OAKWORTH will play host to renowned jazzmen Ian Miller and Dominic Spencer.

The concert promises beautiful soaring magic and warm, intelligent, reflective, human music from the saxophonist and pianist.

The Scots duo are playing their Jazz in the Village show at Oakworth Village Hall, formerly Holden Hall, on Friday October 11 from 8pm.

A spokesman said: “Ian and Dominic have been performing together for a number of years playing melodic improvisations on jazz standards and original compositions.

“Their style of jazz concentrates on developing melodic ideas within the framework of the melody of a tune, whilst maintaining the concept and groove behind it.

“The result is a very accessible melodic style which allows them to explore, improvise and develop ideas without losing the essence of each piece of music, and to interact together in as creative a way as possible.”

Ian and Dominic have had enormous success over many years during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with their successful show Jazz at Lunchtime.

The show is often a sell-out, with audience members returning from across the world year after year.

Ian and Dominic have embarked on many rural tours as Jazz in the Village, performing in intimate settings to appreciative audiences.

The beautiful Scottish scenery that they have seen on their travels has inspired the writing of many pieces of music by Ian.

They have played the main jazz festivals in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Fife, as well as the Bath and Buxton fringe festivals and the Callander Jazz Festival.

One reviewer said: “Ian Millar’s own composition Morning Dew opened the performance, its lovely sinuous melody ranging freely from the heights to the depths of the tenor sax voice.”

Another reviewer praised the “splendidly relaxed jazz styling” and unique music with its own special flavour.
