Alan Barnes & Matt Sulzman

At Twickenham Jazz Club's Stage

Alan Barnes

To spend an evening with him is to be transported to a timeless place of incredible musicality, reassuring humour, and companionship that melts away life’s trials and tribulations just for a while. Nicknamed by the late great Humphrey Lyttleton as ‘Honorary Crackpot,’ Alan’s musical discography is legendary.

He has received over 25 British Jazz awards, has played with and is highly respected by many of our contemporary Jazz greats, and has also performed and recorded commercially with household names like Bjork, Bryan Ferry, Michel LeGrande, Clare Teale, Westlife, and Jools Holland.

Yet, although he is an incredibly accomplished multi-instrumentalist, Alan remains one of the most engaging and unassuming people I know. Perhaps it is his tough Northern roots, or perhaps it is simply because when you are so gifted, the ego is redundant and you simply play.

Matt Sulzman

One of these players is his son Matthew or should I say Matt, who grew up absorbing his father’s experiences, mixing with some of the finest musicians and also learning to play the saxophone from some of the greatest teachers. For a gifted child, this is a wonderful start.

Matt developed into an outstanding soprano and alto saxophonist, arranger and composer. He now leads his own quintet and has performed with the Neon Orchestra, Dom Ingram Sextet, James Brady’s ‘Voyagers’ and the London Jazz Orchestra. In addition, his keen interest in education has led him to teach on Jazz courses including NYJC, Mehr Clef, NYJOS, Ronnie Scott’s “Big Band in a Day”, and Jazz Rehearsals London, in addition to his work at Brentwood and Abercorn schools.
