Seven Jazz Leeds springs into action!

Lots of international stars, and lots of talented Yorkshire bands to see at Seven Jazz’s two venues, Seven Arts and Inkwell Arts in Chapel Allerton in early 2014. 
Firstly, award-winning jazz alto saxophonist and hip hop star Soweto Kinch celebrates the release of his studio double album titled ‘The Legend of Mike Smith’ - the tale of a young MC caught in a very modern world of temptation on January 23 at Seven Arts. Then Canadian Trumpeter Jay Phelps has put together a wonderful Transatlantic sextet to perform the music of Miles Davis in his “Projection of Miles” concert for February 20.  

Leeds based jazz singer Louise Gibbs premiers her new “Seven Deadly Sings” on March 6, a jazz song cycle scored for voice and septet and a star line up of international musicians such as Tony Kofi, Tim Whitehead and Quentin Collins and then the same month on March 20 Jean Toussaint – former sax playing member of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers – returns to Seven Arts leading his own quartet.
Australian tenor sax star Brandon Allen, with his exciting new quartet, is there on April 3 and finally, just before Easter on April 10, the superb duo of saxman Tommy Smith and pianist Brian Kellock make it down from Scotland – just before they close the border!
The funky Sunday afternoons provide good entertainment and good value too with some wonderful new Leeds based bands including bassist Simon Read’s Octet, saxman Robin Porter’s Quartet, fresh from this year’s Proms, the piano trios of Jami Sheriff and Declan Forde, guitarists Jamie Taylor and Gary Boyle, saxman Will Howard’s double drum Quintet, and from London the wonderful young trumpet star Laura Jurd.
To get jazz fans in the mood for Le Grand Depart from Leeds we have a couple of groups that recreate the music of Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt – Ben Lowman’s Django Project and Matt Holborn’s Gypsy Jazz Quartet. And for those who like jazz singers we have welcome returns by Kate Peters and Kevin James!
All this to see and enjoy then.  But if you want to join in too, then there is the highly successful Seven Jazz workshop, improvisation group, the Seven Jazz Voices Choir and the Spring Jazz Café and Jam Session on March 30th!
