Back in 2011, Alan Brown recorded his debut solo album 'Between The Spaces' to strong reviews. Drawing upon Alan's varied influences of classical, rock and jazz, 'Between The Spaces' was an exploration in rhythm and form. The musical inventiveness brought by the younger players of the group provided another fresh and exciting dimension to the music.

It's been a while since Alan Brown performed with his quartet at CJC, so this night will be chance to revisit and reimagine the Between The Spaces material, and bring some new, as yet unrecorded, original pieces.

Alan will be joined by Jono Sawyer on drums, guitarist Andy Smith, with David Hodkinson on bass.

"In Alan Brown we have...a compositional flavour that, at its best, makes for some quietly captivating listening" reviewer Gary Steel.
