Jazz club guests

TJ Johnson and his Band are the guests at the Chichester Jazz Club at the Pallant Suite, South Pallant, Chichester, on Friday, October 7.

Club spokesman Hugh Ashton said: “If you like your jazz exciting, popular and fun, then the return this month of TJ Johnson and his Band should be a date for your diaries.

“Since last playing for Chichester Jazz Club in December 2009, TJ has made four sell-out appearances at London’s Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club and has released two excellent albums: Three Teardrops, a collection of heartfelt songs - mainly country music classics and songs penned by TJ - as well as his I’ve Got The World On A String collection of mainstream and swing standards.

“Expect his concert to include music from these new albums plus the varied repertoire that has proved to be so popular in the past. So to the fore will be some stunning New Orleans jazz, rhythm and blues, Duke Ellington compositions plus the band’s excellent instrumentals.”

The music kicks off at 7.45pm and more information is available on www.chichesterjazzclub.co.uk. Advance guest tickets are on sale at Chichester Tourist Information Centre, South Street on 01243 775888.
