Event Details

The Tenor from The West returns to Kent for one gig only – MARTIN DALE                                      


MARTIN  DALE – Here is a name from the past.  This former Royal Marine was based at Deal and then moved back to his home town Plymouth.  This might turn out to be not only a Jazz reunion, but also a ROYAL MARINE REUNION.  Remember him as a top tenor man playing at Mike & Wendy Porter Wards Old School House Jazz at Teynham – great times & great jazz.

Martin was with the best in jazz that were based in Kent i.e. Johnny Burch & Dick Morrissey, (sadly no longer with us) to name just two of the galaxy of jazz men in Kent at the time, and we are pleased to still have some of the best in jazz in our county and the southeast.

Martin moved back to Plymouth and is definitely the sax star of the West, where he runs his own modern jazz outfits and combines a lot with Exeter based award winning pianist CRAIG MILVERTON a regular at The FJC for many years.

Plus – In this Quality Quintet –

DOMINIC ASHWORTH on guitar – This Canadian guitarist is world class by any standards and we are lucky to have such quality at The FJC.  Dom has just released his latest CD ‘Psyche’

ANDREW CLEYNDERT on double bass.  So much experience & one of the UK’s top men.

ROD BROWN on drums.  Recognised in the jazz world as one of the UK’s finest. Rod travels from Lympne to all corners of  the UK on a daily basis to accompany all the top headliners in the jazz world – Rod is a top man

The best of British Jazz!
