Bristol jazz week, Jan 19th

January 18, 2014

(venue links on right hand side of this page)

One I missed until  now, but picked up from the excellent Listomaniabath site – which is compiled from Bath but has good coverage of Bristol jazz as well – Andy Nowak‘s piano trio playing an evening of South African flavoured jazz at the Alma in Clifton on Sunday 19th. (Missed, I see, because not listed on the Alma’s own website…)

Bristol Composers’ Collective should have their regular monthly date at the Wardrobe Theatre on Monday, but no details of who’s playing yet…

The versatile trumpeter Pete Judge (of Get the Blessing and Dakhla) has two outings this week – his duo with drummer Paul Wigens, Eyebrow, are at the Tobacco Factory Cafe on Sunday Evening, and  Three Cane Whale play St George’s Thursday Night. They aren’t exactly jazz, if you care, but do offer fascinating instrumental music. Actually, make that three outings, as Eyebrow are also billed at the Canteen on Sunday, presumably starting in time (4.00ish) to get over the Bedminster to play in the evening…

Thursday offers good things elsewhere, too. The Bristol European Jazz Ensemble launch their new CD at the Fringe, where they recorded live last year, while alto and baritone player Kevin Figes‘ quartet are at Future Inns at Cabot Circus.

Friday sees guitarist Ant Law bring an excellent quartet to the BeBop club. If it draws anything like the crowd of the Jan 17th session with Reuben Fowler, when some (including me) failed to get in, it’ll be a good idea to get there early. The same outfit also come near(ish) to Bristol on Tuesday with a date at Swindon’s jazz spot Baker Street.

As usual, do add any I’ve missed in the comments…
