How much: £11.00 (YP/Stu £5.00)

Alan Skidmore, tenor saxophone; Steve Melling, piano; Andy Cleyndert, bass; Miles Levin, drums

You name the musician and the odds are that Alan Skidmore has played with them: Herbie Hancock, Stan Tracey, Van Morrison, John Mayall, Georgie Fame, Elvin Jones and so on. One of the best British saxophonists ever, his virtuoso, life-affirming tenor sax playing has lit up many an evening whatever the context. But Skid, as he is affectionately known, is probably best known for his stunning interpretations of John Coltrane tunes. Give your ears a treat.
