René Marie  |  October 13 2017 - 22:30

Venue : Ronnie Scott's, London

Most jazz artists think of their world in terms of blue – the space on the musical palette where melancholy and cool often converge. But for singer-songwriter and vocalist René Marie, the musical experience conjures a much different hue – one that evokes an entirely different and sometimes less comfortable range of emotions. The Sound of Red features René with two thirds of her longstanding trio – bassist Elias Bailey and co-producer, drummer Quentin Baxter, both of whom have been a part of her backup crew for fifteen years.

Roy Hargrove Quintet  |  October 14 2017 - 20:30

Venue : Bimhuis, Amsterdam

American trumpet player Roy Hargrove is famous for his impressive tone, finding his way in every genre. Jazz and bop are important factors in his music, which often diverges surprisingly towards funk, hip-hop and latin. Roy Hargrove started his career at a very young age playing with Wynton Marsalis and he soon chose his own path. Aside from his solo-career he has made remarkable guest appearances on albums by Erykah Badu, D’Angelo and John Mayer.

Nancy Harms  |  October 19 2017 - 20:00

Venue : Jazzhus Montmartre, Copenhagen

Nancy Harms is one of the most exciting vocalists on the New York jazz scene. She sings with a rare authenticity and a silk smooth voice, which spans wide and balances between the introvert and fragile to the outgoing and theatrical. Her latest album, "Ellington At Night" has received very good reviews with Downbeat Magazine praising its superb arrangements as well as Nancy Harm's special voice and style. She will be accompanied by Peter Rosendal on the piano, Graig Earle on the bass and Janus Templeton on the drums.

Craig Taborn Quartet  |  October 19 2017 - 20:30

Venue : Bimhuis, Amsterdam

According to its label ECM, dynamism and spectral ambience with acoustic and electric sounds, groove and lingering melody all come together to animate Daylight Ghosts. Pianist Craig Taborn is being hailed as a ‘visionary of the current wave’ (Downbeat) because of his intriguing style of playing, equally influenced by jazz, contemporary classical and electronic music. In his band he performs with like-minded trailblazers: saxophone and clarinet player Chris Speed, bassist Chris Lightcap and drummer Dave King (The Bad Plus).

Kishon Khan & Lokkhi Terra  |  October 20 2017 - 19:30

Venue : PizzaExpress, London

From the Melas of Bangladesh to the streets of Havana, via some districts in Lagos and on to a bustling club in London, Lokkhi Terra is the flagship of London's multicultural music landscape; Kishon Khan’s keyboards and artistic direction allows the Bangladeshi traditional music to meld with his Cuban rhythm section. From ages-old Bangladeshi folk songs in funked-up cha-cha-cha arrangements, to Palmieri-style salsa played in non-Western scales, Lokkhi Terra have found a recipe that blends Latin, Afrobeat, jazz, dub and all manner of other elements.

Joshua Redman Trio  |  October 31 2017 - 22:15

Venue : Ronnie Scott's, London

Joshua Redman is one of the most acclaimed and charismatic jazz artists to have emerged in the decade of the 1990s. Born in Berkeley, California, he is the son of legendary saxophonist Dewey Redman and dancer Renee Shedroff. He was exposed at an early age to a variety of musics (jazz, classical, rock, soul, Indian, Indonesian, Middle-Eastern, African) and instruments (recorder, piano, guitar, gatham, gamelan), and began playing clarinet at age nine before switching to what became his primary instrument, the tenor saxophone.
