This is the latest monthly SJN listing for jazz gigs in Shropshire. We try to make sure that all the information we send is accurate and up-to-date. However cancellations do happen, we sometimes receive inadequate information and we can make mistakes! So if you need to be sure, check for yourselves by telephoning the venues. Venue contacts are listed following the gig listings.

 

 Happy New Year!  For SJN, it starts at The Hive on January 13th, with a fantastic international group led by master drummer Jeff Williams. This month, you can also hear Bryan Corbett (1), Jamie Brownfield (16), Trish Clowes (17) and Annette Gregory (26) as well as many regular favourites.

SJN GIG OF THE MONTH: JEFF WILLIAMS QUINTET

American Jeff Williams, a player/composer of subtlety and imagination, has worked with many jazz legends including Stan Getz, Lee Konitz, Michel Petrucciani, John Scofield and Dave Liebman, who said: "his wealth of experience is staggering and very deep". This superb group includes the phenomenal American alto John O’Gallagher (“experimental with a clear melodic slant”), rising British star tenor Josh Arcoleo and the Downes/Lasserson powerhouse duo well known at the Hive.  Expect to hear work from Jeff’s forthcoming album “Lifelike”, exemplifying his aim of making "pleasurable, thought-provoking" music.
