An exciting, playful and inventive saxophonist, Art Themen has been a leading light of the British jazz scene for over 50 years. Perhaps best known for his long association with the iconic UK pianist Stan Tracey he was described by The Observer as "One of the tiny handful of undeniably perfect jazz musicians”. Along with organist Pete Whittaker and drummer George Double the trio will be featuring material from their albums “Thane & The Villeins” & the recently released "Dizzy Moods", a collection of groove-led re-imaginings of songs from the jazz canon.
“Themen…excellent...thrilling” Jazz UK; "Just once in a while one chances upon a new album that is just perfect, and love at first listen. Thane & The Villeins is one of those rare gems." Bebop Spoken Here; "Themen, a veteran master now, in such eloquent form" Jazzwise
