SHERLOCK JR. – 100th Anniversary


To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the classic Keaton film ‘Sherlock Jr.’, we present this very special event that will see the Buster Plays Buster jazz quartet entertain us with some jazz standards from the best exponents of the art in history, followed by a unique screening of the hilarious silent film accompanied by the talented quartet.



- TRIBUTE TO THE GREATS

In the first part of the evening, drummer Buster Birch's well-knit band - Jo Fooks (saxophone), Neil Casey (piano) and Pete Ringrose (bass) - perform a live "tribute to the greats" which includes some jazz standards by the likes of Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Charles Mingus and Bill Evans, performed along to some short movies created especially for the music. 50min.

There will be a 30-minute interval (the bar is open!) followed by:


- SHERLOCK JR.

A film projectionist (Buster Keaton) longs to be a detective and puts his meagre skills to work when he is framed by a rival for stealing his girlfriend's father's pocket-watch.


Keaton gives us a never-ending stream of amazing and entertaining sights - coming faster and faster as the film proceeds. The Buster Birch Quartet will perform jazz standards live to the screening. The music is arranged for the group, scored out and sync'd to the movie and also features plenty of improvised solos from the musicians. As the comic melodrama unfolds the band adroitly accompanies each scene with well-chosen jazz tunes and popular songs - 'Killer Joe', 'Sidewinder', 'My One and Only Love', 'Salt Peanuts' and so on.
