Pigfoot 31 Jan
From Pete Rosser
Happy New Year to everyone from Wakefield Jazz!
We return this Friday 17th Jan with Alina Hip Harp, the new quartet led by the remarkable Ukrainian harpist Alina Bzhezhinska, with a more electric angle on jazz, funk and trip-hop, with Mikele Montolli (bass), Adam Teixeira (drums) and Joel Prime (percussion).
Friday 24th Jan we welcome SogoRock (a Northen Line/Jazz North supported sextet from Leeds) - led by Hungarians Bela Horvath and Ferenc Lakatos, they promise elements of jazz, fusion, funk, rock and gospel, with Nic Svarc on guitar, plus sax/synth/keyboards/bass/drums.
And on Friday 31st Jan, the acid trad phenomenon that is Pigfoot, a quartet of UK jazz luminaries deconstructing tunes everyone knows with irresistible good humour and irreverence. Chris Batchelor (trumpet), James Allsop (Bari sax), Liam Noble (piano/keyboards) and Paul Clarvis (drums).
