Summer fun at Scarborough jazz...

Nicola Farnon                                       Si Beddoe

June 17 Nicola Farnon Trio
The Trio’s last appearance at Scarborough Jazz was a triumph, as they played with high energy, irresistible  swing and passion. A fine singer and a swinging bass player, Nicola has an outgoing personality that makes her a remarkable stage performer. With her is Piero Tucci, an accomplished pianist, who doubles on saxophone, and in-demand drummer Phil Johnson. Nicola sings her favourite jazz and Latin standards.  Humphrey Lyttelton said: "She is a class act who should be on every jazz festival in the land - a sure fire hit!" £7 (£6 in advance)

June 24 Jon Taylor & Ian Royle
Another duo and this is their first performance together Jon is an experienced freelance, improvising saxophonist covering various styles such as Jazz, Blues, Latin. Ian has played  for the BBC with the Northern Radio Orchestra. His trumpet styles range from Miles Davis to Humphrey Lyttelton. £5

July 1 Russ Henderson
Sax player Russ is probably one of the best exports from Scotland since fine single malt - and just as classy. Expect thoughtful and powerful renditions of standards when accompanied by the MG3 with Tom Townsend as the new resident drummer. £4

July 8 Simon Beddoe
A welcome return to the club for trumpeter  Tonight we can expect some wonderful flugel and trumpet workouts on a selection of standards. If Simon’s last visit is anything to go by, you can expect Mike, Tom and Bob to  have a good workout too. £4

15 Will Powell Quartet featuring Ben Lowman
A first visit to the club for guitarist Will, who has garnered a great following on the jazz scene in and around Leeds. Expect some Sonny Rollins Duke Ellington, some re-imagined standards along with a few self-penned tunes. £7 (£6 in advance)

Leeds based Toby hails from a musical family and has been a professional sax player since the age of 16. Toby lists Wayne Shorter and Charles Mingus amongst his influences along with Latin American and South African Jazz. £4
