The music of Duke Ellington at the Corner Pocket Jazz Club

Monday 05 November 2012 Updated: 06/11 09:05

THE Corner Pocket Jazz and Blues Club features the music of Johnny Hodges, long time member of the Duke Ellington Band, and will showcase saxophonist Richard Exall whose CV reads like a compendium of British jazz.

He has played with the Glenn Miller Orchestra UK, The Memphis Belle Orchestra, the Nelson Riddle Orchestra UK, the Ross Mitchell Band and the Chris Barber Big Band.

More recently he has switched to a more traditional style where among the artists he has performed with are the Pasadena Roof Orchestra, the Charleston Chasers and his own band Shooting Stars which features Spats Langham and Malcolm Sked of Hot Fingers.

At the Corner Pocket on Tuesday, November 13 Richard will be backed by the Mike Kemp Trio, who played at the club in August.

Mike is an alumnus of Bablake School, whose Former Pupils' building on Fleet Street next to St John's Church is the home of the club.

Admission is £6 and doors open at 7.30pm.
