Village Jazz Festival 30 Aug-2 Sept 2018 Chapel Allerton

(Press release)
The ever popular Village Jazz Festival in Chapel Allerton Leeds returns this week - running from Thursday 30 August through to Sunday 2 September with venues throughout Chapel Allerton and featuring the usual entertaining and eclectic mix of jazz, blues and salsa – something for all tastes! Mostly Leeds based bands, representing the amazing breadth of the local jazz scene, and with the headline international jazz star Julian Argüelles starting off his UK tour at Seven Arts.

The festival starts with the Big Easy swing band on the Thursday 30 August featuring the swing music of the 20’s and 30’s with the greatest tunes by the giants of swing; Louis Armstrong, Louis Prima, Nina Simone and many more household names, added their own interesting arrangements to bring you a set of the finest swing tunes (at Seven Arts 8pm). Support is from jazz songstress Emily Brown with her quartet.

On Friday evening we feature Leeds pianist Chris Lloyd and his trio playing homage to Oscar Peterson “Lloyd Plays Peterson” (7.30-8.30pm) followed by a Jazz Jam session (9-10pm) at the School of Philosophy 64 Woodland Ln, Leeds LS7 4PD - this is a new venue, immediately behind the main festival stage (31 Aug 7.30-10pm). You are welcome to come and join in the jazz jam session just bring yourself, your voice, your instrument and your tunes you want to play. There will be a jazz trio there to support you led by Chris Bland on piano.

On Saturday 1 Sept during the afternoon, we have a free performance by Alice Higgins and "Tiptoe" in the bar at Seven Arts 3-4pm

The headline festival act @Seven Arts on Saturday 1 Sept 8pm is the Julian Argüelles Quartet led by saxophonist, composer and Loose Tubes alumnus Julian Argüelles. Julian joins up with some of the UK’s leading younger jazz musicians in the form of Ivo Neame on piano and the powerful bass and drums duo of Sam Lasserson and James Maddren, displaying Argüelles’ consistent talent for freewheeling jazz ventures packed with striking compositions. Neame is a fluently inventive pianist. This is a jazz group to the core, yet it is full of non-jazz surprises! Julian will be taking a jazz masterclass at Seven Arts (5.30-6.30pm) – some along and listen!

The Sunday afternoon open-air concert of jazz blues and salsa bands in Regent Street 12.00-6pm will get you dancing! It includes Nick Svarc’s blues band “Who Knows” and popular soul jazz band “Atlantic Crossover”, Sueli Gil’s Africa- Brasil, local big band the North Leeds Jazz Orchestra and Leeds wacky answer to Sun Ra – the Ancient Infinity Orchestra
