ALAN BARNES OCTET - JAZZ PORTRAITS
This long established octet has always been a show-case for Alan’s arranging and composing skills. This new suite of compositions takes its cue from Duke Ellington’s practise of presenting a separate portrait of each member of the band, written to their strengths and trying to capture their essence as musicians.
