Cafe Bar Jazz Night: Shenoy/Dunn Duo
Our monthly jazz evenings, presented in conjunction with Winchester Jazz Festival.
Clarinet & Guitar Duo playing original and sophisticated arrangements from the American Songbook.
Jon Shenoy is a saxophonist, clarinettist and composer/arranger living in South London. A talented improviser and creative spirit, he plays a wide range of music and leads a number of celebrated ensembles.
Somewhat a stylistic chameleon, he balances a prolific contribution towards the contemporary sounds of the London jazz scene in the Ivo Neame Octet, Rory Simmons’ Fringe Magnetic, Arthur Lea’s Bootleg Brass, & his own hammond organ quartet, Draw By Four.
As a sought-after woodwind specialist he brings a stylistic awareness of pastiche and sensitivity to the likes of Claire Martin’s Hollywood Romance, the Heritage Orchestra, and his own King Candy & The Sugar Push. Recent concerts include the North Sea Jazz Festival and repeated sell-out shows at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club.
“Jon Shenoy is without doubt a hidden gem. A unique multi-instrumentalist, he plays with sophistication, heart and soul and is equally eloquent on each. Jon’s compositions are intelligent and classy and I’ve very much enjoyed singing his wonderful arrangements which display a natural understanding of harmony and are deeply tender. Whether writing for strings or playing a soaring saxophone solo, Jon is an astonishingly gifted musician who is an asset to any ensemble."
