Jazz at The Hedsor Social Club


In my earlier blog bit this week I asked you to make sure you had the evening free on Thursday March 10th . At that time I could not confirm who our BIG NAME in jazz  was going to be. NOW I CAN!!

He has been to Hedsor a number of times. Tonight (Feb 10th), he is at Ronnie Scotts, but on MARCH 10th he will be with US at Hedsor.

NIGEL PRICE, ace guitarist, and in my view one of the best jazz guitarists in the world will be with us again at Hedsor Jazz. He is much sought after, and will again be at the Swanage Jazz Festival in July. You can hear him, talk with him and buy CDs from him much sooner at Hedsor Jazz.

Nigel on a Previous Visit to Hedsor Jazz

This is a brief resume of his career:-

"NIGEL PRICE - who led his organ trio to pick up the 2010 Parliamentary Jazz Award for “best jazz ensemble” is one of the most highly regarded and in demand guitarists on the UK jazz scene today.He spent three years with UK funk legends - the James Taylor Quartet, placed third in the 2014 British Jazz Awards for “best guitarist” and is also a regular performer at Ronnie Scott’s, where he has played over 400 times.

His blend of flowing bebop lines, deep blues feeling and mastery of
chording has made him instantly accessible and popular with jazz audiences".

Hedsor Jazz is building a great reputation for first class jazz sessions.

For Nigel, the evening will be at our normal start time of 8.30pm and our normal entry fee of £6, and you may even win a raffle prize!!

He will of course be accompanied by our own Clive Burton Quartet!
