John Critchinson: "Ronnie Remembered"
John, Mornington, Dick Ronnie Scott

This band's memories of Ronnie are sure be a season opener to be remembered


John Critchinson piano, Mornington Lockett sax, Dick Pearce trumpet, Tim Wells bass, Trevor Tomkins drums


Ronnie Scott was a giant, and five very tall people, four of whom played with him. are here to celebrate his work.
The gig is led by John Critchinson, who worked closely with Ronnie. Critch has played for us many times, and is a great Fleece favourite. He is joined by Ronnie's close colleages Mornington Lockett and Dick Pearce.


Trevor Tomkins and Tim Wells complete and complement tnis fine quintet.


Mornington is "Abrasive and roaring one moment, then cutting suddenly to a gentle caress - exciting stuff " - The Venue

"Sounds like Hendrix on sax " - Noel Gallagher

Big Screen Trio
Tom, Dave and Matt

Matt has a unique connection with film music by virtue of his tenure with the incredible John Wilson orchestra


Matt Skelton drums, David Newton piano, Tom Farmer bass

If you need a fine drummer, call on Matt. We last heard him at our Wolsey Theatre gig with Clare Teal, and are delighted to see him any time with any band. His own
trio displays a love of film music rendered as proper jazz.It must have been fun playing with John Wilson at the Royal Albert Hall.


Our president, David, is one of the finest and most sought after pianists in the business, and Tom's reputation is similarly high.


From Linn Recordings, of David: "one of our nations treasured pianists: the man has a lovely touch.

And of Tom: " He swings. Highest-possible praise again, particularly when it comes to the bass. Okay, he possesses excellent intonation, too. "
