Pianist for Sir John Dankworth - and accompanist for Dame Cleo Laine for 20 years - John Horler has performed with the leading lights of modern jazz over his illustrious career including; Pete King, Art Farmer, Zoot Sims, Maynard Ferguson, Ronnie Ross, Kenny Wheeler, Tommy Whittle and Tony Coe; not to mention Chet Baker when he appeared at The Canteen in the 80s. 

Horler recognises Evans as the most influential figure in his playing, a jazz language which embraces Debussy, Ravel and Brahms; constantly surprising and inspiring him throughout his long career.

Horler does what only the very best can do: he creates a version that is completely his own while also conveying the essence of the original.
