Two of the UK’s undisputed titans of the tenor saxophone meet for this special one-off performance.
Art Themen is the jazz equivalent of a national treasure. One of the most individual voices in UK jazz history Art started out playing with ‘blues-boom’ legend Alexis Korner before a long and fruitful association with Stan Tracey. Along the way Themen has made music with such luminaries as Michael Garrick, Graham Collier and Ian Carr.
