Seven are Seven!

Enrico Pieranunzi trio October 16 @Seven Arts 

2014 marks our seventh anniversary-Seven Jazz in Leeds started on the 30 September 2007 and 500 gigs later (and workshops, festivals and the Jazz Voices choir) here we still are!

The Leeds International Jazz Concert series at Seven Arts includes appearances from the Nigel Price trio with Alex Garnett (the Seventh Anniversary party) on Thursday evening Oct 2nd, a rare appearance from one of the finest jazz pianists in the world, Enrico Pieranunzi with his trio on Thursday evening Oct 16, the first performance of  Indo Jazz saxman Jesse Bannister’s new band “Play Out” that features pianist Zoe Rahman on Thursday evening Nov 6, a welcome return date for Julian Siegel /Phil Robson’s band “Partisans”  on Thursday evening Nov 20th and finally the legendary and much loved UK sax star Stan Sultzmann with his “Neon” quartet on Thursday evening 4 December.

The Sunday afternoon showcase gigs feature international rising stars too - the likes of saxman Dan Shout from South Africa, guitarist Steve Buckley with “Wagon Train” Leeds improv pianist Matt Bourne in a trio setting with Gary Jackson on bass and Sam Hobbs on drums, the “EyesShutTight” Trio and Sam Gardner’s “Samadhi” featuring top Polish saxman Krzysztof Urbanski and Dutch based pianist Dominic J Marshall – also the last gig Sam will do in Leeds before moving to London

Details of all of the gigs can be found on the Seven Jazz website and are listed below. The evening international concert series start at 8.30pm, and the Sunday afternoon showcase gigs run between 1 and 4pm; ticket prices are detailed on the website; evening gigs are £16/14 concessions with a £5 standby ticket for full time students, Sunday lunchtime gigs are £7/5 concessions with kids under 16 free.
