Parr jazz- feast this October

Jazz, in all its forms, a booming part of Liverpool’s music scene. Tuesday’s Parrjazz delivers a storming jam session in Studio2 Parr Street with jazz touring players – they’ve had Japanese martial arts rockers and American proggers playing with students and Liverpool schmoozers. For over 10 years, Liverpool’s Parrjazz has promoted top international players: Snarky Puppy/FORQ/Gogo Penguin/Alan Barnes/Dennis Rollins and loads more.

Angular free-jazz, early roots, ragtime, classic swing, the coolest cool cats, jazz-rock fusion, prog, funk and trippy youngsters working their way out of the trancey psych soup. Summer to autumn in Liverpool has seen spectacular artists. June was kicked off into a dark gothic castle by Liverpool’s own Blind Monk Trio cascading Black Sabbath/Stranglers/Coltrane at Ma Boyle’s Alehouse and Eatery; the local vicar sat outside, cigar and a single malt.

The rest of June in Studio2 was a blast. San Francisco’s Paul McCandless with Charged Particles, closing off with a packed house for USA’s finest Prog/Fusion outfit, FORQ, touring their latest record Thrēq. FORQ’s storming acid-jazz rocker Cowabunghole created a jazz mosh pit! July gave us The California Jazz Conservatory showcasing west coast talent. Nashville’s Suzahn Fiering gave us a master class in songwriting. As August broke, Barry’s Boptet smashed out the best of Be Bop - Herdsmen to Miles Davis. Sax legend Dean Masser carried on the theme. September, had Guitar/Hammond/Drums combo Tobie Carpenter Organ Trio, touring their debut EP Dead Pan Party.

October is a jazz-feast. Leading UK Jazz talents Brigitte Beraha’s Babelfish on the 2nd, UNMISSABLE Bristopian jazz-trippers Get The Blessing on the 11th (Tickets from See Tickets/Skiddle), Robert Mitchell's Epiphany 3 on 16th, guitarist Stuart McCallum on 23rd, with the insane Baked A La Ska Halloween Special on the 30th. November will feature two sax heavyweights – Benn Clatworthy and Greg Abate………… nice!
