We welcome back one of the finest vintage jazz ensembles in the world. Their leader is piano maestro Keith Nichols renowned for his dazzling stride and ragtime and his witty presentation. His Hot 5 features guitarist, banjoist and crooner Thomas Spats Langham who has a vast repertoire of hits from the ‘20s and ‘30s, Enrico Tomasso, the greatest Louis Armstrong style trumpeter in Europe and sax and clarinet virtuoso Trevor Whiting who conjures up Sidney Bechet, Johnny Hodges & Jimmy Noone. Last but not least is Richard Pite the only jazzman mad enough to tackle the sousaphone and drums simultaneously!
Line-up: Keith Nichols piano, Enrico Tomasso trumpet, Trevor Whiting reeds, Tom ‘Spats’ Langham banjo, Richard Pite bass/sousa/drums
