About the Event

Chris Kibble: piano

Phil Scragg: bass

Marc Cecil: drums

Chris Kibble gave the JCUK one of our most joyful gigs in 2023. When we asked him how we should promote the gig, he replied, “Some original tunes and arrangements, should be fun.” That proved to be quite an understatement: what he gave an enthralled audience that day ranged from jazz standards, to bouncing Latin and samba rhythms, to versions of popular hit songs from the likes of Sting and The Police. So, it is with great pleasure that we have invited Chris back for more of the same…

He's joined by bass player Phil Scragg who, at 13, saw someone playing a double bass: “I had to have a go, and it just felt right. Two years later I started serious lessons at school.So that was how I came to play bass and I really don’t know exactly what drew me to it but its attraction has never faded.” Chris and Phil also play together in the band East of Jazz.

The drum seat is filled by Marc Cecil, one of Britain’s most prominent percussionists and jazz educators. As a side man he has a substantial list of credits including Lianne Carroll, Art Themen, Dominic Ashworth, Lily Dior, Geoff Gascoyne, Alan Barnes, Pete Long, Henry Lowther, and Karen Sharp.
