Jazz duo play tribute to legends


Jazz fans are in for a trumpeting treat at The Castle in Wellingborough tonight when Ben Cummings and David Horniblow present tribute to two legendary jazz acts.

The pair will be playing music by Ben Webster and Harry ‘Sweets’ Edison.

Cummings (pictured) is a formidable player on the UK jazz scene and is one of the most versatile and sought-after trumpeters today.

He has played and recorded at the highest level in every genre, from New Orleans, vintage, swing and modern jazz, to funk, soul, pop and salsa.

His rich, warm tone coupled with dazzling technical ability and harmonic awareness make him one of the hottest players around.

Alongside performances on TV and radio he has shared the stage with a wide variety of acts, including Jamie Cullum, Imelda May, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Gary Kemp and Pete Doherty.

Clarinet and sax star Horniblow boasts a similarly impressive CV and had made music with, and performed with, the likes of Chris Barber, Kenny Ball, Jools Holland and the late Acker Bilk.

He has also toured extensively in the UK and Europe and with legendary The Big Chris Barber Band.

Doors open at 8pm and tickets cost £12.50.
