Thurs 25th April - Henry Lowther’s Still Waters 

Admission £12 or £15 for gig and pre gig talk (talk starts at 7pm).

UK trumpet icon HENRY LOWTHER makes his SoundCellar debut with his band STILL WATERS. Henry has over 50 years’ playing experience from a 45 year association with John Dankworth to lead trumpet with both Gil Evans and George Russell, from Woodstock in 1969 with Keef Hartley’s Band to working with pop/rock icons such as Elton John, Paul McCartney, David Bowie and Pink Floyd. Still Waters was born out a long association and friendship between Henry and bassist Dave Green. They both felt that the time had arrived to play the music of their choice, together with some of the finest jazz musicians working in Britain today. As a result Still Waters is now one of the most accomplished, tightly ensembled and creative bands around. A rare chance to see and hear a National Treasure of the UK Jazz scene in his most comfortable setting.


Henry will also be giving a pre gig talk about Miles Davis, the role of his music in his life, the background to how he came to meet Miles on the same tour at which he played at Woodstock, his experience of working with Gil Evans in the early 1980s etc.

Talk starts at 7pm.
