The sound of hard-swinging old style jazz will fill Chipping Norton Theatre next month.

The Dime Notes can be seen on Friday June 23 starting at 7.45pm.

The band features a piano professor, composer, and musicologist from Oregon USA, Andrew Oliver.

He has been described as a specialist in the propulsive grooves and sultry melodies which made early jazz revolutionary, controversial, and wildly popular.

In his band are Chris Barber’s long-time clarinettist David Horniblow, who’s appeared with UK jazz greats Jamie Cullum, Acker Bilk, and Jools Holland. Anchored by the unstoppable pulse of London’s knockout rhythm section, guitarist Dave Kelbie, long time with Evan Christopher’s Django a la Creole, and London-based slap bass specialist Tom Wheatley.

The jazz society of Oregon described the band as laid-back swing and said they had clever interplay which makes their music feel fresh and vibrant.

Meanwhile Just Jazz said that the band’s music Swings from start to finish.

Tickets for the concert cost £15.50. For further details about the concert or to book call the box office on 01608 642350 or visit
