Bristol jazz week – 18 March

March 18, 2019

It looks like a snow-free weekend for Bristol’s jazz festival this year, so all set for a great weekend. My preview’s in the last post, and there’s another here with plenty of good video links.

There are still some gigs to note before the Festival gets under way. Frequent collaborators John Pearce and Dave Newton are at the Fringe in Clifton on Wednesday, while the adventurous Sefrial appear at the Canteen. And Future Inns has a festival warm-up special bringing together a bunch of Bristol regulars. John Pearce is out again, along with Gary Alesbrook – Trumpet/Flugelhorn, Anders Olinder – Piano, Matt Hopkins – Guitar, Victoria Klewin – Vocals and Kevin Figes – Alto Saxophone – with more special guests promised on the night.  

The BeBop club are taking a break this Friday so everyone can go to the opening night of the Festival, but one  gig which, throwing caution to the winds, is scheduled for Sunday features the words and music improv outfit Blazing Flame Quintet, fronted by Steve Day.  That’s at the Alma Tavern, starting around 6 in the evening, so still within hailing distance of the festival if you fancy something a little different.
