Artist Bio

How many top British jazzmen spent their working lives as consultant orthopaedic surgeons and also played saxophone on Joe Cocker’s hit With a Little Help from my Friends? It’s surprising that the answer is as many as one, but Art Themen fills the bill! Art’s musical life has taken him from the award-winning Cambridge University Jazz Band to touring with such blues stars as Mick Jagger and Alexis Korner to a jazz career of wonderful originality and unpredictability which has gained even more momentum in the years since he left the operating theatre behind him.
