Joel Purnell - saxophonist Peak Jazz, 7th July 2017 @ 8pm

If you've been part of the audience at Chesterfield Jazz Club, you might have seen the wonderful Joel Purnell play his saxophone. It's an unusual saxophone in that Joel has innovated a stand for it instead of the usual neck strap - finding it more comfortable.
