ORIGINALS and arrangements from his latest album, Any Minute Now are being performed by the Simon Allen Quintet at Herts Jazz Club on Sunday.

Simon’s CV reads like a who’s who of jazz today. He won the Daily Telegraph Jazz Musician of the Year at the age of 16 and since then has been seen performing alongside artists of the stature of Wynton Marsalis, Stan Tracey, Kenny Wheeler, Django Bates, Iain Ballamy and Julian Joseph.

He was chosen to lead the horn section in the band for the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, backing artists such as Phil Collins, Eric Clapton and Paul McCartney.

Recently he has performed with Jamie Cullum and recorded with Katie Melua.

Simon will be joined by Martin Shaw (trumpet), Tom Cawley (piano), Laurence Cottle (bass) and Mike Bradley (drums).

Tickets are £5 for students and under-21s, £11 in advance from http://www.hawthornetheatre.co.uk/whatsonstage.html and £13 at the door.
