SSSHHH! ANDREW LOGAN MUSEUM JAZZ NIGHT

WITH PAUL MASON AND HIS SECRET SEXTET

****Friday 8 January 2016****

 

Paul Mason swings back into action at the Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture with his Secret Sextet for an eclectic and exciting New Year’s exploration of jazz.   Shake off that turkey, mince pies and christmas port daze with us from 8pm.

 

This presentation is the final in trio of winter evenings presenting Jazz at the Berriew museum and will be an opportunity to hear an eccentric mix of Jazz from the 1950’s to the present, from the likes of Art Pepper, Yusef Lateef, Oliver Nelson Jerry Bergonzi, and many more ground-breaking Jazz vis

 

ionaries.

 

Mason was trained at the Royal College of Music and has played most of the major London Concert Halls and West End, eventually specialising in Big Bands, Chamber Jazz and creative improvisation.  He played at Elton John’s infamous birthday party (the one with the Porsche) and now lives in mid-Wales running Jazz groups for the love of it.  The Secret Sextet, whose inaugural performance was at ALMoS in May 2015, is his latest and most colourful concoction of sounds, taking the best of modern(ish) Jazz to make beautiful, melodic, creative music.

 

“We are thrilled and delighted to have such wonderful, eminent musicians playing at the museum” said Michael Davis, Chair of the Board, “what a way to finish our trio of jazz evenings”.

 

Paul Mason’s Secret Sextet will play shortly after doors open at 8pm.  Tickets are £15, including a light supper and can be bought from the museum, Andrew Logan website (www.andrewlogan.org), or in person at R H Bunners, Montgomery.

 

The Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture opened in Berriew in 1991 and houses a glittering selection of Logan’s signature sculptures and jewellery.  The museum is open 12 – 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays throughout June, July, August and September and by arrangement.  Entry is only £3.00 (concs £1.50).  Family tickets available.
