Jazz in the House: Ben Crosland Quintet plays the Ray Davies Songbook @ Lauderdale House
Jun 20 @ 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm

Ben Crosland with Brandon Allen (saxophones), Chris Allard (guitar), Steve Lodder (keys) and Sebastian de Krom (drums)      

Yorkshire based bass guitarist Ben Crosland is a fascinating composer and arranger who regularly works with top London players. A few years ago we presented his ‘brass band’ composition, with great success. This time he has re-configured some of the music which made such an impression on him as a thirteen year old playing along to Kinks singles on the Dansette in his bedroom.

This celebration of local music legend Ray Davies will be part of the Highgate Festival 2019!

As The Jazz Mann wrote “the Quintet is not into artful or ironic post-modern de-construction. Instead Crosland’s love of his source material shines through loud and clear.”  Crosland’s rich palette contains up-tempo swing, Latin tinged balladry, jazz waltz and modern New Orleans feel, which he uses to enhance, but not swamp, the rich, melodic content of Ray Davies’s classic material.

“...with this sharp, cogent collection, a dedicated follower of Ray Davies has made him a well-respected jazz composer too” – The Times

The finale of this season of Jazz in the House is Ben Crosland Quintet plays the Ray Davies Songbook, featuring Brandon Allen, Chris Allard, Steve Lodder and Sebastian de Krom. Doors open at 8pm and the concert begins at 8.30pm. The bar will be open from late afternoon for drinks and snacks.
