Wednesday sees a new pairing of front line guests when guitarist Derrick Harris is joined by trumpeter Mark Chandler.
Welsh born Derrick is always a popular visitor to Scarborough having been associated with the town through his tenure with The Geoff Laycock Orchestra. Since training at Leeds College of Music (LCM) Derrick has become a bandleader, composer and arranger with many t.v. And radio credits to his name. He has also worked on over twenty West End theatre and national tours including Grease, Chicago and West Side Story.
Mark Chandler makes a welcome return to Scarborough Jazz, having been too busy to visit us in recent years. For many years he was based in London and was a first call session player and a member of the renowned Syd Lawrence Orchestra. Now based in the North, Mark is a senior lecturer at LCM and still a very busy player. His credits include work with Marvin Hamlish, Shirley Bassey, Harry Connick Jnr. and Barbara Streisand.
Backing will be provided by Tom Townsend (drums) and Bob Walker (bass).
