Special Concert Tues 8th Jan in tribute to Brian Stanley
Matt Carter and Leigh Coleman Present An evening of Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and George Benson
Special price £5 only
Brian was intrinsic to the Jazz Club. For him, it was a Labour of love. All of his effort and hard work enabled wonderful musicians to come to this small town on the edge of the Atlantic... next stop New York. He loved music and was a great dancer, so kick off your shoes and get moving to this brilliant band - for Brian.
Matt Carter (kbd), Leigh Coleman (voc/gtr), Steve Down (gtr), Tom Drewett (db), Miguel Andrews (dr)
Matt Carter and Leigh Coleman have collaborated together on numerous musical projects in the past 6 years, and this is their most recent endeavour. After the debut outing of the band at St Ives Jazz Club, they look forward to returning for an evening to celebrate Brian Stanley's life. Expect to hear some iconic songs played by some of the finest musicians the South West has to offer.
The rest of the band is made up of Steve Down (guitar), Tom Drewett (bass) and Miguel Andrews (drums). This promises to be an incredibly exciting evening of upbeat and funky music, sung by a man who has one of the finest and most soulful voices around. Led by Matt Carter on the piano, the band put their own unique twist on the songs, but whilst keeping them as soulful and energetic as the originals.

Julian Siegel Quartet
Julian Siegel (sax), Liam Noble (pno) Oli Hayhurst(db), Gene Calderazzo (dms)
With the Julian Siegel Quartet, the BBC Jazz Award winning saxophonist and composer Julian Siegel has chosen to work with some of this generation’s most distinctive voices to create an in-demand Quartet on the UK and European Jazz scene. The band features inspirational pianist Liam Noble, his fluid touch and dazzling imagination perfectly complementing Siegel’s music and playing, and providing a perfect foil for the many directions the music can turn. With the creative spark of dynamic drummer Gene Calderazzo and the deep groove of bassist Oli Hayhurst dove-tailing perfectly with Siegel and Noble this is unquestionably one of the UK’s most exciting and powerful quartets. Following up from their London Jazz Award winning album 'Urban Theme Park' (Basho 2011) the band released their second album 'VISTA' in February 2018 on Whirlwind Recordings. Recorded at Livingston Studios, London it features ten of Julian’s compositions plus an arrangement of Bud Powell's ‘Un Poco Loco’. This new acoustic set of music moves freely through varied sound worlds and colours, from undercurrents of bop to searching ballads and joyful melodies.
