Bristol jazz this week – 39 Aug
Sunday at the Alma in Clifton has the Henderson-Willox quartet “with Lisa Cherian and Matt Jones playing groovin’ Soul Jazz including covers of Stevie Wonder songs”.
Marie Lister and James Ladd are at the Canteen earlier in the day. They say:
Duval Project vocalist Marie Lister somehow catches all the soul of great R’n’B in the most stripped down acoustic setting, thus blending perfectly with the gumbo savour of bluesy N’Awlins that wreathes around James Ladd’s rolling guitar and downtown voice.
The peerless Dave Newton (really enjoyed his recent duo set with Don Weller in Brecon Cathedral) graces the jazz club at Future Inns with his piano playing on Thursday, while Moscow Drug Club bring their atmospheric jazzy cabaret songs to the FringeJazz in Clifton (Jon Taylor’s sessions starting their final month in the current venue before a big move in October, of which more later).
James Morton is at No 1 Harbourside on Friday (and probably several other places during the week… including the regular session at the Gallimaufry on Thursday)
Things starting to wake up a bit now September’s here. Andy Hague‘s Silverado have a date for Ian Storror at the Hen and Chicken on Sunday 7th, and the Be-Bop club season opens on Friday 12th with Dave Newton, this time leading a quintet. But that’s all I have for this week.
