Alex Clarke Hot Five

For the second time in a month we’ll be welcoming a band of young, well, comparatively young, musicians to the club. Alex Clarke comes with a huge recommendation and she will lead a five piece group with a strong New Orleans sound. An amazingly versatile reed player, Alex plays, clarinet, tenor sax and flute in a variety of styles but frequent visitor Mike Owen on trombone will keep her in the New Orleans style. The other members of the Hot five are all well known to our members; that superb pianist Tom Kincaid, the driving Jim Swinnerton on bass and the well established New Orleans drummer Jack Cotterill all promise to make this a great evening.
