Clark Tracey, a well-established jazz master, recognised as a most inventive jazz drummer, composer, educator and bandleader, having appeared over forty years in the company of some of the world’s jazz greats, presents his new quintet, providing a platform for our most outstanding young musicians.

A Five-Time Winner of “Best Drummer” in the British Jazz Awards, Clark Tracey has built a reputation since the early ‘80s as a talent spotter of future stars of the British jazz scene; Guy Barker, Alex Ridout, Daniel Casimir, Zoe Rahman and Mark Armstrong, to name just a few. Clark was awarded the British Empire Medal (BEM) in the 2019 Birthday Honours for services to music and the promotion of jazz.

Clark Tracey has put together a stellar line up of established and well-respected musicians from the UK jazz scene.  The material will be largely in tribute to Clark’s legendary father, Stan Tracey’s compositions. Themen and Allen were both front men for Stan for many years, while Clark’s association with Newton and Dankworth spans 40 years.  This date is part of a 24-date tour curated by Clark and has been experiencing sell out houses and stand out reviews.

Duration: 2 hours (incl 30-minute interval)
