JAZZ TRIO

Clarinet Goes to Town

Together with John Lenehan, piano and Paul Clarvis, drums, Emma explores the roots of jazz whilst paying tribute to some of the greatest clarinettists of all time – Sidney Bechet, Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw.

“This is a fabulous experience, a trio par excellence – ebullient, reflective, historical and unquestionably uplifting. Quite brilliant”
– Philip Dukes, Artistic Director, Marlborough Concert Series 2015

“I would give it more than five stars were it possible!”
“A delightful evening! Wonderful musicianship and such enthusiasm and joy in playing”
“We had a terrific time. Emma Johnson’s performance was sparkling in every way. The mix of informative contextual history and consummate performances from all three musicians was unforgettable.”
“Five stars, a really excellent concert, one of the best we have ever been to.”
– Audience feedback comments after the trio’s debut performance in St George’s Bristol 2015
