JAZZ AT THE PRINCE of WALES
THURSDAY 8th November
High St, Shrivenham
The now thriving jazz scene at the Prince of Wales Shrivenham continues
triumphantly this week with the fabulous Ben Holder Trio. Ben is a gifted
and electrifying 22 year old violinist/vocalist. He started to learn classical
violin at the early age of 6, switching to jazz in later years after turning on
to records by French and Belgian jazz maestros Grappelli and Reinhardt.
Fiery and multifaceted, he can confidently and effortlessly switch from
virtuoso violin to vocals on a wide selection of standard jazz tunes. Jez
Cook, a hugely skilful guitarist, plays with passion and flair, making him
an admirable foil for Ben. Bassist Paul Jefferies, a wonderfully swinging
and creative musician, completes the trio.
Expect an entertaining evening's jazz music.
