Afuriko April 26thFrom John McCormick
'At Last' ! As Etta James might have succinctly put it - A new edition of the 'ParrJazz Bugle'. Sticking with the 'Great American Song Book', it could be said that 'Spring's A Little Late This Year' !
Been a turbulent time for the 'Muse' in his attic studio atop our H.Q. ' ParrJazz Towers '. However various tinctures & potions have proved extremely restorative so all well again now. March Winds have doth been and gone but April and it's 'showers' may still come your way along with the merry month of May before Spring Fever abates. So let's crack on with the action
The Guest Programme for the year is panning out brilliantly by the way . Can't believe the incredible array of artistes we have lined up . From all corners of the universe, all styles , all ages, all fantastic (& all nice people).
First off in April (5th), we are pleased to welcome a newcomer to the club. From Edinburgh it's the wonderful jazz diva Angie King
The following week, Tuesday 12th. it's , wait for it....our 7th. Birthday Party- Lots of Fun, Wine, Cake, Nuts and Hot - hotter than hot jazz from our young,highly energetic guests , the seven piece Flycats Parade band.
A band with a very different style joins us on the 19th. - contemporary jazz flawlessly played by the U.S. / European Trio Pericopes Modern and original but beautifully melodic music.
To close out the month on the 26th - another band - well a 'twosome' actually. Their music also melodic and flowing but balanced with a spicy edge. Nail bitingly astounding. The superb Anglo - Japanese combination 'Afuriko'
That's about it for April - but coming up in May an equally impressive 'cast list'. We'll be kicking off on the 5th May swingin' & rockin' with ace piano man and knock out vocalist Anthony Kinsey. Then Matt Owens Quartet, The LIPA Big Band & David Lytle's combo will all be dropping by . Look out for the nitty gritty on them and much more besides in the May edition of "The Bugle" !
Meanwhile Keep Swingin' !
