An evening not to be missed…

UMWLive Gig:
JAZZ SUITE: STAN TRACEY’S UNDER MILK WOOD

The Undoubted major jazz work ever conceived in the UK, this classic piece is now rarely performed in its entirety.

Stan Tracey’s music will be performed this evening by Bobby Wellins, who of course featured on the original recording in 1965, and is joined by Steve Melling on piano, Andy Cleyndert on bass and Clark Tracey on drums as ever. Narrated extracts for this performance will be read by Ben Tracey, Stan’s grandson who recently collaborated on “A Child’s Xmas” to superb reviews.

Jazz Film:
STAN TRACEY: THE GODFATHER OF BRITISH JAZZ

With its rich sound design and sumptuous digital cinematography, ‘Stan Tracey: The Godfather of British Jazz’ is a deeply moving portrait of one musician’s lifetime achievement.

In a career spanning 60 years as pianist and composer, Tracey, widely regarded as Britain’s greatest living arranger, recalls his life with unprecedented honesty. Through its mix of archive, landscape and interviews with musical giants such as saxophonist Courtney Pine, Bobby Wellins, saxophonist who worked regularly with Stan, doyenne Cleo Laine and jazz eminence Humphrey Lyttleton, a story of British culture emerges that had never been told before. Nominated for 2003 Grierson Award: Best Arts Documentary.
