Coming up – The Gannets etc, Friday

February 1, 2012

Encouraging night with Gilad Atzman at Colston last Sunday – a good crowd, and a pretty absorbing performance. The first set was a little too obviously crowd-pleasing for our taste (the obviousness, not the crowd-pleasing being the reservation). After the break, it got a bit…   jazzier I suppose, and really lifted off. Atzman is a superb musician and while he tends to namecheck Parker seems increasingly under a Coltrane influence. Some great interaction with pianist Frank Harrison, too.

Feels too cold to go out this week, almost, but worth an excursion for a triple bill at St George’s on Friday. Don’t know much about them personally, but had some reliable recommendations for the Gannets + 2 other sets. The venue website has all the details.

Speaking of websites, have just added a link to the Canteen’s calendar in the sidebar. Their daily music often features the best of local jazz players and is well worth checking out – a few nice ones coming up.
