Venue: Ronnie Scott’s, 47 Frith Street, London
Louise is back again, 2 September (not July), at Ronnie Scott’s upstairs bar as Renato D’Aiello’s special guest. Saxophonist Renato and his band have a regular Monday night fixture at Ronnie’s featuring a top UK/European singer.
Renato and Louise have been playing music together (see photo from 1996). For their July date, they will feature the music of hard-bop pianist and composer, Horace Silver: with his: Song for My Father, Tokyo Blues, Pretty Eyes, Peace, amongst a few others. In true jazz fashion we won’t know what song’s coming next or who might be sitting in. But you can be sure to hear exciting music made in the moment!
Get your table early! Note the 8pm start! There’s now booking for Ronnie’s upstairs and the price of £8 is a steal. You can turn up any time after 7.30pm. https://www.ronniescotts.co.uk/ronniesbar/reservation-formRead more
Venue: Head of Steam, St George's Square (Huddersfield Station), Huddersfield
There’ll be plenty of straight-ahead heat and steam when I join ace drummer Paul Smith and his Jazz Collective at their regular gig at Huddersfield train station’s Head of Steam pub. Paul is one of those sensitive listening drummers that singers want to play with – joyful, swinging. The band is likely to be: Andrzej Baranek (keys), Paul Chamberlain (bass), Paul Smith (drums & cymbals)
