JAZZ trioThree Men On Third are playing at Olney Jazz Club, upstairs at The Bull Inn in Olney on Tuesday night.

TMOT consist of some highly respected professional Jazz musicians: pianist Alan Haughton, drummer John Watson and Richard Exall on the clarinet and saxophone.

Their music is based on the unique sounds of the Gene Krupa Jazz Trio, a musical phenomenon that lasted from the mid-1940s until Gene’s death in 1973.

Many still regard Krupa as one of the most influential drummers of the 20th century.

The reincarnation of Gene’s musical style came about after John and Richard met.

Richard was keen to form a band to play Krupa’s music and knew just the pianist.

Alan then joined, completing the trio and Three Men On Third were born.

Fancy listening to some flamboyant jazz alongside John’s notoriously humorous repartee?

Then head down to The Bull Inn. Tickets are a fiver in advance and £7 on the door, which opens at 8pm.
