It’s billed as the most famous partnership in British jazz – and it’s coming to Berkhamsted next week.

The Berkhamsted Jazz concert at the town’s Civic Centre on Saturday, October 12, will spotlight the enduring talents of Stan Tracey and Bobby Wellins.

Legendary pianist Stan is now well into his 80s but shows no signs of slowing down, and he has been making music with sax great Bobby for nearly 50 years.

They teamed up in 1965 on the Stan Tracey Quartet’s famous recording of Under Milk Wood, chosen by Jazz UK magazine readers as their all-time favourite British jazz album.

Also on the stand will be Andy Cleyndert on bass and Clark Tracey on drums.

It’s only £10 for members and Dacorum Card holders, and £13 for visitors and guests. Tickets are usually available on the door, but visit www.berkhamstedjazz.co.uk for reservation details.
