Jazz gigs in November at Durham's Empty Shop
November sees the continuation of regular Jazz gigs at Durham's Empty Shop HQ.
Stephen Glendinning Quartet Thursday 5th November
Top north east guitarist Steve Glendinning teams up with vibraphonist Chris Jelly & get back to their jazz roots, with reverberations of Lionel Hampton, Gary Burton, George Benson, Pat Metheny. The band will be performing repertoire from the guitar/vibes legends, interesting takes on some of the standard jazz repertoire, as well as original compositions and the odd funker to get those feet tapping.
Steve Glendinning – guitar
Chris Jelly – vibes
Michael Clark – bass
Mark Robertson – drums.
Doors from 7:00pm // Music starts at 8pm // £5 pay on the door
DIACHRONICX Thursday 19th November
Gabriele Heller – vocal
Stephen Glendinning – guitar
DIACHRONICX is a delicate and dynamic conversation between voice and strings exploring unexpected territories of jazz.
The repertoire includes originals, standards, blues, funk and pop songs. In their first programme ‘The Great City’ they experiment with pre-mixed sound atmos, electronic sounds and percussion elements as an addition to their live play and improvisations.
We encourage anyone with an interest in live jazz, or an ear for discovery to come along and support these events and please, spread the word!
