Old friends Dave Kelbie and Sebastien Girardot help us present a showcase of Reinhardt classics, originals and New Orleans repertoire.

7.14 Dime Notes w/ Evan Christopher, Edinburgh Jazz Festival

Evan Christopher with the Dime Notes

Saturday, 14 July 2018

It will be great to be back at the Edinburgh Jazz Festival. This year, being the New Orleans tricentennial, I will strive to fly the flag of the New Orleans tradition high, for all to see. I’ll do this with the able assistance of a remarkable quartet on the vintage jazz scene, the Dime Notes. Led by my old friend Dave Kelbie, we will pay tribute to early pioneers who created the music marketed around the world as jazz. Of course, with two reeds in the mix, many of my clarinet heroes will get a special nod.
