Preview - Jazz at the Grove

I caught up with Jazz at the Grove Inn to check out the Autumn 2013 listings:

Oct 27th:
Dee Byrne
Heavy grooves juxtaposed with outbreaks of swing, tight arrangements framing open-ended improvisation and abstract harmony mixed with melodic departures.
Sax: Dee Byrne
Trumpet: TBC
Piano: Rebecca Nash
Bass: Paul Baxter
Drums: Matt Fisher

Nov 10th: Alec Robinson Group Stirring and lyrical melodies, a mixture of striking original compositions with influences of John Taylor and Kenny Wheeler, and arrangements of both well-known standards.

Nov 24th:
Matt Anderson Quartet
Original music played with a unified ensemble sound and shared musical vision. Smooth and fluid writing with a contemporary twist.
Matt Anderson: sax
Jiannis Pavlidis: Guitar
Simon Read: Bass
Sam Gardner: Drums

Dec 8th:
Stuart McCallum
Manchester guitarist Stuart McCallum returns to the Grove Inn. Featuring Stuarts own music which incorporates interesting timbres and effects created on his guitar and multitude of pedals.

So if your around Leeds on these dates there is some great music going to be played
