A quick 'how do' at Tessa's website and blog immediately reveals what a busy young lady she is including significant charity work and buoying the community bon homie in general. Have a quick Youtube will yield some great recent clips of Tessa's Quintet at Seven in Leeds where I have very reliable reports of much fun and frolics abroad, so do join us at JATP for even more. A great night beckons I reckons.

02 May 2014 - JJ WHEELER QUINTET
Enforced by life threatening and debilitating illness, JJ had to adjourn his MA at RAM in 2012, but tough as old boots and single-minded as ever, JJ returned to RAM in Sept 2013 and is back in London 'jazzing' with a vengeance to great acclaim. So it was with exquisite pleasure and relief that I re-arranged JJ's planned 2012 gig at JATPjazz. Again catching the eyes and ears of London's Jazz cognoscenti do come along to see what all the fuss is about and catch some stunning updating of bebop and hard bop with delightful injections of Radiohead and even Genesis.

06 June 2014 - RICHARD ILES' MICROSCOPIC
a Jazz North ‘northern line’ gig
Out of the ashes of the coalition’s austerity measures comes a new collective performing stripped-back versions of some of the music from Richard’s Miniature Brass Emporium and new original material. The quartet provides an intimate setting for some of his larger expansive music and a chance to hear the pieces as they were originally conceived. Microscopic is the new miniature! Whatever their 'size', Microscopic are 'CLASS!' - jazz of the highest order and all acoustic - no amplification - just like nature intended. sites.google.com/site/miniaturebrassemp/home/microscopic
