Brandon Allen (tenor sax) / Chris Ingham (piano) / Arnie Somogyi (double bass) / George Double (drums)

Red hot sax and a power trio to match are what Santa has for us in his bulging seasonal sack this year.

Originally from Perth, Western Australia, Brandon relocated to London in 2000. His powerful tenor playing is much in demand as a band leader, soloist and with a huge range of musicians in both live and recorded work plus film soundtracks (Alfie-2004, The Look Of Love 2013).   He is the founder and director of the Highgate Jazz with Soul Festival.

Born in Newcastle Upon Tyne, Chris was supplanted to Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk aged ten.  Having pursued a successful song writing, rock and jazz career his current activities include saluting the jazz of Dudley Moore; celebrating Hoagy Carmichael with his quartet featuring trumpeter Paul Higgs; being MD/MC of Jazz At The Movies featuring singer Joanna Eden. His various bands are firm favourites at CMJ.

"Brandon Allen is arguably the most exciting tenor player in Britain today. His phrasing is unashamedly emotional, soaked in the blues tradition."   Tony Hall - Jazzwise

"Unfailingly tuneful and spiced with gentle harmonic guile...Dudley would have been delighted"
