SPALDING JAZZ CLUB

March 29th 2007 sees the launch of a new regional monthly Jazz Club in Spalding, attracting some of the top names in the jazz world to East Anglia. Award-winning vocalist Jacqui Dankworth will appear with her quartet on the opening night with internationally acclaimed musicians Dave O'Higgins, Mark Nightingale, James Taylor Quartet, Claire Martin, Bruce Adams, Henri Bok, the National Youth Jazz Orchestra and Pete Churchill set to perform later in the year.

The Club is organized by FP Music, a Spalding-based music agency run by Dave Foster and Neil Pennock, both of whom are jazz musicians working in London and across the UK. 'We've been looking to set up a Jazz Club in the area for several months and at the start of this year we secured a partnership with the South Holland Centre to hold the monthly events. We are excited to be able to bring some outstanding musicians to the area and hope to attract audiences from across the region.'

Membership of the Jazz Club is available for an annual fee of £15 which provides a 10% reduction on all Spalding Jazz Club events, priority booking and a monthly newsletter.

JAZZ JAM SESSION

Len Holden has taken over the jazz jam sessions at the Musician, Clyde Street, Leicester (Tel: 0116 - 2510080) from Chris Beggs. The next Jam session is on WEDNESDAY 30TH JANUARY FROM 8pm.

He would also like to briefly outline the philosophy and aims of the jam sessions.

Firstly, it is to act as a forum where experienced musicians can play freely with other musicians and exchange ideas.

Secondly, we strongly support the forum as a place where less experienced musicians can find a public platform for their playing. We welcome novices and amateur players who do not regularly play. We wish to give them the support and nurture they need. We feel that the sessions have already done this magnificently in the past and we would wish that tradition to continue.

Thirdly, we wish the sessions to be a contact point where musicians and jazz lovers can meet and network in a relaxed atmosphere.

Fourthly, we more than welcome non-players and hope that the sessions inspire them to take an instrument and blow, but most of all we hope they come and listen to some good music.

Fifthly, keep music live and jazz alive!
