Dreams are Free (2013, Gary Barber)

Large wellins

In 2016 we lost one of our greatest modern tenor saxophonists, the wonderful Bobby Wellins. Bobby was a great friend of the Herts Jazz Club and played there many times. In tribute to this warm and generous player, we are giving a rare screening of this insightful documentary by Gary Barber. The film traces Bobby's life growing up in Glasgow, his contribution to the recording of one of the greatest British jazz albums, 'Under Milk Wood' with Stan Tracey, his wilderness years caused by drug and alcohol addiction, and his resurgence as one of the most loved and respected of UK saxophonists. This is a fitting celebration of a talented musician, composer and great storyteller.
