AN IMPRESSIVE line up of musicians will perform in Lyme Regis next weekend.

Dave Holdsworth’s New Brew will play the Marine Theatre on Sunday, July 28 at 8pm.

Trumpeter Dave has graced several key jazz recordings over the years and has been a long time collaborator with legendary composer Mike Westbrook, appearing on Mike’s debut album Celebration in 1967.

Dave formed "New Brew" with an impressive line up of musicians: Alan Wakeman and Roz Harding saxophones, Marcus Vergette on bass and Coach York on drums. Their first album is called Wodgi.

The music is reminiscent of Ornette Coleman’s group with Don Cherry in the 1960s, with open harmonies and strong, singing melodies over a bubbling rhythmic base.

The themes have strong echoes of South African and Caribbean jazz, and the music is a springboard for group interplay.
