Kingston Jazz Society: Guest recital by John Bell – “Valves And Things”

15 March 2016@8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

£2

Early jazz brass solos were confined to the cornet/trumpet and trombone; then the pre-War period saw growing use of the valve trombone and later the fleugel horn. Since that time, a miscellany of other brass instruments has gradually been introduced, mainly from the classical sphere, and to-night John Bell, himself a player of some of these infernal machines, takes a lightning look at some of the instruments that have surfaced in the jazz world with varying degrees of success – bass trumpets, tubas, euphoniums, mellophones, Wagner tubas, etc.
