The Sound of Blue Note is a quintet haling from Wiltshire who have been making their presence felt in the jazz scene all over the country. Their impressive live shows and authentic style has gained them many accolades from the jazz establishment.
‘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
'I'm always pleased to get a call to play with the Sound of Blue Note. The guys play with energy & commitment & the audiences always seem to love the music!' - Mark Nightingale
We are also featuring the Madelin Veale trio as the support act on the night. Richard Madelin and Terry Veale are two of the best exponents of jazz guitar in the Sound West taking their influence from the legendary Wes Montgomery and Jim Hall. Playing numbers from the Great American Songbook, expect strong melodies, rich harmonies and plenty of swing.
