Plays "Ah Um" by Charles Mingus
Played Twice is a monthly event hosted by Brilliant Corners that gives timeless jazz recordings the attention they deserve. In a darkened, quieted room, after a seated playback of a seminal recording on the best vinyl pressing available, a live band of musicians play their interpretation of the music. For this session, we've chosen Charles Mingus' Ah Um. After the playback, band leader and bassist Mark Lewandowski, working alongside trumpeter and Played Twice co-curator Quentin Collins, will play their interpretation of the compositions contained in the record. The band itself will be as follows: Mark Lewandowski (double bass) Nathaniel Facey (alto sax) Alex Garnett (tenor sax) Nathaniel Cross (trombone) Quentin Collins (trumper) Liam Noble (piano); and James Maddren (drums).

Alex Garnett's "Bunch Of Fives" w New York Standards Quartet
The New York Standards Quartet (NYSQ) is made up of pianist David Berkman, drummer Gene Jackson, saxophonist Tim Armacost, and double bassist Michael Janisch. As a band, the New York-based unit have developed a near telepathic relationship playing together in a variety of settings since their formation in 2006. Conceptually, the NYSQ strives to develop its own language within the tradition of performing standard jazz repertoire. 'a collective class act.' (The Guardian)
Alex Garnett presents the debut PizzaExpress performance of his new band Bunch of Five. The quintet brings the classic duelling saxophone format into a contemporary context, giving it a fresh face without losing its gladiatorial edge. The two frontmen, Garnett and the NYC-based Tim Armacost join forces and expand upon their mutual admiration, and their individual sound, phrasing and approach to playing the saxophone complement each other greatly while at the same time pushing each other to their improvisational limits. Rounding out the group is a versatile rhythm section featuring UK pianist Liam Noble, American bassist Michael Janisch, and one of London's in demand young drummers, James Maddren.
