ADRIAN COX PRESENTS 'PROFOUNDLY BLUE'
A highly-acclaimed concert celebrating the traditional hot jazz music of Louisiana-born clarinettist Edmond Hall. The show features leading UK clarinet star Adrian Cox with his first-class band; Joe Webb (piano), Simon Read (double bass) and Gethin Jones (drums).
The title Profoundly Blue comes from the 1941 hit album which featured Hall, along with Meade Lux Lewis and Charlie Christian. Cox leads the quartet with this as a starting point and continues through a programme of lesser known tunes from the albums Rumpus on Rampart Street and Petit Fleur. Together they bring to life a fine selection of Hall’s work with Eddie Condon, Teddy Wilson and of course, Louis Armstrong, in this fantastic tribute to one of the true legends of jazz.
