The Chris Holmes Jazz Trio, with John Hallam

Apr 5, 2017

The Chris Holmes Jazz Trio comprising Chris Holmes (piano), Dave Turner (double bass), Paul Tuite (drums) with John Hallam (saxophones and clarinet).

Chris developed an interest in Jazz whilst studying music at Manchester University and the RNCM. After graduating he moved initially to London and then Bermuda to work professionally with a band. On returning to Manchester he formed his own trio which soon became well known in North West jazz circles, accompanying many top national and international instrumentalists and singers.  On this occasion the trio is joined by John Hallam a fluent and lyrical performer on clarinet and saxophones. He also has played with some of the finest musicians from both sides of the Atlantic. His work includes recordings for radio and TV, jazz workshops and projects for education.

Their programme will include melodic standards, tunes from the Great American Song Book and some more contemporary compositions.
