The Magic Hat Ensemble, The Hive, Shrewsbury, 10th April 2010

 

Review by Ian Mann (www.thejazzmann.com)

The Manchester based quintet Magic Hat Ensemble kicked off their UK spring tour with this enjoyable and entertaining evening at The Hive Arts Centre in Shrewsbury. Ironically the group’s itinerary brings them to my home town of Leominster on 16th April to play the town’s intimate Blue Note venue. By the time I’d learnt of this I’d already committed myself to covering Michael Janisch’s Saxophone Summit band in Pontypool so my only chance to catch up with the Hatters was here at Shrewsbury.

Review by Ian Mann (www.thejazzmann.com)

Shrewsbury is a comparatively easy destination for me but surprisingly this was my first visit to The Hive, a small but thriving arts centre that plays host to the Shrewsbury Jazz Network. SJN promote one gig a month there, usually on Saturday evenings with the programme alternating between locally based musicians and nationally known names. I was made most welcome by the hard working SJN team and will endeavour to return to cover some future events.
