Jamil Sheriff Trio + Josh Kemp Quartet
Leeds-based pianist Jamil Sheriff has been a highly regarded figure on the northern and wider national jazz scene for more than a decade. Not only is he an unfailingly imaginative and thoughtful player in his own right, but he also writes great melodic tunes that seem custom built to bring out the best in all three members of his fine trio. For the second set of this gig, the trio is joined by saxophonist Josh Kemp, who takes over the leadership of the group to play tunes from his recently issued album 'Tone Poetry'.
