Kasseldown at Sproggits..
It's difficult not to get blasé about the Leeds jazz scene these days - it is just SO good. SPROGGITS is yet another funky jazz venue, a monthly night of new work, improvised music and jazz from young improvisers and composers (predominately) based in Leeds. It’s fun. And very busy if tonight's gig is anything to go by with Harry Orme's lovely new quintet "Kasseldown" and the highly talented young guitarist Loretz Bloom and his trio. There are two bands on every gig, normally one playing an improvised set and one playing some new composed music. You can sit on the floor and listen, or sit on a chair if you like. Run by Declan Forde, one of the nicest guys in the business. There’s good cheap beer and it’s in the very hip Wharf Chambers, 23-25 Wharf Street, Leeds, LS2 7GQ, the former Commonplace venue, or next to where Wharf Street Cafe used to be for those even longer in the tooth. £4/3 (conc.) and a bonkers raffle, in the great jazz tradition. Doors at 8pm.
