Herts Jazz Club returns to Welwyn Garden City tonight (Sunday) after the Easter break with a top pianist.

The Nikki Iles Quartet plays the Hawthorne Theatre complex at Campus West.

Over the last two decades, Nikki Iles has established herself as one of the UK’s finest composers and pianists.

She is a well-respected jazz educator and twice been nominated for the Parliamentary Jazz Education Award. She currently teaches at the Royal Academy, Guildhall and Trinity as well as Middlesex University.

Iles herself was a graduate of Leeds College of Music and while in Yorkshire she became a favourite accompanist at the Wakefield Jazz Club for jazz luminaries such as Dick Morrisey, Jim Mullen, Pete King, Iain Ballamy, Scott Hamilton, Art Farmer and Teddy Edwards among others.

Playing highlights in the last couple of years have included The Julian Arguelles Octet, The Kenny Wheeler Big Band, The Printmakers with Norma Winstone and Mike Walker, Martin Speake’s ECM tour and ‘Renga’ with Rufus Reid.

Joining her on Sunday from 7.30pm will be Stan Sulzman on saxes, Arnie Somogyi on bass and Clark Tracey on drums.

The last remaining tickets are available from the club’s website at www.hertsjazz.co.uk/currentseason.html and the Hawthorne Theatre box office.

Advance tickets cost £3 students, £8 members, £10 concessions and £11 full.

Walk-ups are £5 students, £9 members, £11 concessions and £13 full.
