Due to unforeseen circumstances, Coastguard Studio have taken the decision to cancel Gilad Atzmon’s appearance at La Havana Jazz Club this Friday.
The event will still be going ahead and will feature the wonderful Christian Brewer an alto sax phenomenon…
His musical roots, besides jazz, include a solid footing in funk and groove orientated music, leading to a variety of commercial work with leading acts including reggae trombonist Rico Rodriguez, Push, Paul Weller, Otis Grand, the Ragga Twins and Seal amongst many others….
Christian is truly one of the most lyrical and soulful alto players to have emerged from the UK in recent years. Loved for his melodic playing and pure tone, he has risen to prominence on the British jazz scene.
He is now a regular at London’s prestigious Ronnie Scott’s and both he and his band are in great demand, we look forward to welcoming him to The Coastguard this Friday.
