Dan Reinstein ft. Art Themen Photo 1

American born but British educated, saxophonist Dan Reinstein first began playing at the old 606 Club on Kings Road when he was a medical undergraduate. Even then he was impressive, and after taking time off from his medical studies to attend the Berklee School of Music he became even more remarkable. Dan returned to the US in the early 90s where he became one of the world’s leading experts in laser eye surgery (he’s now officially Professor Reinstein). But he never stopped performing, and when he returned to London to live and work it was great to hear his fluent, classic hard-bop, muscular sax playing again at the Club, and the rest, as they say, is history-Dan & his quintet have performed here for the last 21 years.The repertoire consists of best-loved jazz standards from the 50's through the 90's from artists including Miles, Hancock, Silver and more. Tonight, joining Dan's band of ace UK musicians (Tim Lapthorn-piano, Steve Rose-bass & Winston Clifford-drums) is special guest Art Themen. An exciting, playful and inventive saxophonist, Art 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”.
