WE ARE THE VORTEX JAZZ CLUB

 


Greetings, Supporters and Friends!

 

Get ready for drummer and percussionist Will Glaser - he with the great beard - will be performing tonight with Matthew Herd (sax/piano) and Alex Bonney (trumpet) to mark the latest installment of Climbing in Circles. Both Parts 3 and 4 are in the Bandcamp section below. You can also read about the ideas and intentions behind Glaser’s Climbing in Circles project

 

Jumping to Wednesday, join us for a quartet led by award-winning trumpeter and composer Hugh Pascall who will be performing music from his debut album Borderlands. Influenced by Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, Tom Harrell, Coltrane and Miles, Hugh’s music is lyrical, a vibrant and modern approach to post-bop jazz. It’s straight-ahead jazz with melody and swing. Modal explorations are complimented by expressive ballads rich in harmony and character. With top musicians Liam Dunachie (piano/rhodes), Oli Hayhurst (bass) and Jay Davis (drums), this evening will delight and leave you on a high. Don’t miss out on this experience!

 

Thursday celebrating Huw Warren’s sixtieth birthday the original members of the band Perfect House Plants are assembling for a special one-off. In the past, this innovative jazz group worked with Django Bates, Kenny Wheeler, Billy Cobham and Radiohead, but they were known for their unique colourful compositions that established them as an adventurous yet accessible group on the cutting edge of European music. The Perfect House Plants quartet are Mark Lockheart (saxes), Huw Warren (piano), Dudley Philips (acoustic/electric bass) and Martin France (drums).

 

That completes the run down for the weekend and coming week. We hope to see you upstairs soon!

 

Stay safe and well,
The Vortex Team
