Bristol jazz this week, 7 September

September 6, 2014

Reminder for this Sunday (7th). As mentioned last week, Silverado are at the Hen and Chicken (down in Southville a short walk from the Tobacco Factory), playing – you guessed – Horace Silver tunes. Arrangements by Andy Hague, horn playing by Andy, Ben Waghorn and Kevin Figes.

Bristol Composers Collective might be returning on Monday. Anyone know? No info at the moment…

Guitarist Matt Hopkins leads his trio (Anders Olinder – Keyboards,  Andy Tween – Drums) plus guest John Pearce on violin at Fringe Jazz in Clifton on Thursday, while keyboard man about town Dan Moore leads a trio with Greg Cordez (bass) and Matt Brown (drums) at Future Inns.

An excellent line-up to launch the Be-Bop club‘s new season in Hotwells on Friday – Dave Newton leading a quintet from the piano, with Andy Hague – trumpet, Ben Waghorn – tenor sax, Will Harris – bass and Mark Whitlam – drums.

There’s something rather special earlier that evening, too. Colston Hall has a strong autumn jazz line-up, with gigs coming up from Lulo Reinhardt, Claire Martin, Neil Cowley and The Necks.

One you may have missed is this free foyer date from Blue Eyed Hawk. Who are they? It’s a starry young quartet, featuring the striking singer Lauren Kinsella, who writes most of the lyrics, the much lauded trumpeter Laura Jurd, Alex Roth on guitars and Corrie Dick on drums and keys. The Bristol set is part of a short tour to mark release of their fine CD Under the Moon, which is insistent and dreamy by turns and packed with interesting music and lyrics, including a unique take on Somewhere Over the Rainbow. Really unusually good. More details here.

    Coming up at the Canteen, Sept the 17th is BEJE. John, as you have the cd maybe this would be a good time to say a few words about the band, if you have time. Thankyou…
