Adams, Kemp & Gordon: Wed Feb 8
Return of this great combination of musicians from different ensembles coming together to perform classic jazzy standards from 'The Great American Songbook': Cole Porter, Gershwin, Rogers and Hart. A joyful approach filled with good humour and pure enjoyment. Featuring superb vocalist Rich Adams, with Dave Kemp (saxophone), Mark Gordon (keyboards), Bob Walker (bass) and Tom Townsend (drums). £5

Jamil Sheriff Quartet Wed Feb 15
Pianist Jamil Sheriff is is Head of the Jazz course at Leeds College of Music. He is known throughout the UK Jazz scene for his  lyrical and rhythmic approach to original music, and this latest project is no exception. The group features Josh Kemp (saxes), Dave Walsh (drums) and Pete Turner (bass) and has been together since 2012. This tour is promoting their debut album 'Places Like This’, a collection of exciting music that shows off these extremely accomplished musicians. £7 (£6 in advance)

Pat McCarthy Quartet featuring Shannon Reilly Wed Feb 22
A stand out gig if you like female vocalists. Shannon grew up listening to Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Doris Day and Peggy Lee and her singing brings out the essence of each song in spellbinding performances. With Shannon are Pat McCarthy on guitar, whose fluency and swing earned him the accolade ‘world class’ from Humphrey Lyttleton, plus Thom Whitworth on trumpet, a sensitive,
imaginative improviser, and Warren Jolly whose bass playing has accompanied some of the best known names in jazz and pop. Supported by Jazz North. £5
