Michael OffordLive on Stage

Thursday October 12, 2017

Sammy Rimington is one of the leading exponents of New Orleans revival jazz. He came to prominence with Ken Colyer’s Jazzmen and has since performed and recorded with almost all the legends of jazz. He can be heard on nearly 300 recordings. His International Band numbers leading musicians from the Netherlands and Belgium as well as the UK. The New York Times said: “Sammy Rimington’s playing demonstrates the clarinet’s matchless range of funky virtuosity, which makes jazz’s past as real as the future.”
