Wednesday 14/6/17 Duski

***** Jazz Special *****

Aidan Thorne's Duski project has grown over the years both in compositional strength and unity as a coherent playing outfit. Thorne's writing certainly does provide a refreshing repertoire which echoes broad and diverse sources. Duski is a young contemporary band, with plenty to say. Well worth listening to, bringing whatever 'jazz music' is, bang up to date!

Wednesday 2/8/17 Coltrane Dedication

***** Jazz Special *****

South Wales' stalwarts of Ashley John Long (bass), Dave Jones (piano), Ian Poole (drums), Caractacus Downes and Lyndon Owen (Saxophones) are set to give another evening of barnstorming improvisation using some of the great later tunes of Mr John Coltrane as their spring board.
Their appearance last year at the Queens during the Monmouth Festival week went down as one of the great live experiences of the year; power cuts optional!

Wednesday 27/9/17 Örjan Hultén Orion

***** Jazz Special *****

Örjan Hultén, one of Sweden's foremost saxophonists and improvisers, is a musical explorer always looking for the next challenge. In his compositions Örjan Hultén moves effortlessly across boundaries and musical genres. Here and there Middle Eastern and Balkan traits can be heard while one can distinguish traces from Wayne Shorter or Joni Mitchell in other parts. Örjan Hultén Orion is featuring four of Sweden’s top musicians, each of them a wellknown and celebrated musician/bandleader in his own right. This is the first time the quartet is touring the UK. Örjan Hultén – saxophones, Torbjörn Gulz – piano, Filip Augustson – bass, Peter Danemo - drums
”Weighty jazz music of absolute world class.” Svenska Dagbladet
”A proper parade of ensemble playing and composing skills” - Nerikes Allehanda
”a well coherent reflection over contemporary acoustic jazz” – Dagens Nyheter
”his calm and convincing playing in combination with the intensity and power of the tone is strongly impressive” –Orkester Journalen
