Speakeasy Jazz Club will host the group on Friday and it promises to be quite a night.

Organiser Kate Sheridan said: “We welcome the hugely-talented tenor sax master, Craig Crofton and his superb trio.

“Craig has a reputation for power and excitement in his playing. Anglo-American Craig has a unique sound of his own that really stands out.

“His list of credits is endless, playing alongside many of the jazz greats, including Pee Wee Ellis, Winton Marsalis and Jazz Jamaica, at all the major festivals and clubs, and with James Taylor on the One World Stage, Glastonbury.
