John Horler

Top British Jazz Pianist Comes to Steyning

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

A pianist with a formidable reputation is coming to Steyning Jazz Club on Friday, March 7. John Horler will be joined by Trevor Tomkins on drums and Jim Wells on string bass for the concert at the Steyning Centre.

Colin Jilks from the club said: “John is one of the finest jazz pianists that Britain has ever produced, an enormously respected musician strongly influenced by Bill Evans.

“He has earned a formidable reputation on the British Jazz scene, playing with Pete King, Tommy Whittle, Tony Coe, Danny Moss, Alan Barnes and The John Dankworth Big Band. He was first choice pianist with Sir John Dankworth and Dame Cleo Laine for many years.”

The John Horler Trio is John’s preference for intimate settings, reminiscent of his earlier trio work with bassist Jeff Clyne.

Mr Jilks added: “John’s playing delivers melodic modern jazz, with classical influences, in a style that is unreservedly exquisite and inspired. A great evening is assured.”

Doors open at 7.45pm for an 8.30pm start. Telephone Denis Cummings on 01903 814017 for more information.

I am unfortunately a widower having lost the Light of my life, my Very Dear Wife to cancer after a 30 year wonderful marriage and four now grown and flown children. So I can have the sounds UP as high as I like! No near neighbours, so no worries out here in beautiful South Wales. Oh yes, why oh why do we have a Mono DAB signal here and not Stereo?
