Josephine Davis “Satori” - Satori is a Coltrane-inspired spiritual jazz trio with a focus on melodic freedom and band interaction led by saxophonist and composer Josephine Davies who won Jazz Instrumentalist of the Year in the 2019 Parliamentary Jazz Awards. Their 2017 debut album attracted wide critical acclaim in the UK and Europe while their 2018 follow up ‘In The Corners Of Clouds’received equally glowing reviews

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.

We’ve also got our regular Sunday afternoon gigs of course – blues and boogie pianist Henry Botham is the guest this Sunday 25 Oct at 1.30pm at Seven Arts.
