Oxford Arts Group and The Albion Beatnik present 'WHAT IS JAZZ'? a humorous talk by saxophonist Alan Barnes with bassist Alyn Shipton, illustrated by musical example, film AND concert.
Saxophonist ALAN BARNES picks up jazz awards with tedious regularity and is probably the most popular performer on the jazz club circuit, known for his verbal wit as well as his post-bop hard swinging style.
ALYN SHIPTON is a broadcaster on Radio 3 (Jazz Record Requests and other shows), a leading biographer, The Times jazz correspondent and a jazz bassist.
This is a special show created for Oxford Arts Group by the original long-haired luddite from Littlemore, DENNIS HARRISON.
Tea, wine, cake, crumpet and other recreational substances available.
Loose jiving daddy-os: £6
Arts card carrying hipsters: £5
