Stephanie Trick + Paolo Alderighi
Highly commendable are those rare clubs that put on jazz literally year round. No summer hols for Jazz at the Spa in Boston Spa - and what a nice line up for August. Such a friendly club too - worth a visit to the Boston Spa Community hall if you are in the Leeds/York area. Here's the August line up
2nd – Savannah Jazz Band – Yorkshire’s premier jazz band playing in Yorkshire’s premier jazz venue - an unbeatable combination! A real summertime treat for all concerned – especially if there are some R & B numbers to savour.
9th – Stephanie Trick + Paolo Alderighi – a delightful young musician with a personality to match. ‘Harlem stride’ piano in the Fats Waller style with a lighter touch and duets with pianist/husband Paolo Alderighi. www.stephanietrick.com -
All this plus the Daytones – our first ever double bill presenting our very own local close harmony chorus presenting a selection of the standards. One not to miss!
16th – Gavin Lee’s New Orleans Jazz Band – making a first appearance is this five piece group based in the North East and led by young reeds player, Gavin Lee. Whilst majoring in the New Orleans ensemble style, we are assured of a wide ranging and varied programme.
23rd – Wabash Jazzmen – ‘fresh, vibrant hot five jazz which packs a punch’ – how better to describe this engaging group driven along by the flowing banjo of Mark Challinor with Richard Vernon on bass. The front line of Mike Hayler, Ged Hone and Mike Pembroke completes the line up.
30th – Jeff Barnhart’s Mystic Men – more fabulous stride piano in Jeff’s inimitable style accompanied on this occasion by a clutch of the UK’s finest instrumentalists – George Huxley, Gordon Whitworth, Richard Leach, Jim Swinnerton and “Uncle” Graham on drums. What better way to round off an exceptional month! £10.
