Mike Williams is one of the UK’s most significant alto saxophonists  and a highly revered teacher. Many graduates of Royal Birmingham  Conservatoire’s Jazz courses cite lessons with Mike as among their most  significant landmarks on their journey to becoming a professional jazz  musician. The majority of Mike’s professional life is pedagogical, and  so these rare outings in performance mode are often packed to capacity  with Mike’s former pupils and these events never disappoint. Be sure to  book in advance. Tonight Mike appears with some of his favourite  musicians with whom he has built a musical relationship over many years  including the wonderful guitarist Phil Robson. Mike’s  performance career includes close musical collaborations with Simon  Purcell, Ricardo Dos Santos, Kjell Berglund and Hans Koller in addition  to leading his own bands. Mike has also worked with Gareth  Williams, Kate Williams, the London Jazz Orchestra, Burtil Stranberg,  Mark Edwards, Neil Yates, Gareth Locrane, Simon Thorpe Octet, Paul  Edmonds, Colin Oxley Quintet, Ceri Evans Sextet and recorded with the  Dedication Orchestra and Us3.

Running time approx. two hours and thirty minutes.
