SAM WATTS – PIANO
DAVID HORNIBLOW – CLARINET
DAVE KELBIE – GUITAR
LOUIS THOMAS – DOUBLE BASS
London’s hard-swinging vintage jazz band.
Rescheduled from earlier dates.
The Dime Notes dig back into the blues-drenched sounds of clarinet-driven 1920’s New Orleans jazz. They unearth a repertoire of stomps and blueses of the era from musicians such as Jelly Roll Morton and Johnny Dodds.
Fronted by Chris Barber’s long-time clarinetist David Horniblow, an established figure on the European jazz stage, and eclectic British pianist Sam Watts. The band is anchored by the unstoppable pulse of London’s knockout rhythm section, guitarist Dave Kelbie, accompanist in Evan Christopher’s Django a la Creole, John Etheridge’s Sweet Chorus and bassist Louis Thomas, 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.
