The Godfather- print this page for an OFFER you can’t refuse.

There may be many Godfathers* (a particularly menacing one above) , but in British jazz there is just one, a unique presence, a : Stan Tracey CBE , aka the Godfather of British jazz.

Tracey’s endlessly inventive, free-wheeling piano playing is unique. What always draws me in is his humour and his timing. Why can’t I listen to Tracey without my face breaking into a smile, or even a chuckle?

Sonny Rollins once asked a crowd at Ronnie Scott’s : “Does anybody here know how good [Stan Tracey] really is?”

Here’s a nice chance to catch the Stan Tracey trio – with Clark Tracey and Andy Cleyndert – in a club setting before his headline appearance at The Proms. It’s at the 606 Club next Thursday 18th.
Here’s the OFFER: Print out this page and there will be a £2 of the fixed charge per person, and 10% off your drinks.
Bookings 020 7352 5953.
