Jeff Lorber Fusion

Friday 20th June : Dylan Thomas Centre 9.30pm Keyboards - Jeff Lorber, Bass – Jimmy Haslip Sax – Eric Marienthal, Drums – Sony Emory By the late 1970s, trailblazing keyboardist, composer producer Jeff Lorber had become a prominent figure in the new movement known as jazz-fusion – a marriage of traditional jazz with elements of rock, R&B, funk and other electrified sounds. His latest recording, Hacienda, revisits a sound he helped pioneer. Lorber’s music reaches a new level by crystallizing jazz, funk, and Latin rhythms with some killer melodies. Obviously, time spent touring together has made Lorber, Haslip and Marienthal into a tight unit, which is evident from this latest recording.

Shakatak

Sunday 22nd June : Dylan Thomas Centre 8.30pm

Mention the words jazz-funk and there’s really only one name that springs to mind – Shakatak! The multi-talented quartet exploded onto the UK music scene right at the start of the 80’s encapsulated the sound of the decade and gave birth to Britfunk! The fact that they are still enjoying global success to this day is a testament to the unique space the band fills.

The Laurence Cottle All Star Big Band - ‘A Tribute to Jaco’ The first time this music was heard was in the 2011 London Jazz Festival, and marked the 60th anniversary of Jaco’s birth. This gig marks a quarter century since his death. The band regularly packs out Ronnie Scotts Club in London and with an All star 17 piece stellar line up of musicians including Nigel Hitchcock. Sammy Mayne, Alex Garnett, Mark Nightingale, Pat White, Andy Greenwood you know why! Laurence has been living with this music and transcribing it during most of his professional life. His first awareness of Pastorius was via the American bassist’s eponymous 1976 album on CBS. “I’d started in music playing jazz trombone, switched to bass, and had mostly listened to rock bass players. Hearing that first album completely changed the way I approached the instrument.” Laurence met Jaco for the first time in Boston after his last gig with Weather Report. He hung out a little bit with him then, and later in New York. Book early, tickets are limited! Tickets £22

RUBY TURNER and her band

Ruby Turner was born in Jamaica and grew up in Montego Bay. Her Grandfather sang the lead in one of the Island's Gospel Groups. Moving to England when she was 9, Ruby has lived here ever since. "Soul, Gospel, and R&B : Ruby Turner is truly the genuine article. Blessed with a voice that can breathe life and meaning into any song, whether it be a passionate ballad or a fast groove" - The Guardian Her career to date has always had many unexpected twists and turns with major tours, theatre and TV appearances, and touring with Jools Holland, the future continues to look positive. On 4 June 2012 Ruby performed 'You Are So Beautiful' with Jools Holland at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert outside Buckingham Palace in London. In autumn 2012 Ruby was a guest judge on BBC 'The Choir: Sing While You Work with choirmaster Gareth Malone' and in 2013 Ruby was a guest judge on BBC 'Songs of praise gospel choirs competition. Her major break came in the mid 1980's, when she was asked to join 'Culture Club' at the height of their stardom. Ruby very quickly learned how to deal with the routine of gruelling tour schedules, living out of a suit case and performing to vast sell-out audiences. An offer of a solo record deal closely followed and she soon signed to Jive Records, part of the Zomba Group. Four albums and a "Best of" Compilation Album were all released to critical acclaim over the next few years making Ruby a household name.

CHRIS INGHAM The jazz of Dudley Moore

CHRIS INGHAM piano PAUL HIGGS trumpet   GEOFF GASCOYNE bass  GEORGE DOUBLE drums Dudley Moore, beloved comic actor, we all know about. Perhaps fewer know about Dudley Moore, pianist — the virtuoso exploiting the stylistic possibilities gifted to him by Errol Garner and Oscar Peterson in late night sessions at Peter Cook’s Club in 1960s Soho, dazzling appearances on BBC TV’s Not Only But Also and the sparkling Decca trio recordings. And perhaps fewer still, Dudley Moore, composer — purveyor of quirky, imaginative jazz originals and the witty music for Bedazzled and 30 Is A Dangerous Age, Cynthia, nuanced movie scores far superior to the movies themselves. For all the acclaim he received as a comic actor, and the affection with which he is remembered as a hilarious and lovable personality, it may be that the most interesting thing about Dudley Moore's reputation is how undervalued he is as a jazzman and composer. It's easy to see why. In the 60s, jazz got edgier and angrier, the Dudley Moore Trio popping up on primetime TV with their slick, upbeat take on the Oscar/Erroll tradition hardly represented the hip forefront of what jazz was 'about'. And if a musician had any kind of showbiz profile - and goodness did Dudley have one of those - lack of jazz credibility was probably an inevitable side-effect.

We've been talking about it for years and finally, just over a year ago we decided to start putting it together. It was important to get a diverse mix of players.

Legendary UK guitarist JIM MULLEN Mamma Mia's Restaurant, Princess Way, Swansea SA1 3LW Tickets Includes a 2 Course Supper selection. Jim Mullen relocated to London in 1969, joined Pete Brown's Piblokto!, and then signed on with Brian Auger's Oblivion Express, cementing his credentials in the nascent jazz-rock culture. Stints with Vinegar Joe and Kokomo followed, and in the early 1970s he also collaborated with Duncan and Ball in their blue-eyed funk unit the Average White Band. Via the AWB, Mullen met Dick Morrissey, a veteran of the much-respected jazz-rock vehicle If. In 1977, they teamed as a duo for Up, embracing everything from bop to pop to funk and found favor with listeners on both sides of the jazz-rock dyad via acclaimed efforts such as 1979's Cape Wrath. In all, Morrissey and Mullen co-headlined six albums, which increasingly veered towards the mainstream, but never earned the American commercial foothold that would have vaulted their career to the next level. Tickets available from St James Club every Wednesday. Tickets/Tocynnau £20 or online at www.swanseajazzland.co.uk **JAZZLAND MEMBERS have a £2.50 discount off the full ticket Price.

Swansea Jazzland September - December 2017 4 Wednesday Dydd Mercher - 20:30 - 23:00 The 'Clarinet Maestros'

Clarinet duels have frequently been fought by the top players throughout the history of jazz, perhaps not so much a fight, but more in a challenge to mimic, to blend together and maybe out-do each other in terms of ideas, technique, phrasing and stamina. This concert puts together the best in the UK and the best in the USA. Ken  Peplowski was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1958.  He started playing clarinet and tenor saxophone at school from a very young age, and was soon playing in local stage bands, having been influenced strongly by listening to the great names of the jazz world, in particular Benny Goodman, Jimmy Dorsey, Jimmy Noone, Coleman Hawkins, Zoot Sims and Sonny Stitt.  Julian Stringle was a child prodigy reed player. He was educated at the Latymer School and the London College of Music where he studied Clarinet with Wilf Keeley and Composition with William Lloyd Webber. Julian made his TV debut with Acker Bilk when he was just 14.  Tickets Tocynnau £12 : Members Aelodau £9 : Students Myfyrwyr £6

Gilad Atzmon & The Orient House Ensemble

Gilad Atzmon – tenor & soprano sax, clarinet, bass clarinet Frank Harrison – piano  Yaron Stavi – acoustic bass Enzo Zirilli – drums. Marking fifty years without John Coltrane, Gilad Atzmon & The Orient House Ensemble attempt to reflect upon the beauty of the man’s music. John Coltrane was the most influential tenor saxophonist in jazz history. Whether it is his patented sheets of sound, his rapid-fire improvisations, the advanced harmonic progressions, the sonic impact of the best jazz quartet ever or his lush interpretations of the most beautiful ballads, no aspiring music lover can afford to neglect the music of Trane. But Coltrane is far greater than the sum of his outstanding musical achievements. He was a voice of a generation, an artistic revolutionary spirit, a man who transformed anger into love and plight into a humanist message. Coltrane is for us jazz at its best: an authentic creative wave of constant transformation and innovation. Trane is for us, first and foremost, a spirit.

Throughout their 31 year career Shakatak have released over 50 CDs plus 3 DVDs and most of the band’s extensive back catalogue is now available world-wide on iTunes. The band consists of the four original members: Bill Sharpe (keyboards), Jill Saward (lead vocals, percussion & flute), Roger Odell (drums) & George Anderson (bass guitar). The band is augmented with Jacqui Hicks [backing vocals & Sax) and Alan Wormald (guitar) producing a musically dynamic and entertaining show from the 6 piece line-up.

04 Wednesday - 20:30 - 23:00 Hopkins / Hammond Trio Matt Hopkins - guitar Scott Hammond - drums Ruth Hammond - Organ The classic jazz formation known as the ‘Organ Trio’ may be a new concept to you. If so, you will probably be delighted to know that it is not three organs but rather one organ (usually a Hammond organ), guitar and drums - three instruments that blend together to create a unique sound that can be very subtle or very powerful and everything in between. Formed on a rare sunny day in Bristol, UK in 2016, this organ trio knew they were on to a winner after the first tune they played together. There is an undeniable chemistry between the three of them that is evident in everything they play. This could be well known jazz standards, tunes by the likes of John Scofield and Pat Metheny or the trio’s own compositions. Adult Full £12.50 : Jazzland Member 2019 £10 : Students £7

Stan is pictured at the Brangwyn Hall Swansea with saxophonist Bobby Wellins. We recreate that concert from 50 years ago in Swansea, PLUS ‘A Child’s Christmas in Wales, with Stan’s son Clark Tracey and his all star London based Quintet, along with Stan’s Grandson Ben narrating! Performed at the Garage Music venue, just a stones throw from Dylan’s Birthplace! The quartet features original members Simon Allen on tenor, Andrew Cleyndert on bass, Clark Tracey on drums, narration by Ben Tracey and the piano chair is taken by Bruce Boardman, a Tracey and Monk specialist who fits the bill perfectly.
