Presenting Andy Schofield “one of the leading British jazz musicians” (The Observer) making a rare visit to the UK from his home of Prague to appear alongside our resident musical-director Jamie Safir for a night of thrilling and invigorating contemporary jazz.
Legendary Alto Saxophonist Andy Schofield, who was featured on the George Michael ‘Symphonica’ tours, will join us at HJC for a special one-off show as part of the London Jazz Festival.
