Please note performance start times are brought forward on Fridays

Saturday evenings will continue with a 9pm start and will be admission Free.

Friday 27th March 9.00pm –
Alan Glen Trio £5.00 (£3.00 before 7.30pm)

To describe someone as "A Legend" can mean either a person past their best and living on their laurels or someone who continues to grow. Alan Glen, I'm pleased to say, belongs in this latter category. A pianist who looks to the future without forgetting the past. After his previous appearance at the Jazz Café in August 2014 the burning question was "When are you coming back?"  Lance Liddell, Bebop Spoken Here

Alan Glen- piano; John Pope - double bass; Paul Wight - drums

Saturday 28th March 9.00 pm -
Four on Six. Admission Free

A new departure for Steve Glendinning and Paul Grainger sees them offering a selection of original material and taking the opportunity to explore some lesser spotted standards with the space provided by the duo format.

Steve plays with highly regarded jazz/funk group King Bee and is part of the innovative Diachronix duo with Gabi Heller. Paul can be found in a number of rhythm sections and plays together with Steve in the Debra Milne Ensemble.

Steve Glendinning guitar; Paul Grainger bass
