Retro Chet Quartet
Entry Requirements: Under 18s to be accompanied by an appropriate adult
Featuring Geoff Varrall, trumpet, Caroline Cooper, piano, Peter Miles, drums and Clive Brown, bass. Geoff Varrall and his group recapture the sound and spirit of Chet Baker in his later years and revisit some of his earlier work. On June 14th 1987 Chet Baker played a final concert in Tokyo which became one of the last times he recorded professionally before his untimely death. He was accompanied by an accomplished Dutch bassist, Hein Van Der Geyn, US pianist Harold Danko and drummer John Engels. The group tonight will pay homage to this performance and group drawing upon the repertoire of standards performed by Chet and his group thirty years ago.
