 There is no SJN gig this month, though next year’s very exciting first gig is listed following this month’s events. 

Around the county, there is as usual a wide variety of excellent jazz.  For example: Clun Valley Jazz presents award-winning pianist Elliott Sansom at Craven Arms (15th).  Bridgnorth Jazz has Rico Tomasso (3rd) and Tina May and Craig Milverton (17th).  Guitar buffs should enjoy Mozes Rosenberg (Shrewsbury, 7thand 8th) and Garry Potter (Oswestry, 16th).  

Thank you very much for your support throughout the year.  We wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy New Year and look forward to sharing more wonderful music in 2018.

SJN GIG OF THE MONTH: JEFF WILLIAMS QUINTET                              

Jeff Williams (drums), John O’Gallagher (alto sax), Josh Arcoleo (tenor sax), Kit Downes (piano), Sam Lasserson (bass)

The Hive, Belmont, Shrewsbury, 8pm, £16/£8 U22s

American Jeff Williams, a player/composer of subtlety and imagination, has worked with many jazz legends including Getz, Konitz, Petrucciani, Scofield and Dave Liebman, who said: "his wealth of experience is staggering and very deep". This superb group includes the phenomenal American John O’Gallagher (“experimental with a clear melodic slant”), rising British star 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.
