International jazz and talented northern bands at Seven Jazz’s two venues, Seven Arts and Inkwell Arts in Chapel Allerton Leeds this Spring.

The first evening is award-winning jazz alto saxophonist and hip hop star Soweto Kinch ‘The Legend of Mike Smith’ with support from the Abstract Hip Hop Orchestra. Then Canadian Trumpeter Jay Phelpes has put together a trans-Atlantic sextet to perform the music of Miles Davis in his “Projection of Miles” concert. Leeds based jazz singer Louise Gibbs premieres her new “Seven Deadly Sings” , a jazz song cycle scored for voice and septet and a star line up of international musicians such as Tony Kofi, Tim Whitehead and Quentin Collins and then Jean Toussaint – the sax playing member of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers - returns Seven Arts leading his own quartet. Australian tenor sax jazz star Brandon Allen comes to Leeds with his quartet on April 3rd and finally before Easter the superb duo of saxman Tommy Smith and pianist Brian Kellock make it down from Scotland before they close the border.
