THEY performed the first ever jazz concert in Albania in a marble pyramid.
That was in 2000 and 12 years on top pianist Craig Milverton and ace clarinettist Julian Marc Stringle will be in a more traditional jazz setting when they headline an international jazz night at The Concorde on Wednesday.
Craig, a regular at the Stoneham Lane club, is one of Britain’s top jazz piano players.
Two years ago he was voted jazz pianist of the year at the British Jazz Awards.
In 2007 the talented musician joined forces with well known jazz band leader Digby Fairweather and Paul Jones of Manfred Mann and The Blues Band fame.
Sharing The Concorde stage with Craig will be Julian Marc Stringle who was a child prodigy reed player.
Julian, who has also been starring with the new Digby Fairweather Half Dozen, made his TV debut with Acker Bilk when he was just 14.
He has written more than 30 TV jingles and documentary film scores. In Paris he arranged and conducted a big band album for Charles Aznavour.
Julian plays clarinet, alto and tenor saxes and sings.
He was voted best clarinettist at the British Jazz Awards in 2006.
