8 October (evening): The Ben Crosland Jazz Quintet

We welcome the Ben Crosland Quintet, covering the Ray Davies songbook.

Noted jazz critic Dave Gelly, writing in The Observer, said: “Ray Davies’ tunes – evocative, catchy and deceptively simple – serve his lyrics so well it is easy to take them for granted. By recasting them in the jazz idiom and delicately elaborating their harmonies, bassist and composer Ben Crosland brings them out in a fresh hue.”
