Loxwood Jazz & Blues Club - The Clarinet Maestros

16th October 2018

Location: North Hall, Loxwood, RH14 0SF


Ken Peplowski, Julian Stringle and Simon Bates 

 

 

After a very popular sell our show at Loxwood Jazz in 2017, the American clarinet star Ken Peplowski& Europe’s premier jazz clarinetist and Loxwood Jazz favourite Julian Marc Stringle return to perform with Simon and the trio. ‘The Clarinet Maestros’ will perform an exciting and refreshing programme of great melodies by both British and American tunesmiths.


Starting his career off playing in the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, the litany of musicians Ken has collaborated with includes: Mel Torme, Charlie Byrd, Peggy Lee, George Shearing, Madonna, Hank Jones, Rosemary Clooney, Tom Harrell,  James Moody, Cedar Walton, Houston Person, Woody Allen and Marianne Faithfull. In 1984, Benny Goodman came out of retirement and put together a new band, hiring Ken on tenor saxophone. He has recorded more than 50 CDs as a soloist, over 400 as a sideman and has won the Down Beat best clarinetist award several times!


"Mr. Peplowski sounds the way (Benny) Goodman might if he had kept evolving, kept on listening to new music, kept refining his sound, polishing his craft, and expanding his musical purview into the 21st century.” Will Friedwald in The Wall Street Journal, December 2012


"Ken Peplowski is arguably the greatest living jazz clarinetist" Russell Davies, BBC2
