Saxophonist, composer and teacher Mornington Lockett first came to prominence with the Ronnie Scott Quintet in the 1990’s. His co-led group ‘New Jazz Couriers’ won the 2002 British Jazz Award for Best Small Group and he also worked regularly with the legendary pianist Stan Tracey as well as the brilliant altoist Peter King. Mornington’s special guest is trumpeter Henry Lowther, who is also celebrating his 80th Birthday this week! One of the UK's finest and most respected jazz trumpet players, over the last 50 years Henry has performed with the likes of John Dankworth, Keef Hartley Band (Woodstock,1969), Kenny Wheeler, Stan Tracey and Elton John. Making up the rest of the band will be Mornington’s regular rhythm section of Geoff Gascoyne-bass and Mark Fletcher-drums, along with Gareth Williams (Claire Martin, Us3) on piano.
