Felpham Memorial Village Hall
ENRICO TOMASSO (Trumpet) & ROBERT FOWLER (Saxophone)
with the Gareth Williams Trio
CELEBRATING JEROME KERN
Both Enrico and Robert spent many years with the Pasadena Roof Orchestra with whom they toured Europe, the U.S.A. and Far East.
Enrico, winner of the 2016 British Jazz award for trumpet, is no stranger to “Jazz at the Village”.
He started playing the trumpet at age 5 and was encouraged by his father Ernie, himself a great saxophonist, who introduced him to Benny Goodman, Oscar Peterson and his personal idol Louis Armstrong.
Robert too, has quite an impressive C.V. having played with many of the U.K.’s leading Big Bands and artists including the B.B.C. Big Band, Syd Lawrence, Back to Basie, Chris Barber, Kenny Ball and Bryan Ferry. If you have been fortunate to hear him, you will know that he is a very versatile saxophonist producing a great sound in many ways similar to that of the great players in the 40’s and 50’s.
Paying us a return visit and leading the rhythm section will be piano virtuoso Gareth Williams.
