Quite a three weeks in Leeds

Chris Biscoe and Tony Kofi- Mingus Profiles Sextet 3 December

Quite a three weeks for Seven Jazz in Leeds! They present evening concerts by jazz superstar Andy Sheppard, then the "Mingus Profiles" band keeping alive the genius of the great jazz adventurer Charles Mingus, who died in 1979, and finally a family night out that will also be a treat for the jazz connoisseur with Alan Barnes Octet performing "A Christmas Carol"! Phew....

Andy Sheppard Quartet "Surrounded by Sea" @Seven Arts 5.45pm-8pm, Thursday 26 November £20/18 concessions
Andy Sheppard saxes, Eivind Aarset guitar and electronics, Michel Benita bass and Michele Rabbia drums.
This concert features works from Andy's new album, Surrounded by Sea (ECM). As the evening concert sold out within days of tickets going on sale, Seven Jazz have arranged an extra early evening performance which will start at 5.45pm and finish at 8pm. (doors open 5.15pm).

“Seven Jazz introduces” in support is the Matt Aplin Trio from 5.45-6.15pm
