Tue November 28: George Crowley with the Simon Brown Trio George Crowley (tenor / clarinet)
Simon Brown (piano)
José Canha (bass)
Alex Best (drums)
Bistro Britannia @ The Guildhall
Entry £12 / U25s £6
Originally from Norwich and a former student of Norwich School, George is now based in London as a busy saxophonist, clarinettist, composer and promoter.

Since his arrival in the capital in 2007, Crowley has steadily established himself as a key player within the city's burgeoning creative jazz and improv scene, active across a range of styles and through his energy and expressive, warm saxophone sound, marking himself out as a musician who demands attention. As such he has collaborated and performed with some of the most exciting contemporary projects, including Melt Yourself Down, Julian Argüelles' Septet, Yazz Ahmed, Red Snapper, the Michael Chillingworth Septet, Rick Simpson's Klämmer and the Olie Brice Quartet featuring Jeff Williams. We're delighted to be able to feature him at the club this evening as we appear for the first time in The Guildhall's Bistro Britannia.
