Edinburgh Fringe Jazz 2014

The Playtime team, who stage weekly jazz sessions at the Outhouse in Edinburgh, have announced an expansion of activities during the city’s Fringe festival.
Beginning with pianist Dave Milligan on Monday August 4, guests including saxophonist Julian Arguelles, organist and former Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year Pete Johnstone, and bassist Brodie Jarvie will feature in a programme that runs until August 21 in the Outhouse’s congenial, intimate loft.
Situated just round the corner from the city centre terminus of Edinburgh’s new tram system, the Outhouse has proved a popular Fringe jazz venue over the past few years, with American singers Barbara Morrison and Lillian Boutte among those who have enjoyed successful residencies there, and the Playtime series will supplement similar residencies this year with early evening and late-night concerts.
Saxophonist Martin Kershaw, who launched the Playtime sessions with guitarist Graeme Stephen, bassist Mario Caribe and drummer Tom Bancroft as the resident band and who will also be appearing regularly during the Fringe run, said: “The loft is a really good space to play in and it’s allowed the regular team to develop new music as well as inviting people who happen to be in town to come and play. We had a memorable night with some visiting Ghanaian musicians and when one or more of the team can’t appear due to other work commitments, there’s a ready supply of players who are willing to step in and give the Thursday sessions continuity.”
The Fringe series also features Graeme Stephen directing new live soundtracks to silent films Nosferatu and Faust, keyboards player Paul Harrison and drummer Stuart Brown’s jazz-electronica project Herschel 36, and Stephen, trombonist Chris Greive and drummer David Harrison continuing the gleeful deconstruction of Led Zeppelin that Stephen and Greive began with maverick trio NeWt.
