“Irrepressible swing and drive, and inventiveness” – Trio Records
For more than a decade Nigel Price and Vasilis Xenopoulos have established a strong musical partnership through their shared stylistic and artistic connections. Their last album “Sidekicks” is a compilation of Jazz Standards where each one of them pays homage to some of the greatest guitar/saxophone collaboration in the history of Jazz such as Jim Hall/Sony Rollins, Wes Montgomery/Johnny Griffin, Kenny Burrell/Stanley Turrentine, Stan Getz/Charlie Byrd and from the UK jazz scene Dave Cliff/Geoff Simkins and the legendary Morrissey/Mullen.
★★★★ “Downright irresistible!” The Guardian

A view from the audience
Some comments from the Clark Tracey concert in April, with thanks to everyone who watched…
The evening was a great success with some material I didn’t know. And I thought your hosting was excellent, superbly conceived and executed.. sufficiently in tune with both your interviewees and your subject matter, that everything was ‘just so’ . Great stuff- Richard
Last evening was really great, I enjoyed it very much, thanks for all you do and the GJC team too! – Roy
Wonderful concert last night with Clark Tracy et al. What a great medley of compositions by his father Stan. I thought that Simon Allen on Saxes was excellent. Again the lighting & camera work was superb. Thank you for organising & I look forward to the next concert. – Steve
Thanks for a brilliant concert last night. I thought that the whole event was very professional, the filming and sound was spot on. In conclusion, a good job well done in spectacular fashion. – Peter
Truly wonderful event. Playing was absolutely sublime! Great hosting by you Marianne! And great job on camera work. – Zoe
Another very good gig. Thank you for organising it, and congratulations for collecting more participatory jazz clubs along the way. – Martin
Thanks for the great music last night, by very good musicians. Hope you carry on with the live streaming even after everything opens up, as it is good to access at home.- Elaine
Very enjoyable gig last evening. Close your eyes and it could have been Stan at the piano! So well done to Bruce & all. – Peter
Thanks, Marianne, for organising the wonderful live stream concert this evening. As Bruce said, perhaps the future of jazz concerts is a live concert, with an audience, but reaching a much wider audience as well via simultaneous live streaming. What made the difference, I thought, between watching a concert on YouTube, of which there are many, was the interactive Q&A at the end. As we were eating dinner, we said it was like being at Ronnie Scotts and eating while watching a jazz concert.- John
Thank you so much for a wonderful gig. It was such a treat.- Jane
Just a short message to register thanks to you and all involved for the work you put in to provide the livestream event earlier this week. The sound and vison were both excellent and it was great to enjoy the experience of a live gig once again. Many thanks and I look forward to future events.- Colin
