Jazz at the Lescar, Sheffield

James Mainwaring
Every Wednesday, 48 weeks of the year we host a diverse range of music from local, regional and national touring artists, all in the intimacy of The Lescar back-room, and showcasing the depth and vibrancy of the UK jazz scene.
 Coming up in the early part of Spring 2014 we've got the following:
- cutting edge improvisation and grooves from James Mainwaring and Matthew Bourne, with Mick Bardon and Joost Hendrickx (Jan 22nd), 
- two consecutive weeks with the best of the young London jazz scene, starting with guitarist Ant Law and a band featuring members of Empirical, Kit Downes sextet, and Troykestra on Jan 29th

- followed on Feb 5th by Tom Harrison (alto sax/flute), Connor Chaplin (bass) and David Lyttle (drums) all joining Sheffield based guitarist Jamie Taylor.
- Sheffield-based Latin/funk outfit Montuno are sure to lift the roof off the Lescar on Feb 12th!
Let Spin visit on Feb 19th; an all-star line-up with Ruth Goller (Acoustic Ladyland) on bass, Moss Freed (Moss Project) on guitar, Finlay Panter (Beats & Pieces) on drums and Chris Williams (Led Bib) on sax. 
- From Manchester, drummer Johnny Hunter brings his quartet on Feb 26th. Their 2013 CD on Efpi records recently featured on BBC Radio 3's Jazz on 3 

- Finally more from the London scene on March 5th, with a quintet led by Portuguese guitarist Vitor Pereira, featuring Chris Williams, George Crowley, Andrea Di Biase and Dave Hamblett, playing music with hints of both classical and world music.
