Andrew Cleyndert with Nadim Teimoori (saxophones), Mark Edwards (piano) and Winston Clifford (drums)
It is hard to overestimate the sheer amount of experience of Andrew Cleyndert. An incredibly youthful spirit, he was Ronnie Scott’s last bass player and has performed at the highest level over three decades.
Cleyndert has performed at Lauderdale House many times, not least with the iconic Stan Tracey and as recently as last December with the wonderful Tony Kofi Cannonball Adderley project. So we welcome his decision to step up and lead a band himself!
Brighton’s Mark Edwards is a phenomenal pianist, who worked regularly with the late – and truly great – Bobby Wellins. Winston Clifford is an outstanding drummer (and Director Katherine Ives’s favourite). When Winston is on the band, the swing is going to be right in the pocket! Which leaves one new face to be savoured; tenor Nadim Teimoori. When our programmer Brian Blain heard him perform three years ago, he was blown away by his talent. He now lives in Doncaster and is coming down specially for this gig.
Jazz in the House continues with Andrew Cleyndert featuring Mark Edwards, Winston Clifford and Nadim Teimoori. Doors open at 8pm and the concert begins at 8.30pm. The bar will be open from late afternoon for drinks and snacks.
