For a lunchtime concert of fun, entertainment and brilliant music, the outstanding pianist Keith Nichols, specialising in older piano playing styles and especially stride and ragtime, returns to PizzaExpress Jazz Club. His narrated programme - Jazz Masters Of New Orleans, takes a look at the great instrumentalists and singers from the Crescent City: from Buddy Bolden,  Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet and Jelly Roll Morton, through to later jazz ambassadors Wingy Manone and Louis Prima. Keith is joined by the much-loved trumpeter Enrico Tomasso and versatile banjo-guitarist Martin Wheatley.
