Ben Holder’s Gypsy Jazz Christmas Special

(violin/vocals, guitar, double bass & drums)

Ben will be recording a new Christmas album featuring festive jazz standards as well as a clutch of his own compositions. The quartet (Ben, Jez Cook, Paul and drummer Nick Millward) will be performing most of these live and of course the CD will be available for sale on the night. Ben’s prowess as a violinist is legendary, but his composing is also first class – full of melody and for this new CD imbued with an infectious sense of gypsy jazz swing. Jez Cook is truly an astounding guitarist and few know that he is one of the most respected ‘manouche’ players in the UK, so it seemed natural for Ben to record his new material with Jez playing the classic Maccaferry acoustic guitar, with ex-Gypsy Fire bassist Paul and top drummer Nick Millward on a cut-down kit playing predominantly brushes.

Show starts 8pm.
