Alan Barnes and Jack Emblow (4th June 2014)

Jack Emblow has been at the top of his game as an accordionist for over fifty years. His work has included a substantial body of jazz and his technique remains masterful. Barnes's sax and clarinet work is recognised internationally, and he has long been a loyal supporter of jazz in Scarborough.

Accompanied by the Mike Gordon Trio, this performance was a very suitable contribution to the club’s thirtieth birthday celebrations.

Anita Wardell with Dave O'Higgins Quartet (The Loire Allstars: 14th May 2014)

These guys all have international reputations, and, predictably, they played beautifully, mainly sticking to the material on their CD, a varied selection of melodic standards (ranging from the contemporary Latin pop-jazz fusion of Djavan’s “Flor de Lis” to the highly un-contemporary pop-jazz of Cole Porter’s “I Love You, to the more overtly modernistic “Throw it Away” [Abbey Lincoln], “Blue Monk” [Thelonious Monk] and “Jinrikisha” [Joe Henderson]), though all were interpreted in mainstream modern jazz mode.

The Weave (23rd April 2014)

This sextet from Liverpool crackled and fizzed with energy. Their front line of two trumpets and a guitar marked them as different, and their repertoire consisted entirely of original compositions - with one exception the work of trumpeter and leader Martin Smith.

The Weave were electrifying and triumphant, and had the audience shouting their appreciation.

The Revolutionaires (2nd April 2014)

The Revolutionaires are described as a "sizzlin' hot rhythm and blues combo." This is exactly right - but doesn't give any idea of how visual this band is to see live. They dress the part, looking sharp and smart.  They employ comedy business and choreography. They've got their stuff down to a 'T', playing high-energy, riff driven numbers with an infectious beat  and irresistible swagger.
