An outstanding clarinettist, alto saxophonist and baritone saxophonist for some 40 years – apart from other instruments too numerous to mention – Alan Barnes has gained a reputation for his near-annual suites, many on themes out of Charles Dickens. 2022 is the year of Copperfield, but we at Birmingham can enjoy the instrumental skills that have brought Alan over 30 British Jazz Awards – plus his uniquely droll way with words!

‘Barnes’ melodic sense bypasses the usual scale-running clichés that pepper the playing of lesser bop disciples.’ – Peter Marsh, BBC Music Magazine.
