THIS month's concert on Sunday at Milestones Jazz Club at Lowestoft's Hotel Hatfield features a sextet of East Anglia's finest jazz musicians playing music from the golden age of modern jazz.

The hard-swinging Rebop make their Milestones debut performing the ground-breaking music of, among others, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Art Blakey and Wayne Shorter, exploring the bebop and hard bop styles that emerged during the years 1945-1965, the golden age of modern jazz.

The band was formed 10 years ago by pianist Chris Ingham as a faithful homage to the seminal Charlie Parker-Dizzy Gillespie Quintet of the 1940s.

Since then, Rebop, which are described as a “jazz repertory group”, have expanded to playing the music of Miles Davis from the Kind Of Blue era and the wider hard bop movement that included the funky, blues-driven styles of Art Blakey, Horace Silver and Wayne Shorter.

The collective CV of Rebop’s members is extensive, with 
all having toured and recorded in the UK, Europe and the 

Rebop’s full line-up features Colin Watling (tenor sax), Kevin Flanagan (alto sax), Paul Higgs (trumpet), Chris Ingham (piano), Ivars Galenieks (double bass) and Russell Morgan (drums).

All Milestones gigs are held on the first Sunday of every month and take place at Hotel Hatfield, Esplanade, Lowestoft, with the doors opening at 8pm. Admission £7/£6 (concession).

Milestones Jazz Club takes place in a basement room. If you have a disability please contact or 01502) 568684 for help.
