Oh my… The Art Themen Quartet! Art Themen was involved in the traditional jazz scene in Manchester in the late 1950s. A member of the award-winning Cambridge University jazz band from 1958 to 1961, he became involved in the early London blues scene, playing alongside Alexis Korner, Jack Bruce, Mick Jagger and Chuck Berry. He fronted the Stan Tracey Quartet for 20 years from 1976. Key influences are Sonny Rollins and Dexter Gordon. Themen has toured worldwide and played and recorded with many US and British luminaries.
