Wakefield Jazz in March

Angus Bayley’s Scrapbook 10 March 
From Chris DeSaram

Here are the March gigs from Wakefield Jazz

03 Mar. Pat McCarthy Quartet featuring Shannon Reilly (Northern Line band)
Guitar-led band playing classic jazz with a classy singer.  Thom Whitworth’s trumpet brings solos to weave into Pat’s guitar lines. Warren Jolly plays the bass to support them all.

10 March  Angus Bayley’s Scrapbook
 An unusual septet featuring strings and horns.
Their genre-bending repertoire lies between folk, jazz and rock played for the long run.

17 March  Talinka Quartet
The singer Tali joins her husband Gilad Atzmon and a Baroque instrumentalist Jenny Bliss Bennett to intermingle saxes, accordion, flute, violin and viola da gamba.  Yaron Stavi (bass) and Enzo Zirilli (drums) hold it all together.

4 March Zoe Rahman solo
Outstanding pianist claims the club for herself with a hugely varied set reflecting her Bengali, Irish and English influences.  Her exposure with Courtney Pine has cemented her full-on jazz credentials.   Her wit and charm have won Wakefield hearts many times.
31 March  Pete Oxley / Nic Meier Quartet 
Two monster guitarists with ten guitars on a second massive tour of hugely well-received gigs.    Raph Mizraki (bass) and Paul Cavaciuti (drums) push some energy their way to drive the energy even higher.
