De Jong’s Cleynderts 23 MarchGill Wilde writes
On Wednesday 23rd March 2016 Grimsby Jazz has an amazing line up of international top line artists in the quartet “De Jong’s Cleynderts”. Andy has assembled a group of outstanding talent; a combination of star soloists that can also provide harmonious ensemble work. A huge success at last year’s Cleethorpes Jazz Festival, it is a second chance to enjoy the music of Andrew Cleyndert bass, Martin Shaw trumpet, Dave Newton piano, Colin Oxley guitar.
This band eschews the drums in favour of the flexible trio of piano, bass and guitar and has added the lyrical trumpet of Martin Shaw. With the three instruments on a more equal footing, and a generally cooler dynamic range, every note and phrase stands out clearly. Newton, who spent 10 years as Stacey Kent's pianist, has a deliciously crystalline touch, well matched by Oxley's mellow guitar. Cleyndert is not only a masterly rhythm bassist; he produces a wonderfully rich cello-like tone with the bow.
At the Old Clee Club, Clee Crescent, Grimsby, DN32 8LS. Tickets £12 in adv £14 on the door, Students half price. Doors open 7.30 pm music starts 8.30 pm. Tel: 01472 873730 / firstname.lastname@example.org Off the Beaten Tracks 36 Aswell Street, Louth. www.grimsbyjazz.com
