Curated by Siggi Loch

A tribute to Blue Note founders Alfred Lion & Francis Wolff.

One of the most influential jazz labels in music history, Blue Note, celebrates its 80th birthday this year – reason enough for Siggi Loch, founder of the jazz label ACT, to curate a unique band that will follow in the footsteps of its founders, Alfred Lion & Francis Wolff.

With a sensational guest appearance by the icon of hard bop Benny Golson, and Axel Zwingenberger’s time-travel bringing a Boogie touch to the show, the dynamic all-star band with energetic saxophonist Émile Parisien, award-winning trumpeter Theo Croker, multifaceted trombonist Glenn Harris, virtuosic pianist Yaron Herman, versatile bassist Joe Martin and master drummer Gerald Cleaver celebrate the momentous repertoire of Blue Note.

Please note: Under 14s to be accompanied by an adult; no Under 5s.
