Policy Statement

This event is being organised by a local committee of musicians and jazz fans.

Our aim is to promote jazz on the Isle of Wight. Members of the committee will not receive any financial reward. Inspected accounts will be made available on request.

The committee will cover the cost of the main venues and headline acts. This will be funded by sponsorship, ticket sales and other fund-raising activities.

Any subsequent profits will go towards funding future events.

We will encourage other performances during the period. However, we will not act as agents. It will be the responsibility of the performers and venues to negotiate between themselves.

Picante

PicantePicante is a hugely enjoyable Latin band fronted by Derek Nash (featured saxophonist with the Jools Holland R&B Orchestra and Sax Appeal) and Dominic Ashworth (British Jazz award-winning guitarist).

Taking Latin flavours from Buena Vista Social Club, Sergio Mendes, Stan Getz/Astrid Gilberto, Spyrogyra and the Gypsy Kings, Picante’s music makes you feel like dancing from the first bar with their unique compositions in mambo, salsa, samba and bossa nova styles.

Music from their CD – Five Note Salsa - has already been heard on TV from Japanese Drama to Strictly Come Dancing to the David Letterman Show.

Derek Nash – baritone, tenor, alto & soprano sax, Dominic Ashworth – guitar, Neil Angilley - piano, Andy Staples – double bass, Marc Cecil - drums, Robin Jones – percussion

Watch Picante play at Annie's Jazz Club
