The 2018 programme of concerts at Milestones Jazz Club in Lowestoft begin this Sunday (January 7) with hard bop from The Simon Youngman Quintet.
The club’s 22nd year will start with a bang as the well-known Simon Youngman – a fine alto-saxophonist and founder of The Mingus Project and other contemporary jazz groups – will entertain.
Simon is joined in the quintet by some of the area’s finest players including tenor saxophonist and Milestones Jazz Club co-founder Dave Ingham.
The band’s repertoire of hard-swinging hard bop includes a range of compositions by top names, with the full line-up featuring Simon Youngman (alto/soprano sax), Dave Ingham (tenor sax), Tom Harris (piano), Vilem Hais (double bass) and Cath Evans (drums).
All Milestones gigs are held on the first Sunday of every month at the Hotel Hatfield in Lowestoft with the doors opening at 8pm. Admission costs £7/£6 (concessions).
