Latest Music Bar Promotes PierFest: Brighton Jazz Festival ‘Saxophonist Alan Barnes and Pianist David Newton’

8pm-10:30pm // Horatios Bar on Brighton Palace Pier // TICKETS

Alan Barnes and David Newton have been playing duets for 42 years. These multiple award winners cover a vast repertoire from Louis Armstrong to Chick Corea and play with an empathy that can only come with long experience. David is one of the greatest solo jazz pianists this country has ever produced and Alan plays multi reed instruments- all the saxes, clarinet and bass clarinet. They have developed an empathy and telepathic sympathy which only playing together for many years can bring.

The emphasis, as always, is on swinging, accessibility and interplay. Expect a hugely entertaining programme of straight ahead jazz flawlessly played and interspersed with lots of anecdotes and peppered with humour.

Their latest and best album “Ask Me Now” is available on Woodville Records

Alan Barnes is a prolific international performer, composer, arranger, bandleader and touring soloist.  He is best known for his work on clarinet, alto and baritone sax, where he combines a formidable virtuosity with a musical expression and collaborative spirit that have few peers.  His range and brilliance have made him a “first call” for studio and live work since his precocious arrival on the scene more than thirty-five years ago.

His recorded catalogue is immense.  He has made over thirty albums as leader and co-leader alone, and the list of his session and side-man work includes Bjork, Bryan Ferry, Michel LeGrande, Clare Teale, Westlife, Jools Holland and Jamie Cullum. He has toured and played residencies with such diverse and demanding figures as Ruby Braff, Freddie Hubbard, Scott Hamilton, Warren Vache, Ken Peplowski, Harry Allen and Conte Candoli.

In British jazz, the young Barnes was recognized – and hired – by the established greats of the time:  Stan Tracy, John Dankworth, Kenny Baker, Bob Wilber, and Humphrey Lyttelton.  But he is equally respected for his longstanding and fruitful collaborations with contemporaries such as David Newton, Bruce Adams, and Martin Taylor.

He written many compositions and arrangements including “The Sherlock Holmes Suite” and “A Jazz Christmas Carol” and runs a successful Jazz record label Woodville Records.

Alan Barnes’s unique musicianship, indefatigable touring, and warm rapport with audiences have made him uniquely popular in British jazz.  He has received over 30 British Jazz Awards, most recently in 2016 for clarinet, and has twice been made BBC Jazz Musician of the Year.


“Barnes’ melodic sense bypasses the usual scale-running clichés that pepper the playing of lesser bop disciples.”

Peter Marsh, BBC Music Review.

“His stylistic range is quite phenomenal… He has a wonderful capacity for suggesting a given style without actually imitating anyone”

Dave Gelly, Masters Of The Jazz Saxophone

“I was relishing the prospect of Barnes’s casually consummate musicianship, deadpan humour (he could be a comedian, if jazz ever fails him), and indomitable belief in a respected place for the music’s rich history in this eclectic and often forgetful world.”

John Fordham – The Guardian

The Stealers Live at The Latest Music Bar

Alex Roberts – Anderson (Guitar and lead vocals), Noah Longhurst (Drums), George Hart (Guitar) and Junior Vieira-Dawes (Bass). In the summer of 2020, one of the industry’s leading punk bands showed an interest in The Stealers and later that month they were in the studio recording with Don Bird of Lady Bird. The Stealers are a band to watch and are for sure the underdogs of the new Punk Rock scene which is starting to take shape
