Bristol jazz week – Feb

February 20, 2017

Need to make sure this goes up today as there’s a notable early gig this week – namely Led Bib at the Canteen tomorrow (Tuesday). The rocking, raucous outfit are back with a new CD after a three year break from recording, and touring all over – congrats to the Canteen for booking them in.

Other things of note this week include ace bass and trumpet player Percy Purseglove‘s Perdato (think the Pushy Doctors with Percy substituting for Andy Sheppard) at the Fringe on Wednesday, Denny Ilett’s quartet at the BeBop club Friday. (I’m still cross to have missed John Law last week through illness – must see him again soon).

Finally, Alex Monk’s Flying Machines should be a memorable night at Future Inn on Thursday. I don’t know the band, but they have a very promising personnel, including the ace rhythm team of Conor Caplin on bass and Dave Hamblett on drums.Haven’t made it down to Future Inn yet this year, either, but their programme still looks as if it is going strong.
