Autumn and Spring programme listing 2018/19

 

 
Friday September 14 2018 7.45  -  Paul Sawtell Quartet

Perhaps better known at the Bonded Warehouse as a fine pianist, Paul leads his quartet on vibraphone with all the virtuostic flair he shows on the piano. The vibraphone brings a different sound and takes jazz into a completely different dimension, conjuring up memories of the signature sound of so many artists – Lionel Hampton, Milt Jackson, the Shearing Quintet and more. With an acute understanding of group interplay the quartet performs a wide repertoire which includes many jazz standards and popular melodies, always interpreted in an impeccable and lyrical style.  

 
Friday October 12 2018 7.45  -  Wendy Kirkland Quartet

Following her successful appearance with Sue McCreeth earlier this year, Wendy returns to the Bonded Warehouse with her quartet as part of her popular Piano Divas tour, honouring the great female pianist/vocalists such as Diana Krall, Blossom Dearie, Nina Simone and many more. The quartet plays predominately straight-ahead jazz standards interspersed with a few originals, all with Wendy's own arrangements and topped with her own distinctive mellow and stylish vocals. With Pat Sprakes on guitar, Paul Jefferies on bass and drummer Stevie Smith.  

 
Friday November 9 2018 7.45  -  Steve King Big Band

The award-winning Steve King Big Band is one of the finest in the West Midlands, with several sell-out appearances at Ronnie Scott's, and numerous prize-winning performances at the annual Musicians' Union Big Band Contest. The band's great appeal is the wide range of musical styles it covers. With a woodwind section that doubles over twenty instruments between them, the band tackles many charts other bands can’t reach! Vocals are in the capable hands of Lynn Dawes who brings a fine singing style to the band’s performances.  

 
Friday December 14 2018 7.45  -  Ralph Allin Quartet

For those who have not witnessed one of his performances, violinist Ralph Allin is a revelation, an artist with the rare ability to combine jaw-dropping virtuosity with universal musical appeal. Ralph’s energetic and innovative arrangements of the great jazz standards provide the perfect backdrop for the quartet’s well-crafted and diverse programme. Fiery gypsy music blends perfectly with infectious Latin rhythms, and 'classical' cadenzas effortlessly segue into Swing - swing with a capital 'S'. As always this will be an entertaining evening with Ralph’s sharp and humorous intros.  

 
Friday January 11 2019 7.45  -  Linda Angelis - Swing to Bossa

Singer/songwriter Linda Angelis has toured extensively worldwide, including a USA tour and concerts at the Clint Eastwood KRML radio station. She has several albums on the recently signed Prestige-Elite label. Linda will be accompanied by a stellar line up making a welcome return to the warehouse with Fred T Baker on guitar, Karen Street on accordion and Nick Twyman on percussion. The band play originals taken from their albums, along with favourite jazz and bossa-nova standards.  

 
Friday February 8 2019 7.45  -  Remi Harris

Remi Harris is one of the UK's brightest up and coming young jazz guitarists. His unique style blends elements from gypsy, swing, jazz, blues, bebop and world music. Remi - named after the second and third notes of the scale - plays an eclectic mix of original compositions, improvisations, jazz standards and new arrangements of music from Django Reinhardt, Jimi Hendrix, Wes Montgomery, Charlie Parker and many more, interspersed with an entertaining commentary about the evolution of jazz guitar styles and the assimilation of the guitar into the field of jazz.
