A message from our Patron

It is a privilege, as patron, to be able to write this foreword for the inaugural Swansea International Jazz Festival. My first forays into the music profession were in jazz, a genre that is very close to my heart. Dave Cottle, with sterling support from Berry Ray, have worked tirelessly in bringing off this major coup in Swansea, in what we hope will be the first of many such annual events. Swansea Jazzland, run by Dave with Berry’s help, has long been the favoured jazz venue for UK musicians, so it is fitting that their efforts have now metamorphosed into a festival of this great musical art.

A special thank you is due to the Arts Council of Wales, Swansea City Council and local business sponsors Prescott Jones Insurance and DJM Solicitors for their financial assistance. Their support has meant that many performances and workshops included in the Festival’s 50 events are free to attend.

Dr. Karl Jenkins CBE B.Mus FRAM LRAM


Welcome from Dave Cottle

5

In launching the first Swansea International Jazz Festival we are proud to present 50 musical events in venues within the beautiful Swansea Maritime Quarter. We hope you enjoy the variety and diversity of the jazz throughout the weekend and take away the experience of some memorable performances. Thanks to the financial support from our sponsors & partners we have been able to produce a programme featuring world class jazz performers, whilst offering opportunities to our local based bands and musicians to perform at the festival. It is anticipated that the festival will continue on an annual basis and become a part of the City of Swansea’s musical culture. I look forward to seeing you during the Festival weekend, and at Swansea Jazzland where we continue to present the best of international & UK based jazz musicians on a weekly basis.

Dave Cottle Creative Director

UK 1980s big band. He was a key member of the headlining Bheki Mseleku Band, featuring drummer Marvin ‘Smitty’ Smith. He also featured as a soloist and composer in Django Bates’ Delightful Precipice. He leads his own bands “Eddie Parker Quartet” featuring the amazing Kit Downes on piano;

EDDIE PARKER QUARTET Dylan Thomas Theatre 7pm Eddie Parker. Flute, bass flute, piano, keyboards, composer, bandleader, educator. Eddie has been central to some of the most important British jazz in recent years. He was a founder member of and an important composer for Loose Tubes, the legendary

The Eddie Parker Group has also recorded two albums “Transformations of the Lamp” and “Everything you do to me” on FMR. Currently Eddie is working as keyboard player and composer with Will Gregory Moog Ensemble, as well as on various recording, performance, composition and educational projects. Eddie’s Quartet features includes Matt Robinson, piano and James Maddren on drums.

Ever-popular Alan Barnes opens the festival with the straight-ahead hard bop quintet he’s been leading with Bruce Adams for 20 years! A repertoire from the classic years of bop with an emphasis on accessibility, good humour and a conviction that jazz should swing. Barnes has dominated the saxophone and clarinet section of the British jazz awards throughout the ‘90s and beyond and is often to be seen compering as well as performing at major jazz festivals. Bruce Adams (Trumpet and Flugelhorn): Not only is Bruce one the jazz scene’s most dramatic and stimulating performers, he is also a tremendously affable companion. A band-room with the Glaswegian Mr. Adams present is a happy and riotous place.

Bruce cut his musical teeth on solid commercial work – on cruise liners, in dance halls, music halls, and even worked in support of comedy legends like, Tony Hancock and Freddie Starr. He has been a regular jazz poll-winner and with his spectacular range and power on the instrument has been in demand as a lead, and jazz trumpet man. Bruce has often worked as a special guest soloist with both the Scottish Radio Orchestra and the BBC Big Band.

WORKSHOPS Saxophonist Alan Barnes & trumpeter Bruce Adams are running a jazz workshops on Saturday 21st June at 10:30am. See page 15 for full details.

JEFF LORBER’s FUSION Dylan Thomas Centre 9:30pm 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. Lorber and his band, the Jeff Lorber Fusion, first honed their craft in the Portland, Oregon club scene and rapidly expanded their reach to a national and international audience via a combination of complex harmonies, unconventional time signatures and compelling rhythms. In subsequent years, Lorber dropped the term “fusion” from his billing as the movement evolved into what is currently known as contemporary jazz. Still, he continued to explore the innovative, improvisational potential of grafting other musical forms to the jazz idiom.

More than three decades after his earliest recordings, Lorber has come full circle. His new recording, Hacienda, released August 2013, revisits a sound he helped pioneer. Co-produced by Lorber and bassist/composer Jimmy Haslip, Hacienda also features saxophonist Eric Marienthal, a longtime collaborator with Lorber and his collective. Other guests include premier jazzrock violinist Jean-Luc Ponty, drummers Vinnie Colaiuta and Dave Weckl, and an impressive cadre of other stellar players. Lorber’s music reaches a new level by crystallizing jazz, funk, and Latin rhythms with some killer melodies that will certainly translate to live performance. Obviously, time spent touring together has made Lorber, Haslip and Marienthal into a tight unit, which is evident from this latest recording.

MATTHEW FORD & HIS TRIO The Ocean Room National Waterfront Museum 9:30pm Matthew Ford - Vocals Paul Sawtell - Piano Neil Bullock - Drums Percy Pursglove - Bass Matthew Ford is widely regarded as the finest big band singer in the UK, performing for 5 years with the multiaward winning Syd Lawrence Orchestra.

Orchestras, and has also worked with the Northern Sinfonia, City of Birmingham Symphony, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Halle and Philharmonia Orchestras.As a big band vocalist Matthew is always in demand, working with the BBC Big Band, Grammy nominated John Wilson Orchestra and many others including the Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra. Matthew has been invited to perform for both domestic and international royalty, as well as for celebrity weddings and parties. In 2009 Matthew broadcast with the BBC Big Band for the 30th Anniversary of BBC Radio 2’s ‘Big Band Special’ programme. His appearances with the RTE Concert Orchestra are regularly broadcast on RTE 1 and Lyric FM throughout Eire, whilst his album recordings have aired across the UK on Radio 2.

The Midland Youth Jazz Orchestra is now widely acclaimed as one of the U.K’s top big bands. Its reputation has been founded on a consistently high quality of performance over two decades. In addition, audiences find they are infected by the enjoyment, which band members bring to performances, and the excitement, which the band generates. These qualities have helped bring the band success in the BBC National Big Band Competition along with being a winner in the Dutch National Big Band Competition, beating adult bands from The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. MYJO has toured extensively, performing at the world famous Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, visiting

the USSR and appearing on national TV and performing in Moscow and Odessa. It has also performed in the USA including Disneyworld as well as across Europe. Among the other famous venues in which the band has performed are Ronnie Scott’s Club in London, the Royal Albert Hall, the Royal Festival Hall, the Barbican, and the Symphony Hall in Birmingham. MYJO has featured in concert with many famous names from the musical world, including Benny Carter, John Dankworth, Bobby Shew, Arturo Sandoval, Bob Florence, Stan Tracey, Jools Holland, and

TV chat show host, Michael Parkinson. Many players from MYJO have entered the music profession, and some are becoming well known in their own right. Among these is the now internationally famous trombonist, Mark Nightingale. Several former members of MYJO play regularly for top bands like the BBC Radio Big Band, SLO, Robbie Williams Big Band. The repertoire of the orchestra is intentionally very broad, and covers virtually the whole period of big band music.

Saturday 21st June SEVEN STEPS TO HEAVEN DICK PEARCE QUARTET The Ocean Room National Waterfront Museum 2pm

REMI HARRIS TRIO Dylan Thomas Theatre 12:30pm Remi Harris is an exciting young guitarist and composer. He is widely regarded as one of the UK’s Top Gypsy Jazz Guitarists and has performed at Buckingham Palace and Live on BBC Radio 2. The Remi Harris Trio are an Exciting Young Contemporary Gypsy Jazz Group featuring the Guitar of Remi Harris. They take Traditional Gypsy Jazz and Swing Characteristics and Infuse them with influences from Bebop, Blues, Rock, World Music, Contemporary Jazz and Popular Melodies for performances that Mesmerize and Inspire every time.

More than any other British jazz trumpeter, Pearce probably deserves the mantle of heir to Jimmy Deuchar, offering a style that contains a fractured lyricism reminiscent of his forebear. Pearce began his career as a military band musician and subsequently emerged in the 1970s from one of the earliest editions of that ongoing jazz dynasty, the National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO). Pearce was notable for being the kind of straight ahead player who might well have appeared on the London jazz scene twenty years earlier.

The Music of Victor Feldman He has a sophisticated command of harmonic improvising, although, as with his self-confessed (and disparate) trumpet heroes Chet Baker, Art Farmer and Don Cherry - his playing comes across as anything but contrived.

Dylan Thomas Centre 3:30pm

Dick had a lengthy association with Ronnie Scott which lasted from the 1970s until Scott’s health forced him to abandon performing in the mid-1990s, and some of his best recorded work can be found on the CD Never Pat A Burning Dog (Jazz House, 1990), where his solos contrast admirably with Scott’s more forthright contributions, and contain a heat and urgency never far beneath the cool surface.

A revered UK export to the USA way back in the 50s, Victor Feldman made a telling contribution to jazz history with Miles Davis, composing the classic Seven Steps to Heaven, as well as playing with the likes of Cannonball Adderley and Woody Herman. Paying tribute to a brilliant pianist, percussionist and composer are an ‘A’ list of British jazz musicians.

He formed a group with Malcolm Duncan and Roger Ball (later of the Average White Band) and they worked throughout Scotland playing Coltrane tunes and originals. It was in this group that he started attracting attention and in 1969 he moved to London, going on to work in the groups of Pete Brown, Brian Auger, Vinegar Joe and Kokomo.

As a sideman he is in demand by visiting U.S. stars like Gene Harris, Mose Allison, Jimmy Smith, Weldon Irvine, Percy Sledge, Teddy Edwards, Plas Johnson, Jimmy Witherspoon, and Terry Callier.

BASS GUITAR WORKSHOP : with LAURENCE COTTLE The Dylan Thomas Centre 10:30am

Growing up in a house full of music Claire Martin was born to sing. She loved Judy Garland but it was hearing Ella Fitzgerald’s legendary Song Books that changed her life inspiring her to go to Stage School and then to study singing in London and New York. When she saw the great improvising singer Betty Carter at Ronnie Scott’s. It confirmed what she already felt – she had to be a jazz singer. Claire formed her first quartet with guitar legend Jim Mullen and her break came when renowned Scottish jazz label Linn signed her in 1991, the start of a creative relationship that is still going strong today.

PROTECT THE BEAT The Dylan Thomas Centre 3:45pm If you loved the sax/guitar jazz funk band Morrisey Mullen, danced to the Average White Band, got on down to the Brecker Brothers, or were transfixed by the Yellowjackets – then Protect the Beat will blow you away. They take all those influences and create their own unique instrumental Jazz/Funk/Fusion for the new century. The line-up is five of the finest Jazz Funk experts you are likely to find! Based in London, the band has been described in the music press as “the strongest live act within the genre in the UK at this time.” Derek Nash - sax - consistently voted one of the top sax men in the country, he is a featured soloist with the Jools Holland Rhythm and Blues Orchestra, leads the British Jazz Award-winning Sax Appeal and is currently on tour with rock legend, Jack Bruce. Winston Blissett - Bass (Massive Attack, Jeff Lorber) Tim Cansfield - guitar (Steve Winwood, Bee Gees, Annie Lennox, Ray Charles) Arden Hart - keys and trumpet (Bootsy Collins, Massive Attack Darby Todd - drums (Justin Hawkins, Rick Parfitt Jnr, Buddy Whittington, Dennis Rollins) With numerous festival appearances over the years, including Brecon, Marlborough, Mumbles, Pontypool and The Capitol Jazz Festival (USA), PTB has certainly left an impression with their inimitable brand of high energy Jazz/Funk. To quote the title of their debut album, “It ain’t Dinner Jazz”.

HUW WARREN TRIO The Dylan Thomas Theatre 5:30pm Huw Warren is one of the UK’s leading composer/pianists, whose unique approach combines improvisation with folk, world and new music influences.

Sunday 20 22nd June

SHAKATAK The Dylan Thomas Centre 8:30pm Shakatak have enjoyed a level of success and career longevity rarely paralleled in contemporary music – but then Shakatak is a particularly unusual group. Because of the nature of their music, their fan base is one that is far reaching while always retaining an ‘underground element’. This paradox sees the band, who are known primarily as serious jazz/funk musicians, enjoying both high ‘cult’ status and instant recognition as a household name.

STEVE WHITE’s TRIO VALORE The Ocean Room, National Waterfront Museum 5:30pm Formed originally from Paul Weller’s formidable live band of the mid 2000s the Trio’s original line up featured Steve White on drums (The Style Council, Paul Weller, Oasis, Dr John, The Who) and original Ocean Colour Scene founder Damon Minchella on bass with Seamus Beaghan on Hammond organ. After releasing a widely acclaimed album in 2008, the Trio toured the UK and Europe playing festivals and live shows extensively through 2009. In 2013 the band were asked to reform for the 10th anniversary of Italian label Record Kicks and started off in Naples with their new line up, featuring Manchester based rising star Justin Shearn (Sam Gray) on keyboards. Since the debut Italian shows the band have gone from strength to strength with a diary of live shows that stretches into 2014. Trio Valore features some of the best musicians this country has to offer, with drummer Steve White voted by readers of Rhythm magazine in their top poll of all time drummers and with Damon Minchella in partnership have played in some of the most influential bands and recordings of the last 20 years.

After a number of successful top-twenty singles in the UK, the band went on to score unprecedented international success with the release of the classic ‘Nightbirds’ recording and the title track has now become a standard in the popular music repertoire. This success was repeated with the topten hit “Down on the Street” and the award-winning video established the band’s personnel of Jill Saward (lead vocs), Bill Sharpe (keys), Keith Winter (gtr), George Anderson (bass) and Roger Odell (drums). With the magic Al Jarreau/Shakatak combination,the group went on to record the track ‘Day by Day’ to further international acclaim. Along with this successful recording career, Shakatak had firmly established themselves as a vibrant live act, combining astute musicianship with a sense of fun that communicated strongly with world-wide audiences. Their performance in Japan’s Budoken Hall won them a Silver Award at the Tokyo International Song Festival-other awards include the ‘Best Instrumental Album’ for 6 consecutive years-and other live concerts of note have been the East meets the West Border Concert at the time of German re-unificationin 1989 and the open air concert in Cape Town for the Millennium Celebrations 2000 where they played in front of 250,000 people. The long run of continuous success was brought to a halt when guitarist Keith Winter became seriously ill and was forced to stop playing. It took Keith a long while to redirect his energies but he is now a very successful website designer and remains very much a part of the Shakatak team by designing and maintaining the www.shakatak.com website. Eventually the band re-organised and the remaining four members now augment their live shows with Jacqui Hicks (b.vocs, sax & flute) or Debby Bracknell (b.vocs & flute) and Alan Wormald (gtr & b.vocs). “This music still glows as brightly as that first hearing...Shakatak aren’t just a band, they were the soundtrack to our lives” RONNIE SCOTT’S House Magazine (UK) “A wild diversity seldom found anymore... tons of rhythmic and stylistic variety...slamming” JAZZIZ Magazine (USA)

It was back in the late 50’s when I would be going along every week to the Glanmor Club. Maurice Levenson, who was better known as Schmoo to everyone was one of the driving forces getting the club going along with Swansea musicians, Derek Morgan, Russ Jones and John Ham. I remember watching John Ham playing trumpet in his RAF uniform when home on leave! The local musicians would be the backbone of the club and would be joined by guest musicians. One regular throughout the 60’s and for many years to come was saxophonist Danny Moss with his wife, vocalist, Jeannie Lamb. Danny’s son, Danny Moss junior is a fine double bass player now resident in Australia, and on visits to the UK plays at Swansea Jazzland. The Glanmor Club even hosted Amen Corner for their debut gig, but sadly ran into financial trouble in the late 60’s and the club had to close. The jazz club continued though with a move to the Liberal Club and has been the home of weekly jazz sessions in Swansea for around 45 years. Throughout the 70’s and 80’s pianist Russ Jones and drummer Derek Morgan provided the bedrock of the club as it continued to host international jazz artists such as Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Tal Farlow and Benny Carter amongst many others. The club became Swansea Jazzland in the 1990’s and the Liberal Club became the St James Club around about the same time. Pianist Dave Cottle began arranging the programme of events as he does today. The quality of weekly jazz is as high as it has ever been in Swansea. It is great to see that jazz music is still so popular and wonderful that such large audiences come along to the St James Club every Wednesday night. Walter Stuckey.
