A happy and jazzy new year to all
Another quarter with an eclectic mix of jazz styles.
The guest bands in this quarter are all fairly local but two of them may be new to many of you.
The Tenement Jazz Band (January 11): based Edinburgh, this band consists of young local musicians who are blazing a trail on the traditional jazz scene in Scotland. The band has appeared at a number of jazz festivals to great acclaim as well as having a residency at the Argyle Bar. The band have a number of videos on You Tube. Have a look and a listen – you will be impressed This will bne the band’s first appearance at the Club so let’s give the band a big welcome – remember, it’s these young guys who are keeping ‘The Music’ alive.
Ken Mathieson’s Classic Jazz Band (February 8): The Classic Jazz Orchestra was formed in 2004 and has gained an enviable reputation for its interpretation of the jazz classics – Jelly Roll, Louis, Duke, Count, Bix and many others. The band is packed with the top Scottish jazz musicians. Ken always gears the evening’s programme to please all the dancers’
The Storyville Jazz Men (April 29): This band is based Dundee and will be making a second visit to the Club. After the band’s first appearance the only question asked afterwards was, ‘When will this band be back’ The band is made up of musicians from the East Coast Jazzmen and Havana Swing. You can bet on an evening of hot jazz played by an excellent band.
If you have never been to the Club or haven’t visited for a while, why not come along one Friday evening and bring your friends. A great place for a social get together.
The Edinburgh Jazz ‘n’ Jive Club is the only club in Edinburgh where you will hear live, traditional jazz. So, come along and help to keep it that way.GO TO OUR WHAT’S ON PAGE TO SEE THE FULL OCTOBER – DECEMBER 2018 PROGRAMME
