The Dime Notes

The Dime Notes appearing at this event

Blues-drenched sounds of clarinet-driven 1920’s New Orleans jazz with London's hard-swinging vintage jazz band, unearthing a repertoire of hot swinging jazz, stomps, blueses, and forgotten gems of the era by musicians such as Jelly Roll Morton and James P Johnson. Fronted by Chris Barber’s long-time clarinetist David Horniblow, an established figure on the European jazz stage and American pianist/composer/musicologist and Jelly Roll Morton specialist Andrew Oliver, a recent arrival to the UK, 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 Tom Wheatley, 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 emphasise the propulsive grooves and sultry melodies which made early jazz revolutionary, controversial, and wildly popular. "Inspired!" Sunday Times (UK) "lovingly curated examples of great music from the ancestral repertoire of jazz" Jazz Da Gama (US) "swings from start to finish" Just Jazz (UK)
