Johnny Hunter 15 Dec
03 November 2017 - Stuart MacDonald's Bronchial Brotherhood inc. New York Brass Band Balsam
So, the mists have cleared - Bradford’s King of the Reed who NEVER disappoints in any setting plus the New York Brass Band all the way from the other side of "the pond" - not the Atlantic but Hogg's Pond in York - so we are sure to have our jazz socks blown well and truly OFF!! Best dust-off those long neglected suspenders perhaps to avoid any barefoot walks home? Jazzed-up New Orleans beckons with
Stuart McDonald : ts, James Lancaster : sousaphone, Chris Williamson, Alex Astbury : trpt, Charles Lancaster : trom, Al Morrison : guitar, John Settle : drums
01 December 2017 - Arun Ghosh
Clarinettist Arun Ghosh’s new album, the Blue Light the Red Light reveals a move from Indojazz towards song-like structures and psychedelic textures; a sonic space where Alice Coltrane meets The Doors or Velvet Underground. Propelled by a hard driving rhythm section, Ghosh's lyricism, melodic outpourings and improvisation become passionate and emotional 'songs without words'.
Arun Ghosh : clarinet, John Ellis : keys, Gavin Barras : bass, Dave Walsh : drums
15 December 2017 - Johnny Hunter Quartet
Johnny Hunter Quartet connecting authentically with jazz tradition, whilst developing its own voice through original composition. Hard-grooving jazz filtered through the investigation of more unfamiliar dance metres – a fabulous advertisement for British jazz.
Johnny Hunter - drums, Mark Hanslip - t.sax, Graham South - trpt & Seth Bennett - db
