Tim Garland 18 Oct
Some big jazz names this autumn at the Band on the Wall in Manchester:
TUESDAY 18TH OCTOBER: TIM GARLAND
Tim Garland is one of the most versatile musicians in the UK. Highly skilled as an instrumentalist, composer and bandleader, Garland has developed a highly original voice with a marriage of diverse influences combined with unique and varied line-ups. This band features Asaf Sirkis, Jason Rebello and relative newcomer Ant Law on various guitars (including 12 string and 8 string).
THURSDAY 27TH OCTOBER: MARTIN TAYLOR
Award-winning guitarist Martin Taylor celebrates his 60th birthday and 45 years as a touring artist with a series of solo UK concerts. His dazzling solo concerts combines his virtuosity, emotion and humour with a strong, engaging stage presence
TUESDAY 8TH NOVEMBER: THE NECKS
Celebrating their 30th anniversary in 2016, The Necks offer a phenomenal musical experience, unlike any piano trio you may have heard. Over 30 years they have honed an assured process of building around repeated motifs through subtle shifts and layering to produce an extraordinarily dense and hypnotic effect, which builds in a mesmerising, epic fashion. The Necks may be a trio but they conjure a sound of orchestral expanse.
TUESDAY 15TH NOVEMBER: THE COOKERS
Hard hitting, classic American hard-bop from an all-star sextet led by legendary Herbie Hancock trumpeter Eddie Henderson and the great saxophonist Billy Harper, whose titanic saxophone playing is one of contemporary jazz’s most powerful sounds.
SUNDAY 20TH NOVEMBER: CHARLIE HUNTER
Charlie Hunter – Guitar Bobby Previte – Drums Yelfris Valdes – Trumpet Kieran McLeod – Trombone. Hailing from San Francisco, Charlie Hunter is one of the most exciting jazz guitarists working today, and one whose style is genuinely unique. Hunter’s primary influences are jazz great Joe Pass and the fluid Tuck Andress, both six-string guitarists adept at blending bass notes into standard guitar melodies to make themselves sound like two musicians at once.
