ALI AFFLECK'S GIN MILL GENIES

It’s a warm welcome back this week to Scotland’s leading exponent of early jazz, Ali Affleck. Representing the pioneers of early music and particularly its forgotten heroines, Ali's fresh interpretations breathe new life into old school jazz.
With a mix of piano-centred prohibition era blues, gospel and jazz, Ali’s repertoire ranges from the saucy and fun to the dark and sinister and all performed by a stellar band featuring Colin Steele, trumpet, Steve Hamilton, piano, Roy Percy, bass and Max Popp, drums. What a line-up, and what a night in store...
