Wakefield Jazz takes a rest over Easter so we only have one gig in April- Friday 28th April
V E I N is a Swiss piano trio on a major tour of Europe and Japan playing only 3 gigs in the UK. They have a ten year history of recording and touring with US stars such as Dave Liebman and Greg Osby but are relatively unknown in the UK. Led by bassist Florian Arbenz with his brother Michael on piano and Thomas Lähns on drums they are sponsored by the Swiss Arts Council.
We are proud to announce our regular podcasts “Jazzheads”. These are to be found from our website under the tab Jazzheads Radio or directly at http://jazzheads.podbean.com/?source=pb
Each episode (of 17 posted so far) is similar to Desert Island Discs in which a visiting artist, or someone associated with Wakefield Jazz, recommends tracks they consider essential listening (3 for visitors or 10 for an associate). Some have a biographical approach, others a theme. Musos are asked for a track of their own, one by an artist they recommend us to explore and finally an all time favourite. The chat and the tracks are intriguing
Venue: Wakefield Sports Club Eastmoor Road, WF1 3RR
