The new season of weekly jazz concerts at the Royal British Legion in Llay continues on Tuesday, February 23 with a performance by Dave Hassell’s new Brazilian Project.
With more than 40 years’ professional experience, Dave Hassell has worked with many of Britain’s leading jazz musicians as well as American greats such as Charles McPherson, Barney Kessell, Tal Farlow, Al Grey, Clark Terry, Joe Newman, Art Farmer and Dr John to name a few and with this new band he demonstrates why he is also one of the UK’s foremost authorities on Latin American music.
Joining Dave in his new venture is one of his favourite featured front-line players, saxophonist Andy Scott, leader of the nine sax-led Sax Assault and who has performed across Europe and Japan as leader of the Apollo Sax Quartet.
