"Seven Deadly Sings" /Jean Toussaint @Seven Leeds!


Louise Gibbs and the "Seven Deadly Sings" Septet

I hope you've survived the February storms OK, managed to get out and see some jazz - and avoided all those politicians in wellington boots!

Seven Jazz's programme in Leeds for March is looking good with the premiere on Thursday 6 March at Seven Arts of a new jazz suite by singer Louise Gibbs "Seven Deadly Sings" with an all-star line up of musicians, Louise Gibbs - voice with a septet featuring Neil Yates - trumpet/flugel; Tony Kofi -alto /baritone Sax; Tim Whitehead -tenor sax/clarinet; Tom White -trombone; Sam Leak -piano; Oli Hayhurst -bass; Sam Gardner -drums/percussion; then on Thursday 20th March ex-Art Blakey saxman Jean Toussaint at Seven Arts with his exciting quartet (Jean Toussaint tenor sax, Andrew McCormack piano, Larry Bartley bass and Troy Miller drums) .

Watch out also for the showcase Sunday afternoon gig featuring five (!) trombones led by Kevin Holbrough "Slide Area" on Sunday March 2nd 1-4pm @Inkwell(are these the last five jazz trombones alive in the wild?) then saxman Toby Greenwood's "We Free Kings" @Seven Arts on Sunday 9th March 1-4pm. That'll be followed by the exquisite piano playing of Jamil Sheriff's Trio @Inkwell Sunday March 16th 1-4pm Krysztof Urbanski's "Urban Jazz Society" on Sunday March 23rd @Seven Arts 1-4pm and then to finish the month our jazz-karaoke-meets-jam session Spring Jazz cafe on Sunday March 30th@Seven Arts 1-4pm

That's always assuming we get through the gig by "Big Beat" this coming Sunday - another unusual line up, a two-drummer band led by brilliant young sax player Will Howard on Sunday 23 February@Seven 1-4pm - now where did I put those ear muffs...!
