Bristol jazz week, Sep 12

Weekly pointer to Mr Benjamin’s comprehensive jazz previews on Bristol 247, which I link to so blog followers don’t have to go looking for it. This week’s is here.

As he says, the date for John Law at the Bear is an enticing prospect. Sam Crockatt’s recent appearances in Bristol have shown us a superb player, and hearing him in one of Law’s quartet’s will be great. They’ve already made a lovely CD, which is sampled below. Here, they’re delving into Brad Mehldau territory with a reading of Nick Drake’s River Man. There are a couple of other tracks on youtube, which are also worth your time, as well as a more recent, live performance of this tune.

Looks like it’s going to be an evening of favourite songs played by favourite musicians.
