This Friday at Brighton blue note, Hove actually we have great tenor sax player Richard Beesley playing a wide mix of jazz with the house band.Since he graduated from London’s Guildhall School of Music, Richard has gone on to become one of London’s most versatile session players. He has recorded and played with diverse artists such as Michael Buble, Mark Ronson, Madness, Kyle Eastowood, Rebecca Ferguson, Dionne Bromfield, Candi Staton, Suzie Quattro, Tony Hadley, Kevin Rowland, Adriana Evans and Leroy Hutson. He has also toured with many soul legends such as The Funk Brothers, The Stylistics, James Ingram, Deniece Williams, Freda Payne, The Supremes, The Three Degrees, Ashford and Simpson, Martha Reeves, Peabo Bryson and The Temptations. Around London Richard plays with top funk outfits “Dotfunk”, and the PB Underground with the Hit Horns, and regularly plays with newly formed world music group “Bansangu Orchestra”.
Richard’s an outstanding musician and as most of his work is in London playing with all these outfits, it’s a rare treat to see him in Brighton in a quartet setting playing a selection of choice jazz standards including Wayne Shorter tunes and more! Rhythm section to be confirmed but I’ll be on guitar. Brighton blue note, 63 church rd hove from 8pm bands , we’re on 11pm….. Free entry all night, open tip 4 am
