Jazz in the Spa
4th – Jim Wright’s Rhythm de Luxe – Jim is no stranger to the Boston Spa stage having played here on numerous occasions as a swinging member of the rhythm section. On this occasion, he leads his own group on a musical tour of the popular tunes from the Jazz age, Rhythm & Blues, Country Music, Skiffle and even some Rock ‘n’ Roll. After the gloom of the past months, Happy Days are here again!
11th – Louis Louis Louis – here’s something a little different. As the name suggests, the sounds of Armstrong, Prima and Jordan plus much more. Four part harmonies and a driving boogie woogie style piano. Just the ticket for the many R & B fans amongst you. Always a truly engaging session.
18th – Alex Clarke + John Hallam – one of the most memorable evenings in 2019 was the first appearance of Alex who was one of this year’s finalists of the BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year. In addition, Alex was winner of the Rising Star category of the British Jazz Awards 2019. A confident multi-instrumentalist on saxophone, flute and clarinet, she appears here with JITS favourite instrumentalist, John Hallam plus Dean Stockdale on piano, Ed Harrison on bass and Jack Coterill on drums. Don’t miss this one! www.alexclarkejazz.co.uk/bio
25th – Hot Club du Nord – our good friends from the North East bring to life the classic 1930s and 40s repertoire of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli’s Hot Club of France. Led by the talented Emma Fisk on violin, add the swinging guitars of Jim Birkett and David Harris plus the inimitable Bruce Rollo on bass. We can promise a real treat for connoisseurs of vintage string jazz.
