Liquorice Stick All-Sorts Band (jazz)

The clarinet will come to the fore on the 1st of March when Alan Barnes brings his new trio to the Under Ground Theatre jazz club. Often overlooked in favour of the saxophone, the Liquorice Stick All-Sorts Band are attempting to swing the balance back to the clarinet. I previously blogged about Alan Barnes ahead of his June 2012 visit to Eastbourne and March's trio will also include the talented Paul Clarvis on drums. The third man is Jim Hart on vibes.

Drummer Paul Clarvis is in great demand as a session player counting a number of film scores among his performances - you might have heard his percussion work in The Trumpet, East Is East or Quills. Jim Hart began his musical career as a drummer and pianist - aged just four! - but is now well-known as an intuitive and inventive vibraphone player. He is a founder member of London's LOOP collective and has toured extensively with visiting American musicians over the last few years.

Under Ground Theatre, Fri 1st Mar, 20:00.
Tickets £11 (£10 members and students), available online, by calling 0845 680 1926, or in person at the Under Ground Theatre and the Tourist Information Centre
