Fronted by Chris Barber’s long-time clarinettist David Horniblow, an establishedfigure on the European jazz stage and pianist/composer/ Sam Watts, the bandis anchored by the unstoppable pulse of London’s knockout rhythm section,guitarist Dave Kelbie, accompanist in Evan Christopher’s Django a la Creole,John Etheridge’s Sweet Chorus and bassist Louis Thomas, well known across theinternational scene for his swing and versatility and in demand across many genreboundaries with his huge sound and stylistic versatility.

The Dime Notes present a fresh take on a timeless style, emphasising thepropulsive grooves and sultry melodies which made early jazz revolutionary,controversial, and wildly popular.
