Sheffield Autumn programmes start here!

From Neil at Sheffield jazz

Autumn’s here so it’s time for the new Sheffield Jazz season to begin at 8pm tonight on Friday 30th September at Crookes Social Club with the brilliant and remarkable Benn Clatworthy.

And as a special offer to introduce our move to Crookes, all tickets for this gig are priced at just £5 !

A perennial Sheffield favourite, the Benn Clatworthy quartet feature the gifted John Donaldson on piano, Simon Thorpe on bass and Matt Horne on drums. Based in Los Angeles, Clatworthy is a great tenor sax player, from storming post-Coltrane energy to beautiful ballad playing.

The press are unanimous :

"Sublime" - Jazz Times .... "Brilliant" - London Evening Standard; "Astounds everyone" – The Observer

We’re very happy with the facilities at Crookes Club which will give our audience an improved experience, through its great sound and sightlines, plentiful seats and tables and an excellent well-stocked bar.
There’ll be the traditional raffle at the break, but this time Silversmith’s restaurant have generously donated a prize of a VIP dinner for two. And later on in the season there’ll be further chances to win dinner at Silversmith’s, before each of the two Crucible gigs that they are sponsoring this autumn. Featured in Harden’s 2016 guide, we’re grateful for their sponsorship which helps us continue to bring the best of UK jazz to Sheffield.
