North Vancouver, BC - Centennial Theatre presents The Dime Notes - Saturday, October 26, 2019 at 7:30 pm
The Dime Notes
– small band, huge swing! London’s blues drenched, clarinet-driven, hard-swinging 1920’s vintage jazz band is coming to Centennial Theatre!
The Dime Notes dig back into the blues-drenched sounds of clarinet-driven 1920’s New Orleans jazz, unearthing a repertoire of stomps, blues and forgotten gems of the era from musicians such as Jelly Roll Morton, Johnny Dodds, and Red Nichols.
Fronted by Chris Barber’s long-time clarinetist David Horniblow, an established figure on the European jazz stage and American pianist/composer/musicologist and Morton specialist Andrew Oliver, the band is anchored by the unstoppable pulse of London’s knockout rhythm section, guitarist Dave Kelbie (Django a la Creole and Sweet Chorus) and bassist Louis Thomas, well known across the international scene for his swing, huge sound and stylistic versatility.
The Dime Notes
present a fresh take on a timeless style, emphasizing the propulsive grooves and sultry melodies which made early jazz revolutionary, controversial, and wildly popular.
