Seven Jazz have a busy weekend ahead with not one but two gigs by award-winning groups.
On Saturday 19th October, Seven Jazz welcomes back audience favourites The Impossible Gentlemen.
...[they]were recently voted “Best jazz group 2013” in the
Parliamentary Jazz awards. Inspirational, dazzling, melodically
enthralling music from two of the UK’s finest musicians with two great
stars of the US jazz scene. Multi award winning pianist Gwilym Simcock
has been named checked as a "genius" by no less Chick Corea. Mike
Walker is one of Europe's most exciting guitarists and a big favourite
of the Leeds audience. Steve Rodby has been the bassist with the Pat
Metheny Group for the past 30 years. Drummer Adam Nussbaum’s work with
Michael Brecker won him a Grammy in 1988.
This gig will take place at Seven Arts, Harrogate Road, Chapel Allerton
On Sunday 20th October, Seven teams up with Leeds University in a joint promotion at Clothworkers Hall in Leeds featuring pianist Zoe Rahman.
Zoe is one of the brightest stars on the contemporary
jazz scene -a vibrant and highly individual pianist/composer with a
style deeply rooted in jazz yet reflecting her classical background, her
British/Bengali heritage and her very broad musical taste. Having
played sell-out shows this year with her Kindred Spirits album, pianist
Zoe Rahman has just won Best Jazz Act in the prestigious 2012 MOBO
This gig will take place between 3pm and 5pm at Clothworkers Hall, Cavendish Road,
