Alan Barnes & David Newton: Inside Out (CD: Woodville)Alan Barnes & David Newton: Inside Out (CD: Woodville)
This new duo recording from esteemed UK jazz musicians, multi reeds specialist Alan Barnes and pianist David Newton, is the culmination of over 33 years performing and recording together. Alan Barnes plays clarinet, and alto and baritone saxophones with equal facility and David Newton has an astonishing ability, gleaned from Dave McKenna recordings, to keep rolling bass lines going in the left hand, whilst playing soaring improvisations in the right. The pair are in inspired form on a selection of jazz gems covering a wide range from Don Redman to Chick Corea. A relaxed and beautifully recorded session with a superb warmsounding piano.

Warren Vache & Alan Barnes: The Cobbler's Waltz (CD: Woodville)Warren Vache & Alan Barnes: The Cobbler's Waltz (CD: Woodville)
Warren Vache and Alan Barnes have been playing together off and on since the late 1980’s. They recorded a string of small band dates on Zephyr Records throughout 90’s and Alan joined Warren’s 11piece band for a 3 month Coast to coast U.S. tour in 2000.

Recently, Alan put his “pet American” up for several weeks at his London abode where they had a delightful time playing Jeeves to each other’s Bertie. Several of Warren’s compositions were polished up during this period and are featured on their recent recording “The Cobbler’s Waltz”on Woodville Records. Warren has simply one of the most beautiful brass sounds in Jazz today and this session couples him with the best mainstream rhythm section in the country.

Alan Barnes, Dave O'Higgins & The Sax Section: Oh Gee! (CD: Woodville)Alan Barnes, Dave O'Higgins & The Sax Section: Oh Gee! (CD: Woodville)
Saxophonists Dave O'Higgins and Alan Barnes musical association goes back to the 1980s when they were both members of the Pizza Express Modern Jazz Sextet. For this recording they put together a superb band. Saxophonists Sam Mayne and Karen Sharp are mainstays of the UK jazz scene and no nepotism came into play in the choice of Judith O"Higgins - she is a fine section player and accomplished soloist. The rhythm section is one guaranteed to swing - an important factor in both Dave and Alan's musical philosophy.

They covered a wide range of material, from a reduction of Duke Ellington's "Ko-Ko", through Benny Carter's original arrangement of "Doozy", to Alan's original "Orejas De Cerdos" and Dave's brilliant editing and harmonization of a Dexter Gordon solo on "The Chase".

The album recorded in the old-fashioned way: a run through then straight to record. What you hear is what happened. You can instantly here all the individual sounds of the players - no need to indicate whose playing what - each player is easily recognisable, at ease in their own skin, and has their own way of doing things.

Alan Barnes Octet & Josie Moon: A Requiem (CD: Woodville)Alan Barnes Octet & Josie Moon: A Requiem (CD: Woodville)
‘A Requiem’ is a jazz and poetry commission commemorating the end of The First World War and subsequent conflicts across a century. It’s an exciting and ambitious commission of new music that brings together the creative imagination of poet Josie Moon and the dynamic composition talents of Alan Barnes and Pat McCarthy.

The music is arranged by Alan for a stellar line-up of jazz musicians: bassist Dave Green, saxophonists Gilad Atzmon and Dean Masser, trombonist Mark Nightingale, drummer Sebastiaan De Krom and trumpeter Neil Yates. It is a bold and challenging work that examines the impact of conflict on individuals across a century, moving but ultimately uplifting and soulful work, which invites the audience to both remember the history of conflict and resolve to do better in the future.
