8.00 pm

The Blue Room at The Lawn, Lincoln

Tenor saxophonist Brandon’s Alan's admiration of the great US saxophonist Gene Ammons started 25 years ago, when he bought one of his recordings, and it has not dimmed with time.

Ammons was one of the founders of the Chicago style of tenor saxophone playing, alongside contemporaries Dexter Gordon and Sonny Stitt, but he stayed in touch with the R & B and Blues of his day and his playing was one of the models for the soul-jazz movement of the ‘60s.

Brandon has regularly hosted the Late Late Show at Ronnie Scotts where he began to introduce the audience to this highly approachable music now to be played in Lincoln by a stellar quartet.

Tickets £14, Students & Under 16s £7 available online at www.jazz.jazzpac.co.uk and John Holland tel: 01522 529717

I Fagiolini

7.30 pm

St Wulfram’s Church, Grantham, NG31 6RR

Mixed Vocal Salad (and a side order of singing science)

I  Fagiolini  are  known  the  world  over  for  their  vivid  performances  of characterful  choral  music. This  concert  features  staggeringly  beautiful Renaissance pieces – plangent laments by Tomkins and Monteverdi - along with a surprisingly boisterous hunt for a stag with full sound effects, like a Breughel picture come to life.  In a similar spirit but from the last century, Benjamin Britten marries graphically descriptive medieval texts with humour and power, there’s some Flanders & Swann and an aural strip cartoon from 1966.  In addition, the group combines with local students to show some of the science behind singing.  (The noises you make are also a good way to get a seat on a crowded bus.)

The concert also includes a special short performance of some investigation into how science works in music by children from local schools put together with I Fagiolini's director, Robert Hollingworth.
