Jazz at the Bonded Warehouse Programme, autumn/winter 2021/22

The monthly programme of concerts at Jazz at the Bonded Warehouse is now back in full flow with the autumn/winter programme shown below. Following Covid there are some minor changes to the way the concerts are presented. Seating will be set out initially in groups of two and three, but can be rearranged for larger – or smaller - groups. There will be no refreshments served but patrons may bring a moderate amount of refreshments, including alcoholic drinks, for their own consumption during the concert. And finally wearing face-masks will be left to the discretion of attendees. Hand sanitiser dispensers will be available.

 
Friday September 10th 2021 7.45  -  Kim Cypher Band

As one of the UK’s most exciting and popular saxophonists, vocalists and composers, Kim has secured a reputation for top quality, stylish, accessible jazz and musical entertainment. At the start of August she led the Sunday Jazz Lunch session in a sell-out debut at Ronnie Scotts.

Drawn to the raw and earthier side of jazz, Kim studied alongside US saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis and internationally acclaimed jazz saxophonist Andy Sheppard. Her style is best described as funky saxophonist meets 1940's jazz singer. Kim performs an eclectic mix of music spanning many genres with a quirky, jazzy twist together with her own original material, all packaged up in a captivating performance and warm stage presence.

 
Friday October 8th 2021 7.45  -  Chris Gumbley and Al Gurr - Much Ado About Jazz

Much ado About Jazz - an evening of jazz with the irrepressible Chris on saxophones and the quiet genius Al on piano. It’s a show aimed at people who don’t necessarily like jazz – as well as those who do! Responding to claims that much jazz is aloof and lacking in any real melodic content, the duo revisit some much-loved jazz classics and present them with a lot of energy to get the audience involved. If you add to that a large dose of dry humour you’ll hopefully start to get a feel for what the performance is all about.  

 
Friday November 12th 2021 7.45  -  Ralph Allin Trio

Violinist Ralph Allin combines jaw-dropping virtuosity with universal musical appeal, featuring great jazz standards and his own sharp and humorous intros. Described by one leading critic as 'Nigel Kennedy, Stephane Grappelli and Victor Borge rolled into one', Ralph is a violinist that knows no bounds. His virtuosic display, musical versatility and witty presentation make his performances utterly engaging, musically satisfying and uniquely entertaining. From classical cadenzas to fiery gypsy melodies and original arrangements of the great jazz standards, his programme is guaranteed to amaze anyone.  

 
Friday December 10th 2021 7.45  -  Remi Harris Duo

Led by exciting young guitarist Remi Harris on acoustic and electric guitars, the Remi Harris Duo take Gypsy Swing characteristics and infuse them with influences from Jazz, Blues, Rock'n'Roll, Funk and World Music. The duo play an eclectic mix of original compositions, jazz standards and new arrangements of music from Django Reinhardt, Jimi Hendrix, Wes Montgomery, Charlie Parker, Peter Green and more, with an entertaining and enlightening commentary about the evolution of the guitar and jazz, gypsy and blues guitar styles.  

 
Friday January 7th 2022 7.45  -  Devon Harrison's Nice and Easy

The first concert in 2022 features Jazz at the Bonded Warehouse's own Devon Harrison, accompanied by an eclectic group of musicians familiar to the warehouse. The ebullient and ever-popular Devon is one of the most versatile and charismatic jazz singers in the Midlands today, with his rich baritone voice showing controlled power and flexibility in a variety of mid and up-tempo jazz, blues and soul classics. Devon and the band feature songs from Gershwin and the Great American Song Book plus one or two of Devon's, and the audience's, favourite jazz standards and ballads.

 
Friday February 11th 2022 7.45  -  Andy Derrick Jazz Quartet

Bristol-born but Birmingham based, Andy is one of the Midland’s finest trombonists, performing with UK jazz greats such as Dennis Rollins, Alan Barnes and Mark Nightingale, and with top big bands including The BBC Big Band, NYJO and Fat Chops Big Band. In 2005 Andy received the Don Lusher Best Trombone Award in the BBC Big Band Contest. Andy leads his superb quartet through their repertoire which ranges from classic swing era and Broadway tunes to exciting Bebop numbers and the urbane sounds of ‘cool’ jazz. Andy favours a smooth, round, fluent tone and describes his quartet's music as being 'too modern for trad, too mainstream for modern' which seems to sum up his approach nicely. With Mike Kemp (piano), Thomas Pedersen (double bass) and Fred Claridge (drums).
