About Us

The Humphrey Lyttelton Band concert on 17 March 2018 brought to a close 20 years of Pinner Jazz in Pinner Parish Church. It was fitting to welcome them because Humphrey Lyttelton and his band played in our opening season in 1998, the first of many big names to have played here. The Church has sponsored and organised these concerts to bring good jazz to the local community and we hope you agree that we have succeeded.

The Buck Clayton Legacy Band Salutes Duke Ellington

01/04/2017, 20:00

The last time this superb band came before us it was to play the music of their mentor, Buck Clayton. Now they’re tackling the work of Duke Ellington, easily the most prolific composer in jazz. Which of his myriad pieces will they choose to play? The writer and broadcaster Alyn Shipton co-leads the band from the back, you might say, as he’s the bassist, with the always excellent Bobby Worth alongside on drums and Martin Litton on piano to evoke the great man himself. There have been a few changes to the line-up since our original announcement, but the front-liners are all top-drawer, starting with Ian Smith and Menno Daams on trumpet, Robert Fowler on alto sax, Karen Sharp on tenor sax and last man standing, trombonist Winston Rollins. Great music in good hands: Duke would doubtless love it madly.

I wish to thank the many people who have made 20 years of Pinner Jazz possible - the organising committee and helpers, people who have provided interval refreshments, sound system operators, people who have prepared publicity posters and put advertising boards round about, people who have run the website and arranged publicity, the huge number of musicians who have played here over the years, and above all the audiences who have supported us so loyally.

I am very pleased to say that it is not the end of jazz concerts, because the new Music in Pinner Series will comprise a mixture of classical and jazz concerts. The series will be announced soon through a new website and by emailing. 

With good wishes

Stuart Nattrass - chairman of Pinner Jazz organising committee
