SJN GIG OF THE MONTH:

MUIRHEAD/ENGLAND JONES/ SANSOM/ YOUNG QUARTET : Chris Young (alto sax), Elliott Sansom (piano), Ben Muirhead (bass), Nathn England Joes (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

This collaborative project combines four exceptional graduates from Birmingham Conservatoire, with the brilliant Chris Young augmenting Elliott Sansom’s trio.  While building musical careers in many forms, they are swinging and imaginative jazz players; Elliott (a finalist for BBC Young Jazz Musician) is currently Clark Tracey’s pianist and the trio will soon back Greg Abate.  They say “the vibe of this band is variety”, delivering “groove, creativity and togetherness” with a “free-flowing unrestricted contemporary sound”.  Our presentations of UK’s younger jazz talents have produced some memorable gigs and this should be no exception.  Booking recommended.
