Tommy Smith (saxophone) Brian Kellock (piano)
Two of Scotland’s greatest Jazz artists, saxophonist Tommy Smith and pianist Brian Kellock, team up to bring you a beautiful and imaginative duo.
Tommy Smith is one of the finest saxophonists of his generation wining countless accolades including three British Jazz Awards (1989, 1996 & 2002).
Brian Kellock is widely regarded as one of the UK’s finest jazz pianists. Stylistically, he aligns himself with iconic figures such as Oscar Peterson or Monty Alexander, but he is a player who is equally at home in mainstream and contemporary jazz styles.
The pair will perform a variety of up tempo classics and sublime ballads from the great American & European songbook, including standards by Duke Ellington, Chick Corea and Stan Getz.
“…Music lovers of all persuasions will recognise its consummate class” The Guardian
“Conversational spontaneity and sheer virtuosity of their playing are what make Smith and Kellock such a mighty team.” Herald
