SJN GIG OF THE MONTH

MISHA MULLOV-ABBADO SEXTET: Misha Mullov-Abbado (bass), James Davison (trumpet), Matthew Herd (alto sax), Sam Rapley (tenor sax), Liam Dunachie (piano), Scott Chapman (drums)

The Hive, Belmont, Shrewsbury, 8pm, £15 Under 22’s £7. Tickets from The Hive 01743 234970 or www.hiveonline.org.uk; Pengwern Books 01743 232236

Another brilliant young band, touring its new album, combining contemporary jazz and classical influences with swing, funk and groove based styles - think Bill Frisell, Stevie Wonder and Earth, Wind and fire - with a dose of South American folk rhythm.  In 2014, Misha won the Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize and the Dankworth Prize for jazz composition. The band's first album received excellent reviews and the new material should be of a similar quality: ambitious, tuneful and varied. The line- up of prodigious young musicians includes Ludlow pianist Liam Dunachie.
