Don's music career started when he played Mozart's clarinet concerto in the Fairfield Hall, Croydon as a fourteen year old. He went on to take up tenor saxophone, with lessons from Kathy Stobart and formed his now almost legendary group "Major Surgery" which ran for nine years playing his own compositions.“Weller’s stage presence and the world-class power and fluency of his sax-playing has been part of his enduring charm over three decades on the British jazz scene” - John Fordham, The Guardian. “He imitates nobody yet swings as hard and plays as soulfully, inventively and, if necessary, as devastatingly fast as any American icon could” - Jack Massarik, London Evening Standard. On piano this evening a true colossus of the keyboard, the great Steve Melling. “Melling is one of the most comprehensively gifted of pianists, with a great technique and an abundance of ideas. He is also a great composer” - Ian Carr, Jazz the Rough Guide Vol 2.
