SHREWSBURY JAZZ NETWORK LISTINGS:

JAZZ IN SHROPSHIRE SEPTEMBER 2017 

This is the latest monthly SJN listing for jazz gigs in Shropshire. We try to make sure that all the information we send out in these listings is accurate and up-to-date. However cancellations do happen, we sometimes receive inadequate information and 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.

This month’s list includes some fascinating music. As well as our presentation of the superb John Law’s Re-creations (The Hive, Saturday 10), you can hear Gilad Atzmon’s tribute to Coltrane (Hermon Chapel, Friday 22) and Dakhla Brass (The Hatch, Tuesday 19), a unique new band highly rated by Jamie Cullum.  Plus, of course, many other excellent gigs dotted about the county.

SJN GIG OF THE MONTH

JOHN LAW’S RE-CREATIONS:  John Law (keyboards), Sam Crockatt (tenor and soprano saxophone), James Agg (bass), Billy Weir (drums)

John Law, “one of the UK’s most mature and versatile jazz pianists”, is known for playing in many musical contexts, including electronica.  But this band is acoustic, playing accessible melodic music arranged by Law from the jazz, pop and indie repertoire.  “A formidable thematic improviser”, Law draws on his stunning pianistic skills, encyclopaedic knowledge and wide-open mind to create musical surprises.  The now well-established Sam Crockatt is a brilliant contemporary player, full of feeling and refinement and with a nod to tradition, as he showed at The Hive a few years ago.  Bassist James Agg and drummer Billy Weir can negotiate rhythmic complexity as easily as laying down the deepest groove.  Expect an evening of great tunes, wonderfully interpreted.  Please book!

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
