Winston Clifford/Jonathan Gee Quartet – Alec Sykes Celebration Concert
Winston Clifford – www.wakefieldjazz.orgWakefield Jazz was founded in 1987 by Alec Sykes, whose boundless enthusiasm for both the music and the musicians (alongside his wife Faith) made the club so popular with performers and audiences alike. Alec died in 2020 – this will be a special performance by musicians particularly appreciated by Alec and Faith.
Until now, we haven’t been able to put on a suitable commemoration at the club. This special quartet comprises four luminaries of the British jazz scene over the past 30 years, always popular at Wakefield Jazz, and will feature some of the music written a decade ago by Jonathan Gee to celebrate 25 years of the club.
Denys Baptiste – sax
Jonathan Gee – piano
