‘Jazz in Hornby’ has an impressive record of staging ‘accessible’ jazz of world-class standard several times a year. Jazz evenings have a warm, friendly and informal atmosphere, helped along by the bar which is open all evening.
‘Jazz in Hornby’ was started many years ago by Sam Ashton. He calls upon his extensive knowledge of jazz music, and contacts within the jazz world to entice some especially talented performers to our small village venue.
When choosing a band my watchword is ‘accessible’, says Sam, and is all about improvisation and spontaneity. He aims for the music to be melodic and embrace a mix of styles; some blues, sometimes cool & reflective, some jazz standards and must always include some foot-tapping swing.
