Nigel Price/Alban Claret Quartet

Highams Park Jazz Club is proud to start jazz sessions once a month on Saturday nights with Nigel Price/Alban Claret Quartet. This is the first band we will be hosting without a jam session. As this will be our first jazz band at our club on Saturday night, it is very important for us. Please support us as we are a new little local jazz club trying to support jazz musicians and our community.

Join us in making history as we present this exceptional quartet, and help us establish a vibrant jazz tradition at our club. Secure your tickets promptly, as we anticipate high demand for this fantastic concert. Limited seats are available, so ensure your spot by purchasing your tickets in advance, as we cannot guarantee seating for door purchases.

Experience the musical synergy of two of London’s finest guitarists as they present the enchanting melodies from their latest album, “Entente Cordiale.” British jazz legend Nigel Price and French sensation Alban Claret, both renowned for their exceptional skills on the London jazz scene, will be performing with their new quartet at the Highams Park Jazz Club on Saturday, 16th March at 20:30.

The evening will be filled with the captivating sounds of their new album, ‘Entente Cordiale.’ According to JazzViews, “The new album is a celebration of great jazz compositions brought to life through Price and Claret’s guitars, backed by their dynamic quartet. Entente Cordiale is an album that plays across a choice menu of jazz compositions and makes them sound as if they were all written for the guitar.”

Nigel Price, an award-winning jazz guitarist with a career spanning over 25 years, is known for his flowing bebop lines, deep blues sensibility, and mastery of chording. Highlights of his career include a support show for Gladys Knight at The Royal Albert Hall and an appearance on Van Morrison’s recent album Keep Me Singing.

Alban Claret, hailing from Perpignan, France, is a guitarist with an extensive musical education from prestigious institutions such as the Conservatoire of Montpellier, the Conservatoire of Perpignan, and the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague. Since relocating to London in 2017, he has become a sought-after musician, gracing stages in numerous jazz clubs across London and the UK.
