DAVE GREEN had established himself as a major figure by the end of the 60s having worked with musicians as diverse as Stan Tracey and Humphrey Lyttelton. He also played and recorded with many front-rank visiting Americans who counted themselves fortunate in having his solidity and flair behind them. Throughout the 80s and into the following decades, Green remained at the forefront of British jazz, working with Peter King, Didier Lockwood, Spike Robinson and a host of other British and visiting jazzmen. A superb timekeeper and exceptional soloist, Green is the essence of the international jazz musician.

STU BUTTERFIELD has been a well established and highly regarded drummer on the UK scene since the late sixties. Throughout the past ten years, he has been back with a vengeance performing in a variety of groups and as a regular at Jazz at Karamel!

Karamel Restaurant March 1st

Dorance Lorza & Sexteto Cafe have been one of the leading bands in the vibrant and exciting London salsa scene since they formed in 1996. Pioneering the worldwide “salsa con vibes” revival of the late 1990s, they were one of the first bands in Europe to favour the small combo salsa sound of 1960s/1970s bands like Joe Cuba Sextet/ New Swing Sextet/Pete Terrace Combo rather than that of the more common big brass-heavy salsa orchestras of the day.

Over the years, they have become one of the most popular and booked salsa bands in the UK and have been featured at many prestigious salsa congresses and jazz festivals .

Tickets are £12 OTD/£10 limited early bird tickets from www.karamel.london

This Thursday, 7th April, multi-award winning Alan Barnes performs alongside some of his favourite musicians and peers. Joining Alan is established and longtime pianist John Critchinson, established bassist Dave Green and Stu Butterfield on drums.

A prolific international performer, composer, arranger, bandleader and touring soloist – we can’t wait to see what Alan brings to our Jazz at Karamel nights. Best known for his work on clarinet, alto and baritone sax, his unique musicianship, indefatigable touring, and warm rapport with audiences have made him uniquely popular in British jazz. He has received over 25 British Jazz Awards, most recently in 2014 for clarinet, and has twice been made BBC Jazz Musician of the Year.

“Barnes, plays music that was radical 50 years ago – hard, urban post-bop – but he infuses it with so much passion and energy you could believe it was minted on the spot, which is always part of the story with jazz.” – John L Waters – The Guardian

Now this truly is the time to see such highly acclaimed musician as Alan Barnes here at Karamel.

With such a prestigious musical history, we are honoured to welcome Alan back. He is also currently president of the well-attended Swanage Jazz Festival.

Alan studied saxophone, woodwinds and arranging at the Leeds College of music from 1977-80.

In 1980 he moved to London, playing with the Midnight Follies Orchestra and the following year was with the Pasadena Roof Orchestra, touring Europe until 1983. In that year he left to join the hard bop band of Tommy Chase where he attracted considerable attention on the UK jazz scene for the first time.

He left Chase in 1986 to co-lead The Jazz Renegades with rock drummer Steve White travelling as far afield as Japan and recording four well received albums. In 1988 Alan was asked to fill the chair recently vacated by Bruce Turner in the Humphrey Lyttelton band where he stayed until 1992. 1987-97 he also found time to lead the Pizza Express Modern Jazz Sextet with Gerard Presencer and Dave O’Higgins. Since leaving the Lyttelton band, Alan has concentrated on his freelance career.

Alan has enjoyed a prolific career as a sideman, playing and recording for many bands. He broadcast regularly over a ten-year period with the BBC Big Band and Radio Orchestra and has toured and recorded with big band leaders, Dick Walter, Kenny Baker, Bob Wilber, Don Weller, Stan Tracey, Mike Westbrook and John Dankworth. Other bands he has toured and recorded with include the Tina May Trio, Bill LeSage’s Genetically Modified Quintet, Spike Robinson’s Tenor Madness, Clare Teale, and a sextet with Don Weller playing the music of Cannonball Adderley. Alan has also toured the U.K. with Freddie Hubbard. Alan has long associations with pianist David Newton, going back to their college days, and with blistering be-bop trumpeter Bruce Adams, with whom he has co-led a quintet since the early nineties.

Alan has been featured on many jazz recordings from his first record date as co-leader in 1985 with Tommy Whittle and as leader of his own quartet in 1987 right up to recent record dates with Scott Hamilton, Warren Vache and Harry Allen and most recently a duo album with Martin Taylor. He has appeared on the Concord (with Conti Condoli), Fret, Miles Music, Nagel Hayer and Specific labels with various projects. He now runs his own Woodville label.

Friday 8th April 2016 see our successful monthly "Gabriel Moreno & Frank Hutson Presents" turn the focus on female performers.

Artists confirmed to play so far:

  • Gitta de Ridder will host and play
  • Echo Wants Her Voice Back will headline the event (Eleni Skarpari)
  • Catherine Rudie will grace us with her voice and modern tunes
  • Madelaine Smith will enchant
  • Gabi Garbutt will show us what it means to find a unique and uncompromisingly strong musical identity and voice
  • Emma Skemp will play heavenly flute
  • Penny Dyer & Lana will add classical class
  • Hattie Marsh will poison us :) (see her video below)
  • Annie and I will kill us with poetry
  • Kirsty Allison will resurrect us


Gabriel speaks from the heart, see below:

We are passing over our Gabriel and Frank's monthly music and poetry night to female musicians and poets in the music scene. Because there is too much testosterone in the folk/americana/country/blues and jazz scene, because we think the future is not a male patriach power based tough and emotionless turd affair, because we love the voices and songs of our wondrous female artists and because we celebrate womanhood. If you want to perform, send us a message. Night begins at 8pm as usual. The wondrous Gitta de Rider will be hosting this event organised by female singer songwriters too. We are just helping to spread the word. There will be lush vegan food available and all are welcome. xxx

Frank steps in with facts and figures courtesy of The Association of Independent Music:

'Despite notable female successes in the music industry, research has made it clear that we still have a long way to go before we have gender equality.

61% of those working in the music industry are male*
In areas such as management, promotion and the live sector this imbalance increases, with only 30% of the workforce being female**

Research conducted by the Cultural Leadership Programme found that male leaders in the creative industries outnumbered female leaders by two and a half to one in 2009

Women working within the music industry are more likely to have a level 4, or higher, qualification than their male counterparts, but despite this 47% of women working in music earn less than £10,000 per year (compared to 35% of men).**
