Jim Mullen

With his distictive style Jazz guitarist Jim Mullen is returning with his quartet to Jazz Hastings on Tuesday, November 19.

The gig will take place at the East Hastings Sea Angling Association, on The Stade, and the line-up includes Jim Mullen (guitar), John Donaldson (piano), Mick Hutton (bass), and Dave Barry (drums).

Jim Mullen is a Glasgow-born jazz guitarist with a distinctive style, like Wes Montgomery before him, picking with the thumb rather than a plectrum.

Having played with Brian Auger’s Oblivion Express, appearing on the band’s first three albums together with future Average White Band drummer Robbie MacIntosh, Mullen then joined Kokomo and later toured with the Average White Band.

It was during this time that Mullen met up with tenor saxophone player Dick Morrissey, and throughout the 1980s, he found considerable critical acclaim as joint leader of the pioneering British jazz funk band Morrissey-Mullen.

He has won many British music awards including “Best Guitar” in the British Jazz Awards (1994, 1996, 2000 and 2002).

Doors open at 7.45pm for an 8.30pm start. There is disabled access and tickets are £7 on the door.
