Lilli Unwin 11 November
Wakefield Jazz has a set of 4 varied gigs on Fridays during November. The versatile John Etheridge is joined by violinist Christian Garrick on 4th; a subset of Sweet Chorus they have more freedom to explore duets beyond the Grapelli / Reinhardt canon. Always a popular pair New young singer Lilli Unwin brings her band on 11th. She features Matt Robinson (a Wakefield lad) on piano and we’re lucky she’ll be bringing him as he has gigs with almost every other band of that generation in London. Both have begun their careers by winning awards. Sadly Corrie Dick can’t make the gig and will be depped by Will Glaser on drums. The monster tourer Nigel Price brings his guitar quartet with the Hammond B3 organ of Carlo de Wijs from Holland and Alex Garnett on tenor on 18th. Then the powerful saxophonist Josh Kemp brings a quartet with Steve Fishwick (trumpet) joining him in the front line. Top musicians Ross Stanley (organ) and Chris Higginbottom (drums) complete this band.
Venue: Wakefield Sports Club Eastmoor Road, WF1 3RR
