Sheffield Jazz : Autumn programme

Julian Siegel 24 November

Vince Keddie from Sheffield Jazz writes

It was great that last year our move to the Crookes Social Club attracted so many new people. That should continue with the new Sheffield Jazz autumn season, with a wide range of bands booked for everyone to enjoy great music. There's a top-notch programme lined up, offering a very good mix of modern jazz styles and artists.

Michael Janich’s Quintet, and leading US saxophonist Craig Handy are visiting Sheffield Jazz from the USA.  The Christine Tobin Quintet, supported by Phil Robson on guitar, will play the music and songs of one of the great songwriters of the last century, Leonard Cohen.

We also will host some of the best British musicians, including one of the nominees for the 2017 Hyundai Mercury Prize Laura Jurd's Dinosaur.  Brandon Allen will bring his scintillating three-horn sextet to Crookes. We will also welcome the Dave O'Higgins quartet, with their straight-ahead swinging sound somewhere between Dexter Gordon and John Coltrane, while Sheffield favourite Julian Siegel brings his exciting and powerful quartet. And we will greet the Stan Tracey Legacy Octet - whose players include most of Stan's last Octet, led by his son Clark and with Steve Melling on piano. We also visit the Crucible Studio, when Jason Rebello returns with his trio.

More information on all these gigs can be found on
