The Aspidistra Drawing Room Orchestra is an orchestra that specialises in the type of light classical music that is usually referred to as 'Palm Court Music' or 'Salon Music'. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries there was an enormous appeA concert of popular music from the beginning of the last century, performed in style by this authentic ensemble consisting of string quartet, piano, flute and oboe, praised for their lively interpretation of the genre.

The Aspidistra Drawing Room Orchestra started from very small beginnings: a group of friends and a folder of music. However, since the mid-1990s they have steadily expanded their repertoire, continually hunting for new material.

Aspidistra made their Radio debut when the BBC used some tracks from the Best of Palm Court as background music for the radio play 'Tears of War' on Remembrance Day 2002. Since then their recordings have been heard regularly on Brian Kay's light programme and as background music for other radio plays. Their music was also used for 'The Producer Prince', a TV documentary based on interviews with Prince Alessandro Tasca di Cuto, the son of an illustrious Sicilian family. Sadly, his father squandered the family fortunes and died penniless in 1927.

Jazz in the House

Now here's a mouth-watering prospect, two of the most accomplished and exciting saxophone players anywhere, coming together from very different backgrounds. This exciting new band showcases the contrasting alto saxophone talents of the co-leaders. Tony Kofi is a heavier-toned, blues-drenched wailer of the Jackie McLean School, whilst Barnes has taken the lighter, crisply-articulated phrasing of Art Pepper as his guiding light. Put the two different approaches together and the chemistry is instantly explosive, producing some of the most committed, yet accessible, hard- swinging music around.
Alan Barnes, arguably the UK's most popular jazz musician, has had a career which has taken in every aspect of mainstream jazz from Humphrey Lyttelton to composing musical theatre with the late Alan P. Plater and innumerable commissions for all kinds of Big Bands. Kofi, after studying at Berklee's famous jazz conservatory, has played with many of the world's leading jazz musicians such as Donald Byrd and Eddie Henderson. His own groups have won BBC and Parliamentary Jazz Awards.....and he is one of the few jazz players to have been nominated for a MOBO Award. The rhythm section is 'new-generation' sparky and it should be an evening of genuine surprises.

Ed Jones Quartet

Ed Jones, tenor saxophone
Ross Stanley, piano and keyboard
Riaan Vosloo, bass
Tim Giles, drums

Jazz in the House

At the end of 2016, London Jazz News commended tenor saxophonist Jones for outstanding performances heard in the course of the year. Over the years he could have been heard with the Avantists in Finland, and Herbie Hancock's bass player Paul Jackson in Japan, and as a major voice in Incognito and Geoff Wilkinson's US3. Even in the 90's he was writing for electronica and strings and you might still catch him in some small venue playing standards and blues as well as anyone.
The rest of the band are equally versatile. Stanley must be in more bands than any pianist, while Giles, who juggles all kinds of groups, has recently been made an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music. This is jazz not to miss!
