Art Themen’s career has taken in rhythm and blues and a distinguished career as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon before settling to become one of the most versatile, fluent and cogent tenor players around. Patrons of last year’s Jazz Festival will remember Art revisiting his blues past spectacularly by sitting in with The Shufflepack. At the moment, when not taking gigs as featured soloist, Art can often be found with Pete Whitaker and George Double as Thane and the Villeins.
‘Themen is one of the very few totally original, utterly engaging jazz musicians around.’ – Dave Gelly, The Observer
