Nigel Price Organ Trio with guest saxman Vasilis Xenopoulos - “Wes Reimagined”. Nigel Price is one of the UK’s leading jazz guitarists and a tireless supporter of live music, so it is with great pleasure that we welcome him back, leading his Organ Trio plus saxman Vasilis Xenopoulos in an evening of tunes made famous by the legendary guitarist Wes Montgomery.

Adrian Knowles and “Sound of 59”. It’s a warm JazzLeeds welcome back to this Leeds based group led by bassist Adrian Knowles that were such a hit at last year’s JazzLeeds Festival. They celebrate a pivotal year in jazz history. 1959 was special – it saw the release of classic jazz albums by Charlie Mingus, Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck, John Coltrane and many others. “Sounds of 59”, led by bassist Adrian Knowles and featuring some of the best of jazz musicians from Leeds, recreate the music with both music and visual displays.
