The Dime Notes

The Dime Notes dig back into the blues-drenched sounds of clarinet-driven 1920’s New Orleans jazz, unearthing a repertoire of stomps, blueses, and forgotten gems of the era from musicians such as Johnny Dodds, Jelly Roll Morton and Red Nichols.

Fronted by Chris Barber’s long-time clarinetist David Horniblow, an established figure on the London jazz scene and American pianist Andrew Oliver, a recent arrival to the UK, the band is anchored by the unstoppable pulse of London’s finest rhythm guitarist Dave Kelbie.  The bass chair is occupied by Australian born, Paris-based bassist Sebastien Girardot, well known across the international scene for his swing and versatility, or London bassist Tom Wheatley, in demand across many genre boundaries with his huge sound and stylistic versatility.

The Dime Notes present a fresh take on a timeless style, emphasizing the propulsive grooves and sultry melodies which made early jazz revolutionary, controversial, and wildly popular.
