Friday 3 May- Simon Spillett and Paul Edis
Friday 7 June- Vasilis Xenopoulos and Paul Edis
Saxophonist Vasilis Xenopoulos “a tremendous asset to the UK jazz scene” (Andy Boeckstaens, LondonJazzNews) and pianist Paul Edis ‘a significant new voice in British Jazz’ (Brian Morton, Jazz Journal) first met whilst studying at music college in London over 10 years ago. Both are in high demand as sidemen, leading their own projects and touring the UK, but they still find time to perform regularly as a duo.
In 2016 they released the album A Narrow Escape to critical acclaim “a fine example of jazz as a conversation, of communication born of mutual respect and countless gigs together…a late contender for album of the year.” (Russell Corbett, Bebop Spoken Here).
They love to perform music from the Great American Songbook (Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers etc) alongside original compositions rooted in the straight ahead jazz and swing tradition.
Friday 5 July- Ruth Lambert Quartet
Ruth Lambert is a talented and versatile jazz singer based in the north east of England who has established herself in recent years as one of the UK’s most classy and distinctive jazz vocalists. Balancing a voice of warmth and maturity with spark and charisma, Ruth is in her element whether fronting a big band or working with one or two other musicians to create a more intimate vibe.
For this concert she is joined by Paul Edis (piano) Andy Champion (bass) and Russ Morgan (drums).
Friday 2 August- James Birkett and Bradley Johnston Guitar Duo
James and Bradley will present their overview of jazz repertoire from the 1920s to the present day, exploring the sound worlds of the guitar through recreating recorded classics and their interpretations of ‘standards’.
