Price is right for Milestones

PUBLISHED: 12:50 05 November 2010

A TOP jazz guitarist will make a welcome return to Lowestoft on Sunday at the Milestones Jazz Club.

The next concert features the return of a band that captures the energetic spirit and gritty Hammond organ format of the 1960s Blue Note style – The Nigel Price Organ Trio.

When Price last performed at Milestones Jazz Club he recorded his new album, appropriately entitled Live!.

Five of the CD’s eight tracks were recorded at Milestones and has already received rave reviews in the national press and jazz music publications with the London Evening Standard making it their ‘CD of the Week’.

For Sunday’s concert, Nigel will once again lead his funky and hard-swinging band in the spirit of Wes Montgomery, Grant Green, Jimmy Smith and Jack McDuff through fiery originals and well-chosen standards.

Since the late Humphrey Lyttelton called Nigel ‘a really class performer’ it is not surprising that he has fast become one of the UK’s leading jazz musicians, often performing at Ronnie Scott’s Club and working with the likes of Pee Wee Ellis, Bobby Wellins, Alan Barnes, Peter King and the legendary David Axelrod at the Royal Festival Hall.

The band’s line-up features Nigel Price (guitar), Pete Whittaker (Hammond organ) and Matt Home (drums).

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