Firebird Quartet at Scarborough

Firebird Quartet - 17 February 

The Firebird Quartet are in the north and are fast establishing themselves nationwide performing original compositions with energy and groove, as well as music from the great contemporary jazz composers such as Wynton Marsalis, Terence Blanchard and Wayne Shorter.

The quartet are fronted by trumpeter Ian Chalk, a popular regular at Scarborough Jazz who is well respected as both a player and musical educator. He is joined by John Marley (bass), Tim Carter (drums) and Martin Longhawn, a keyboard player who is so inventive he is fast becoming the first call player for artistes on national tours.

Their first visit to the club in March 2015 was a triumph and reviewer Dick Armstrong was moved to write “The Firebird Quartet gave us an evening of stimulating jazz all the way through to their sizzling encore. The audience went home on a cloud of delight.”

Admission £6 (£5 in advance).
