March Jazz at Zeffirellis, Ambleside

Quay Change 

March Jazz at Zeffirellis, Ambleside, Lake District
Jazz on Saturday evenings (and a Friday)

Mar 1 John Bailey Quartet An unusual band, matching fine saxophonist Tim France with Bailey’s classical guitar, playing compositions from his new album ‘Heart Horizons’. Free 8:30 pm

Mar 8 Compass Quartet A real unsung hero, virtuosic Blackpool-based Italian guitarist Willy Fluss guides a drummerless chamber-jazz quartet featuring in-demand bassist Neil Harland through carefully selected pages from the Great American Songbook. Free 8:30 pm

Mar 15 Quay Change Excellent survey of  the jazz songbook from this fine and rightly popular Lancaster-based quartet featuring the fabulous vocals of Amy Worth with Frank Flynn on Piano, Dave Lee on Sax and Lawrence Canty on Bass

Mar 22 The Angry Men Fronted by bassist Paul Robinson & saxophonist Mike Smith, this new  Manchester-Liverpool quintet came to our attention via a recommendation from award-winning pianist Gwilym Simcock, so demanded serious consideration. Highly crafted & superbly played jazz-funk with a heavy nod to masters of the genre. Free 8:30 pm

Mar 28 Urban Jazz  Sam Gardner is a modest leader providing the appropriate support for every moment as the music develops.  Jamil Sheriff’s muscular piano playing upholds any harmonic exploration. Saxman Krzysztof Urbanski is a master in the making able to add excitement unexpectedly. Pete Turner’s accomplished bass never settles into a routine walk Free 8:30 pm

Mar 29 Paul Edis Solo piano performance from one of the country’s leading young jazz players, recently awarded a PhD in composition from the University of York. Free 8:30 pm

Compston Road, Ambleside, Cumbria, LA22 9AD.
