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

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).
