A SWINGING, melodic outfit of phenomenal pedigree is set for Rhuallt.

The Munch Manship Quartet will head to the White House for another instalment of North Wales Jazz this month.

A renowned saxophonist and flautist, Munch Manship originated from the North East and moved to London in the early 1970s before establishing himself in Manchester as one of the foremost players in the region.

Across an illustrious career he has played with artists including Johnny Mathis, Shirley Bassey and Roy Orbison, while his orchestral and TV credits include working with Ronnie Hazlehurst, Alyn Ainsworth, Sir Charles Groves, the BBC Radio Big Band, the Granada TV Orchestra - performing at many BAFTA awards ceremonies - the Liverpool Philharmonic and the Halle Orchestra.

​Joining Manship is Paul Kilvington on keys and Dave Lynane on double bass, while Dave Hassell will bring forty years of experience on drums and percussion into the mix.

Together, the quartet will present a varied programme showcasing everything from the sounds of hard bop bands of the 50s and 60s as well as some choice ballads and Latin numbers.

To join Manship and the band, head to the White House on Wednesday, June 19 at 8pm.

Tickets are £8, with concessions available, call 01745 812260.
