Bristol (and Bath) jazz this week – 29 April

There’s a mass of stuff on offer in Bristol this week, detailed as usual by Mr Benjamin on Bristol247. He’s also been reviewing great-sounding gigs I’ve missed, including Sun Ra orchestra and Gilad Atzmon.

He highlights a bunch of Cheltenham gigs, too (see my previous post). In Bristol, my own choice would be the Cloudmakers trio on Wednesday at the Fringe if I was free (I’m not). But as Tony mentions one gig in Bath, I’ll add another.

Tomorrow see’s the latest of Nod Knowles’ promotions at Widcombe Social Club, just up behind the station. It’s an excellent venue, and the Dutch trio Nordanians who perform this week look like they’re electic in a good way. There’s a new interview with them here on LondonJazz, suggesting they offer a “blend of raga-driven energy, adventurous funk and delicate chamber music” and details of the gig here. Tickets are now a tenner, in advance or on the door.

And here’s the promo video
