Saturday 27 May @ 7:30pm - St Luke's Church
The Dime Notes
London's most stylish vintage jazz band plays the irresistible, foot-tapping early jazz of the 1920s, digging back into the blues-drenched sounds of clarinet-driven New Orleans jazz, unearthing a repertoire of stomps, blues, and forgotten gems of the era from musicians such as Johnny Dodds, Jelly Roll Morton and Red Nichols.
Fronted by Chris Barber’s long-time clarinettist David Horniblow, an established figure on the European jazz stage and American pianist/composer/musicologist and Jelly Roll Morton specialist Andrew Oliver, a recent arrival to the UK, the band is anchored by the unstoppable pulse of the UK’s finest rhythm guitarist Dave Kelbie, accompanist in Evan Christopher’s Django a la Creole, John Etheridge’s Sweet Chorus and many more.
The bass chair is occupied by London bassist Tom Wheatley, well-known across the international scene for his swing and versatility and in demand across many genre boundaries with his huge sound and stylistic versatility.
The Dime Notes present a fresh take on a timeless style, emphasising the propulsive grooves and sultry melodies which made early jazz revolutionary, controversial, and wildly popular.
