Details

For her last Grimsby Jazz Festival Gill Wilde wanted to present something special with local relevance. Calling upon her friends Josie Moon (poet) and Pat McCarthy (guitarist) and with the co-operation of Alan Barnes in composing and arranging they formulated this suite. It celebrates the heritage of fishing ports and their communities with evocative poems as the starting point for each piece. This works well as a concept and, of course, as effective jazz with the all-star line-up of the band. It is a fitting tribute to the contribution made by those in the fishing industry who were instrumental in feeding the nation and protecting it in times of war. The commission explores the myths, the misadventures and the realities of the trawling life; sometimes amusing sometimes sad always heartfelt.

Alan Barnes - baritone sax
Dean Masser - tenor sax
Gilad Atzmon – alto sax
Neil Yates - trumpet,
Mark Nightingale - trombone
Dave Green - bass
Pat McCarthy - guitar
John Perry - percussion
Plus Josie Moon – poetic narration

Latest CD : A recording of this suite might be available at the gig (if ready).
