16th October: Alice Zawadzki
From Jez Matthews at the Sheffield Lescar
We’ve got everything covered from fusion and singer-songwriter/folk influences to vibrant large bands and small intimate ensembles, Mercury nominees, and the 2018 BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year.
This week, wonderful vocalist and violinist Alice Zawadzki brings a virtuosic string trio with cellist Shirley Smart and bass player Misha Mullov-Abbado, and we have two dynamic takes on contemporary fusion with Flying Machines and the Mike De Souza Trio in consecutive weeks. Manchester Jazz Collective bring their spirited and inspiring large ensemble over the Snake Pass in November, followed by a truly all-star trio of Nadim Teimoori, Ruth Goller and Corrie Dick, and a return of the acclaimed Jamie Doe, aka Magic Lantern, sure to be a magical evening in the Lescar backroom. We’ve got some truly beautiful lyrical music from four Northern-based musicians at the end of November, when Universal Time join us, and finally we launch into December with the BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year, Xhosa Cole, and his charismatic and driving quartet.
