Adrian Cox plays a fundraising concert for the National Jazz Archive as a tribute to jazz clarinettist Edmond Hall on Saturday 28 September, in Loughton, Essex.
‘Profoundly Blue’ is a concert celebrating the music of Louisiana-born clarinettist Edmond Hall. The show stars clarinettist star Adrian Cox with his fine band – Joe Webb (piano), Simon Read (bass) and Gethin Jones (drums). The title ‘Profoundly Blue’ comes from the 1941 hit album which featured Edmond Hall with Meade Lux Lewis and Charlie Christian. Adrian leads the quartet with this as a starting point and continues through a programme of tunes from the albums ‘Rumpus on Rampart’ and ‘Petit Fleur’. Adrian’s love for the clarinet is eminent in his soulful playing as you will hear in this fantastic tribute to one of the true legends of jazz. Time Out has described him as ‘London’s most charismatic reeds man’.
