Tenor saxophonist Alex Merritt makes his debut at Herts Jazz Club this Sunday, May 15.

His visit is part of a policy by Herts Jazz to provide a platform for younger artists who are at the beginning of their careers in music.

Alex graduated from Birmingham Conservatoire a few years ago and has since picked up work under his own name at Ronnie Scott’s Club, the Brecon Jazz Festival and the London Jazz Festival.

On a national tour promoting his recent CD Anatta, he is joined by John Turville, piano, and Jeff Williams, drums, both tutors at Birmingham, and Sam Lasserson on bass.

The evening at the Hawthorne Theatre, Welwyn Garden City, gets underway at 7.30 pm.

Tickets in advance are £3 students/£8 members/£10 concessions/£11 full.
