Jacob Savage Presents
Jacob is with us tonight with guest musician to get the week started The Domino way.
The Ben Playford Trio
Ben Playford and his trio evoke the output of the Nat King Cole Trio, Mose Allison and the small ensemble work of Diana Krall. Although their repertoire includes many well-known and well-loved jazz and blues standards, it also includes many tunes that are seldom heard on the bandstand today. With fresh arrangements, riveting improvisational interplay and modern influences this trio’s got a little something for everyone.
The Mabgate Swingers Party
The Mabgate Swingers Party are bringing jazz back to the party. Jazz was invented for dancing and that's the way they want to keep it! Taking influence from New Orleans jazz, Kansas City swing and all the big band greats, this young energetic septet will turn any night into one worth remembering and leave you wondering what made you ever think Jazz was boring.
Alligator Gumbo, are an exciting and energetic band inspired by the sights and sounds of New Orleans jazz and blues. These chaps wow audiences far and wide with their good-natured mix of foot-stomping rhythms toe-tapping tunes and big brassy breaks.
The Domino Collective
Led by guitarist Ed Allen, the Domino collective play funk, soul, blues, jazz and all things Domino.
Young Jack are a UK funk phenomenon ready to stand up & tell the world how to get down.
They live and breathe their music with a body of work that truly encapsulates the spirit of the funk genre and its cultural footprint. After gaining a stamp of approval from the godfather of funk himself Mr George Clinton, along with receiving major love and support courtesy of Craig Charles on his BBC Radio 2 House Party show, Young Jack and their horn section The Horny Brass aim to give you the funkiest time possible.
The Blu Flames
Jermaine and the boys are back again to keep the party going with their infectious fusion of reggae and funk.
Jacob Savage Presents
We round off the week with our hugely talented house pianist Jacob.
Each week Jacob is joined on stage by a guest musician to always bring you something fresh on a Sunday evening.
Jazz Club #5 HEV
For this months Jazz Club we have looked to the Tight Lines crew for our evening’s entertainment and they have pulled HEV from their collective musical gunny sack.
The most recently formed project from the up and coming Leeds based independent, HEV have been described as the “The Meters on crack" and as a “bassless trio who write big basslines, an offence to jazz of which they love, a contradiction in terms that in the end makes sense.”
I don’t know about the crack thing, though the Tight Lines guys are always short on cash, but I can tell you HEV are a guitar, keyboard and drums trio formed of members of Skwid Ink and Têtes de Pois who write music that doesn't fall in to any particular pigeon hole but certainly leads towards jazz and funk.
Based in London, hailing from Montenegro, Moscow, Hackney, Sydney and beyond, Soul Grenades have established themselves as one of the most exciting acts on the live scene and festival circuit. A veritable tornado of funk, the band boasts a super-tight rhythm section, a wall of brass and a burgeoning song book of original music. Fusing their many influences, encompassing crate-digging rarities to contemporary dance floor fillers, Soul Grenades deliver no-nonsense, hard-hitting funk and soul music.
Groovetrain is a 7-piece funk & soul band inspired by the iconic Stax label and cult tv show soultrain.
With a lineup of British Blues & Soul Award nominees and a set of groove-laden original tracks alongside choice cult cuts, the band have played all over the jazz/funk scene alongside the likes of Craig Charles, Brother Strut and Smoove & Turrell.
