Ben Crosland Quartet
June 25th, 2022
Jazz Nairn is looking forward to the visit of the Quintet on Saturday 25th June at Nairn Community Cenre.
As a very accomplished arranger and an excellent bass guitarist Ben Crosland has rewritten and developed the prolific and highly varied output of Ray Davies, created for his legendary rock-pop outfit The Kinks.
Strong grooves, a natural swing and strong, evocative melodies characterise Ray Davies' songs which allows them to be beautifully re-interpreted in a more contemporary fashion. From straight-ahead swing through 8th feel grooves and ballads to reggae, Crosland and the band shine a new light on these classic songs.
The Quintet features Crosland on bass, Gordon Mc Neil on tenor and soprano saxophones, Malcolm MacFarlane on guitar, Alan Benzie on piano and keyboards, and Tom Gordon on drums.
Venue: Nairn Community & Arts Centre
