WHAT'S the recipe for a quality night of musical entertainment?

It could be provided by Adrian Ingram's Cookbook in a forthcoming concert!

North Wales Jazz will be showcasing a sensational new band on Wednesday, November 13 as Adrian Ingram's Cookbook, featuring Jon Taylor (sax), heads to the White House, in Rhuallt, where they will be playing some some fiery up-tempo numbers, groove tunes and bluesy ballads.

With the Cookbook, internationally renowned jazz guitarist Adrian Ingram returns to the music that originally inspired him to pick up a guitar as he offers his own take on the organ trio bands of early Grant Green, George Benson and many more.

Widely recognised as one of the foremost authorities on the jazz guitar, Adrian is a renowned player, teacher and author of several books, including 'Wes Montgomery' and 'The Gibson L5: Its History and Players'.

He has accompanied many of the greats of jazz, including Pete King, Jim Mullen, Bobby Wellins and Digby Fairweather, and has performed regularly at New York's Classic American Guitar Show, sharing the main stage with the cream of US jazz guitarists like Jimmy Bruno and Howard Alden.

As an educator, he has taught and performed alongside the legendary Jim Hall at the Hull Jazz Guitar School, and took part in the first ever North Wales Jazz International Jazz Guitar summer school events.

Highly versatile musician Jon Taylor is an accomplished saxophonist, flautist and vocalist, who works both as a soloist and band leader.

His extensive repertoire includes standards from the great American songbook, jazz classics, Latin numbers and blues, as well as original compositions and tunes not usually associated with jazz.

Jon says his aim is to keep it "interesting, stimulating and create a little bit of joy" - exactly the sentiments of the Mike Gordon Trio who accompany him.

On keyboards, Jeremy Platt provides the quartet's driving bass lines in the classic organ style.

A talented multi-instrumentalist, he has worked with an array of musicians from Snake Davis to British jazz stars Jim Mullen and Dennis Rollins, and completing Adrian Ingram's Cookbook is Paul Smith (drums).

The concert starts at 8pm on November 13.

Admission is £8 for adults, £7 concessions, £6 for North Wales Jazz members and £3 for Student Union members and school children.
