CAMERON PIERRE TRIO
CAMERON PIERRE (guitar) ANDERS OLINDER (organ), PIP HARBON (drums)

TOM QUIRKE ROSS WILLIAMS and Guests
TOM QUIRKE (keys), ROSS WILLIAMS (bass), DAMIAN RODD (drums), ROBBIE BUNT (guitar), PAUL HAYWOOD (sax) and more ...

THEO TRAVIS QUARTET
THEO TRAVIS (sax/flute), MIKE OUTRAM (guitar), PETE WHITTAKER (Hammond), ROY DODDS (drums)
‘One of the very best tenor saxophonists of this or any other jazz generation in Britain’ BBC. Theo has appeared on over 75 albums and at Ronnie Scott’s over 70 times. He has worked with Soft Machine Legacy, Robert Fripp, Jim Mullen, Steven Wilson, John Etheridge, and Michael Garrick. ‘Certainly one of the most intelligently accessible players around.’ Venue.
Tues 28 April - £9/£6
with RALPH FREEMAN TRIO
The welcome return of a familiar voice. Jimmy is an extremely versatile singer, as convincing when caressing a ballad as he is belting out a pop hit or Sinatra-style swinger. He also plays a mean saxophone and fronts various bands.
Tues 5 May - £9/£6
TRURO COLLEGE BIG BAND directed by VIV RODD
Two sets from the 14-piece ensemble, sprinkled with numbers from the trio and quartet. Viv’s promised lots of newly arranged and interesting material, so a night of great jazz is in prospect.
Tues 12 May - £9/£6
ASAF SIRKIS TRIO
TASSOS SPILIOTOPOULOS (guitar), YARON STAVI (bass)
Asaf has deservedly earned the reputation as one of the world's finest percussionists and a composer of rigour, wit and delicacy. He’s worked with the likes of Gilad Atzmon, Larry Coryell, Tim Garland, John Law, Nicolas Meier and Norma Winstone.
‘Simply the most sensitive of percussionists’. Chris Parker. ‘Devastatingly creative’. John Fordham.
Tues 19 May - £9/£6
STEVE BUCKLEY(sax) with
RALPH FREEMAN TRIO featuring
& MARCUS VERGETTE (dbass)
Since his early days with Loose Tubes, Steve has worked extensively in contemporary jazz, playing anything from free impro through more straight ahead jazz to traditional African music. He has worked with such greats as John Taylor, Jim Black, Myra Melford, Joseph Jarman, Mark Lockheart’s Big Idea and the BBC award-winning band Big Air. Jonathan Joseph is an extraordinarily talented drummer who has performed with a 'Who's Who' of internationally known artists including: Randy Brecker Bill Evans, Stanley Turentine, Al Jarreau, Pat Metheny, David Sanborn, Yellowjackets and Josef Zawinul.
Tues 26 May - £9/£6
ZOE RAHMAN (piano)
An unmissable gig. Zoe will be playing music by some of her favourite musicians – Abdullah Ibrahim, Duke Ellington, JoAnne Brackeen, Thelonious Monk as well as some of her own compositions and music from her latest album, 'Where Rivers Meet', which features jazz interpretations of Bengali music.
"A remarkable pianist by any standards, Zoe Rahman is quickly becoming an unignorable presence on the British Jazz scene. She can slip from Monkish percussiveness to extreme fragility with assurance, and sustain a mood with the simplest of devices. There are influences of both Middle Eastern and South African music, but her style is distinctively her own." Dave Gelly, The Observer
Tues 2 June - £9/£6
TRURO COLLEGE JAZZ FUNK BAND directed by LARRY JOHNS
The Truro College Jazz/Funk band performed at the 2008 Vienne Jazz Festival. This is what people said: ‘Their capacity to produce such a quality in jazz is really fascinating.’ The Vienne Jazz-Letter. ‘It's really a pleasure to see and hear such talented young students.’ The Jazz'ier Big Band. ‘It would be impossible not to tap your feet whilst this outfit is performing.’ Jazz News. Overheard at the Cybele stage of the Vienne Jazz Festival: ‘These people kick ***!’ (a rough translation from the French!)
Tues 9 June - £9/£6
TREVOR WARREN’S DISASSEMBLER
TREVOR WARREN (guitar), WINSTON CLIFFORD (drums), MARK LOCKHEART (sax), DUDLEY PHILLIPS (dbass), ANNIE WHITEHEAD (trombone)
Exploring the electric guitar, Trevor is attempting to bring together all his many influences, from jazz to rock, drum n bass to hip hop, ambient to thrash. This band is none of these things but a reflection of all. With the undeniable quality of the other musicians, this group has a distinctive and powerful presence, quite unlike anything else around today.
Tues 16 June - £9/£6
11th Anniversary GALA NIGHT
Three bands including Ralph Freeman Trio, Viv Rodd Trio, guests, surprises, buffet.
ADVANCED BOOKING ADVISABLE
Tues 23 June - £9/£6
SARAH GILLESPIE QUARTET
featuring GILAD ATZMON (acc/cla/sx),
BEN BASTIN (dbass), JOSH BLACKMORE (drums)
‘A major new singer songwriter, Sarah Gillespie is one of the most individual yet recognizable voices to emerge in some time’. All About Jazz. ‘Gillespie’s fiery originals offer a contrasting combination of sweet folkish melodies and a lyrically witty, street-talking attitude, that transports Lou Reed and Dylan to multicultural London.’ Jazzwise Magazine.
Tues 30 June - £9/£6
SEB PIPE LIFE EXPERIENCE
ARTHUR LEA (piano), PHIL DONKIN (dbass), GEORGE HART (drums)
A balance between rigorous structural explorations with traditional song-themes, Latin-jazz vivacity, East European folk-forms and bursts of straightahead swing. ‘Flawless technique and witty ideas’. Jazzwise Magazine.
