Mike Garrick gigs

Legendary British jazz pianist/composer Mike Garrick is playing a couple of gigs in London over the next month. Garrick is arguably one of Britain's finest jazz pianists and composers and was one of the leading players in the 1960s British modern jazz scene. He was born in Enfield in 1933 and formed his first modern jazz quartet in 1959. Garrick recorded a number of albums throughout the 60s and 70s, including several with Joe Harriott - and one of Garrick's recent projects was a performance of Harriott pieces arranged for big band by Garrick himself.
