THE sound of New Orleans jazz will rock Harwich's Electric Palace when George 'Kid' Tidiman's Jazz Band come to town.

Now in his 70s, George is still swinging with the best.

The 'Kid' is an homage to Kid Ory - the first great New Orleans trombonist. His career spanned six decades and he hired some of the greatest jazz musicians alive, including Louis Armstrong.

George's six-piece features Denny Illet on trumpet, Tim Huskisson on clarinet, Southend Bob on banjo, Trefor Williams on double bass and drummer Bill Finch.

They will be joined on stage by special guest star Cody Lee, on keyboards.

Tickets for tomorrow night's show are £9 plus membership. The concert starts at 8pm.
