Stan Tracey’s ‘Under Milk Wood’ suite will be performed in St Albans next weekend.
As part of a two-day tour – the previous night they are in Newcastle – Simon Allen (reeds), Bruce Boardman (piano), Andrew Cleyndert (bass), Clark Tracey (drums), and Ben Tracey (Narrator) will perform Stan’s setting of Dylan Thomas’ famous work at the Maltings Theatre on Sunday, December 5 at 7.30pm.
With narration by Stan’s grandson Ben Tracey, the quartet – led by his Stan's son Clark – reproduces this magical milestone of British jazz in the second half of the evening.
The first half will be a performance of A Child’s Christmas, also by Dylan Thomas, composed by Stan in his later years as a follow up.
