Wild Flower (15th Jatnuary 2014)

This exciting group led by saxophonist Matt Anderson gave us an evening of wonderful jazz.
 
Formed to celebrate the work of saxophonist Wayne Shorter, the band is rich in talent and played with great skill and spirit. As well as enjoying Matt's relaxed and elegant playing, his compositional skills were featured  on five numbers.  These held their own against those from Shorter chosen for the gig.

John Etheridge Trio North (27th November 2013)

This  highly accomplished trio gave us an excellent evening of jazz through a varied repertoire.
 
John Etheridge is a vastly experienced musician with great technical command.  With him were Ben Crosland, who was rock-steady on fretless bass guitar, and drummer Dave Tyas, swinging and nimble on either sticks or brushes.

Barry Green, Dave Green & Henry Lowther (4th September 2013)

This was a very special night of music that was engrossing and played with enormous skill.  Barry Green's piano and Dave Green's double bass gave a masterly example of togetherness.  They seemed almost glued together as they chased and twisted through the music, developing a conversational quality that was delightful.
 
Barry's touch is clean and crisp and Dave is a maestro on bass, showing why he's been highly sought after for several decades. Henry Lowther has a pure approach to the trumpet, without vibrato or other effects.  His sound has an appealing tinge of melancholy.

Nicola Farnon Trio (3rd July 2013)

Nicola Farnon is a small woman with a big personality.  She reaches out to an audience and seems to enfold them.  Once under her 'spell', criticism -or even comparison - seem absurd.  Nicola is simply Nicola and the Farnon phenomenon sweeps you away.
 
Her vocals and bass playing are enhanced by Piero Tucci, a very gifted pianist who also doubles on sax and Phil Johnson is the superb drummer who completes this swinging trio.
