As good as it gets” – Bebop Spoken Here
"Ceaselessly original and imaginative" - Schmazz website
This band is all about heartfelt improvisation on idiosyncratic tunes that stay with you. The players infuse driving jazz and latin rhythms or ambient swing with their various enthusiasms including folk and rock ballads, free jazz and the dancefloor. Their original material explores unusual meters and structures as vehicles for angular and passionate solos, with narrative melodies resonant enough to evoke a strong sense of place and time.
March 4 - James Birkett and Bradley Johnston Duo
From Eddie Lang, through Django Reinhardt, to Pat Metheny and beyond, the guitar continues to have a universal appeal. James and Bradley present a programme of music by some of the most influential players of the last hundred years taking the audience on a musical journey which moves from early jazz and blues, through swing and bebop, to cool and contemporary jazz.
April 8 – Graham Hardy and Paul Edis Duo
Graham Hardy is an extremely versatile and talented Trumpeter, composer andarranger, well known on the local scene as a sideman in the Sue Ferris Quintet, the Paul Edis Sextet and the Mick Shoulder Quintet as well as leading his own band the Northern Monkey Brass Band.
