The Allsorts led by Canadian drummer and composer Katie Patterson, Jazz Yorkshire's Young Musician of the Year 2012
Hebden Bridge’s very own jazz club HX7 Jazz goes into its 4th year reaffirming its commitment to supporting the best up-and-coming musicians from around the Yorkshire region. Perhaps no-one fits the bill better than the Leeds-based Allsorts Band who visit the Trades Club on Thursday January 24th with their unique brand of original contemporary jazz mixed up with neo-soul, latin, rock and fusion.
The Allsorts are led by Canadian drummer and composer Katie Patterson, Jazz Yorkshire's Young Musician of the Year 2012 but the quintet also includes bassist Peter Gavin, keyboard player Oli Cadman, Norwegian guitarist Eirik Berg Svela and Russ Henderson on tenor saxophone – all luminaries of the burgeoning Leeds jazz scene.
Fresh and lively, Katie’s compositions range from “wild and yet tranquil” to catchy, toe tapping grooves and soulful ballads: all combining tight and enticing ensemble playing, with expressive and expansive soloing from the whole band which recently supported New York supergroup Snarky Puppy on the Leeds leg of their UK tour.
Opening the show will be pianist and HX7 Jazz organiser Dave Nelson who regularly plays a few tunes at the beginning of the evening, alongside Hebden Bridge singer and songwriter Terry Logan making her Trades Club debut.
HX7 Jazz is at the Trades Club in Holme Street, Hebden Bridge. Doors open at 7.30pm with live music starting at 8pm, and The Allsorts Band on soon after 8.30. Phone the Trades Club on 845265 to book advance tickets which are £10 and £7 concessions. February’s show features the very exciting Julian Costello Quartet and this is followed by Get The Blessing (featuring the rhythm section from 90s triphop and electronica pioneers Portishead) in March. There’s more information about these and other forthcoming events at www.hx7jazz.com.
