Festival President - Paul Rigby’s Message

Once again the Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues Festival is here! The team has been working hard to programme a festival with a plethora of styles to whet the appetite of the audience. There is something here for everyone from top UK headline bands, to fringe gigs, some genuine Blues, Street Jazz and workshops from incredible musicians. The committee has once more raised the game to bag some fabulous headline artists. On Saturday, the National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO) will reveal the talents of some of the UK’s top young jazz players. On Sunday, one of Britain’s leading trombonists Dennis Rollins performs with his Velocity Trio. His CV reads like a who’s who in the musical fraternity, playing with the likes of Jamiroquai, Maceo Parker, Dionne Warwick and Sting. Then the great Snake Davis - ex Eurythmics and M People - will be showing

off his exceptional prowess on the saxophone with his own band. As usual there is much happening around the town and it is pretty much wall-to-wall music from start to finish. In my third year as festival president I am delighted and proud to be involved with this dedicated group of volunteers whose continued enthusiasm for this jazz festival must be commended! Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues is definitely in safe hands and this is a festival that delivers the very best in musical entertainment and value for money. Paul J Rigby - Festival President, Musical Director for Blackburn with Darwen Music Service, Band Leader - Northern Jazz Orchestra Musical Director - Lancashire Schools Jazz Orchestra, Big Band Project leader - Ribble Valley Jazz Collective.

Welcome to our 5th Annual Jazz Festival Yes! Over the May Day Bank Holiday Weekend, Ribble Valley Jazz & Blues celebrates its 5th Annual Jazz Festival. Since 2010 the festival team has worked hard developing Lancashire’s Premier Jazz Festival - a five day feast attracting top UK musicians & bands, ready to play in The Grand’s superb theatre. The Festival menu offers a fine list of free fringe gigs, focuses on youth music and a colourful blues stage, brings Saturday Street Jazz to Clitheroe town centre, and adds new concerts to village venues. We continue to innovate every year. The 2014 Festival programme should be branded Ribble Valley Jazz Festival Plus because we have added an extra day, and introduced pre & post festival gigs. Collaboration with Spot on Rural Touring starts the Festival a day earlier with Scotland’s Camerata Ritmata on Thursday evening 1st May at Grindleton Pavilion. Poetry meets Jazz with Rory Motion brings inter-arts collaboration. Pre-fest warm up gigs introduce Get the Blessing and Mike Walker & Stuart McCallum, late March and

Festival Plus Presents Two Festival Warm Up Gigs

These events are a chance for audiences to meet up with Festival organisers, learn more about the Festival programme, and take advantage, on the night, of Early Bird Festival ticket offers! All top class jazz events organised in collaboration with The Grand, and The Atrium Café Bar.

Get the Blessing

Plus support from the John Wickham Trio Date: Saturday 29th March, Doors 7.00pm, Stage 7.30pm - 10.30pm Venue: The Grand, York Street, Clitheroe BB7 2DL Tickets: £12, Affinity Card Holders & Jazz Club Members £10 Get the Blessing wear their jazz credentials lightly but defiantly. A shared love of legendary saxophonist Ornette Coleman’s early quartet inspired their boldly monophonic instrumentation. The rock-solid rhythm section comprising Portishead duo Jim Barr (bass) and Clive Deamer (drums) forms the gloss that holds GTB together, with the dual saxophone and trumpet frontline working with the bass to create melodies and harmonies. The Bristol based four-piece have deftly ploughed their jazzy post-rock furrow since the release of “All Is Yes” back in 2008, daring enthusiastic comparisons to similarly inventive acts like Tortoise and Polar Bear. The follow-up 2009s Bugs In Amber cemented their affable rapport with critics and fans alike, and further defied the boundaries and boxes that were placed around them. 2014 marks the release of Get the Blessing’s new album Lope & Antilope, and their biggest tour to date. “Cool… stylish… irresistible.” The Telegraph “…they may well be the most original and exciting band on the British scene at the moment.” Jazzwise Line-up: Portishead rhythm masters Jim Barr - bass, Clive Deamer - drums with Pete Judge - trumpet, Jake McMurchie - sax.

Date: Thursday 3rd April, 8.00pm - 10.30pm Venue: The Atrium Café Bar, Castle Hill, Clitheroe BB7 1BA Tickets: £10, Members £8 Two of the UK’s finest guitarists, both proud Mancunians, are undoubtedly an incredible attraction in their own right. Mike Walker has performed with some of the world’s greatest jazz musicians over an incredible career, including Kenny Wheeler, Dave Holland & Vince Mendoza. You’ll also have seen him countless times at the Manchester Jazz Festival, with his Ropes commission in 2008, and co-leading The Impossible Gentlemen alongside Gwilym Simcock, Steve Swallow and Adam Nussbaum. Stuart McCallum describes his sound as ‘alternative jazz’, taking influences from jazz, electronica, rock, contemporary classical and everything in between. He performs all over the world as a member of the Cinematic Orchestra and has remixed Radiohead, as well as releasing his own critically acclaimed albums. This is a top jazz event for Ribble Valley Jazz & Blues in the lead up to the May Day Bank Holiday Festival. Web Sites: www.mike-walker.co.uk www.stuartmccallum.com

RVJ&B has also promoted big band music in Lancashire for many years. We are delighted, therefore, to present the internationally celebrated NYJO as our Saturday night festival headliner. NYJO is one of the UK’s longest-running ensembles for young people under 25 playing big-band jazz. Founded by Bill Ashton OBE in 1965, the orchestra still fulfils its founder’s vision by offering aspiring young musicians the opportunity to rehearse, write and gain experience in live performance. NYJO features 23 musicians and vocalists from around the country - the

10

majority go on to become professional musicians. Alumni include Guy Barker, Mark Nightingale, Gerard Presencer, Pete Long, Dennis and Winston Rollins and Amy Winehouse. Members are encouraged to write their own arrangements and compositions, thereby creating a diverse repertoire to draw from in addition to classic big-band standards. National Youth Jazz Orchestra has around 40 albums to its credit. Its last album, The Change, was released to critical acclaim in September 2012. Saturday will be a good day for Big Band fans. In addition to hearing NYJO on Saturday evening, there will be a chance to listen to local school and community big bands during the daytime as part of the Street Jazz Festival. There is a fine tradition of high quality big band jazz in the North West over many years. So the advice is - get your tickets in good time, perhaps as part of a Festival Rover Ticket? Then look forward to enjoying the NYJO concert.
