Jazz Session - Sound of Blue Note + Support - The sounds of the 50s and 60s Blue Note Records. 7.30pm-midnight • £5 gig only; £14 gig + table & mezze
The monthly jazz sessions at the Bocabar has established itself as the place to be for great food and live jazz. This month we have a double bill featuring the cool music of Blue Note Records and support from local group 'Three Cornered Hat' playing jazz standards.
We are so excited to welcome back one of the most popular groups we have ever had at the Bocabar Jazz Session, ‘The Sound Of Blue Note takes its lead from the greatest jazz recordings on the iconic jazz label. However, this is no slavish copy. The band perform gems from a treasure trove of originals from the likes of Freddie Hubbard, Hank Mobley, Lee Morgan and others but retains an identity, impressively, of its own. Slick ensemble passages alternate with inspired solos to bring this exceptional material very much to life! This may be a celebration of a golden musical age but in a modern and very relevant context.' -Alan Barnes
