Here is the (Rest of March) April & May jazz programme for Stratford Jazz


Sun 11 March – Paul Sawtell Quintet – £8 on door (Students ½-price) Paul Sawtell (vibes) Craig Milverton (p) Roy Sainsbury (g) Tom Hill (b) Nick Millward (d). Another chance to see the stunning Paul Sawtell performing on vibes. He appeared on vibes with Tom Hill last year and amazed everyone with his incredible dexterity. Good accessible jazz guaranteed to thrill – how could it be otherwise with such a stellar line-up?! ——————————————————————————– Sun 25 March – Dominic Norcross Quartet – £8 on door (Students ½-price) Dominic Norcross (s) John Davies (g) Steve Tarner (b) Eddie John (d). Dominic Norcross may be a new name to many of the Stratford Jazz fans but make no mistake this musician is up there with the best. The Guardian stated “The Dominic Norcross Quartet is fast becoming a mainstay of the British jazz scene.” Praise indeed! Dominic is equally at home with jazz and blues and has worked with such luminaries as Don Weller and Digby Fairweather. This is an impressive quartet producing excellent arrangements with fresh and inventive solo work. Not to be missed! ——————————————————————————– Sun 1 April – Stekpanna and the Russians – £8 on door (Students ½-price) Steve Kershaw (b) Mads Kjolby (g) Petter Svard (d) Leonid Vintskevitch (p) Nikola Vitskevitch (s)

A welcome return to one of the most popular and truly international bands to visit Stratford Jazz with Russia, Scandinavia and Britain represented. A band which never disappoints with its fresh take on classic jazz standards with some original tunes thrown in. If you enjoy serious jazz with tongue in cheek humour never far away this is an outfit that proves it ca be done. ——————————————————————————– Sun 15 April – Milestones Sextet – Tickets £15 adv. (Students ½-price) The amazing Milestones Sextet which plays the music of Miles Davis is booked at Stratford Jazz with a stellar line-up includes Graham Flowers (trumpet) Alan Barnes (alto & baritone) Ian Price (tenor) Terry Seabrook (piano) Paul Whitten (bass) and Spike Wells (drums). Music will include numbers from the famous Kind of Blue album including, of course, ‘So What?’ Their latest album had a 4-star rating in the Jazzwise Mag., See ‘Reviews’ at: http://www.milestonesjazz.co.uk
