An all-star cast closes Buxton International Festival’s opening jazz weekend, fronted by one of the world’s leading New Orleans clarinettists Adrian Cox.

He’ll be playing alongside guest-singer Tommy Blaize, from BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing and a string quartet led by the hugely respected Gabriella Swallow.

Expect an evening of the highest quality musicianship with some of the most loved figures on the jazz scene. The show features music composed by Cox, as he introduces his new project Clarinet Fantasy, inspired by clarinettist Barney Bigard's 1940s album Fantasy for Clarinet.
