TORI FREESTONE/ALCYONA MICK DUO

AL SWAINGER QUARTET – TRIBUTE TO CHICK COREA.
Bassist Al turns his hand to yet another innovative project tis time in dedication to Chick Corea. Al says “Mix Chick Corea with Radiohead in a blender then use the resulting cocktail to write film music and you might get something a little like this”. Critics have described it as “the birth of a new layer of fusion’.
SAM MASSEY ENSEMBLE
Trumpeter Sam Massey is showing just how good jazz is in young hands. The Sam Massey Quintet is a jazz/funk ensemble comprising some of the South West’s finest jazz musicians, combining an experienced, steaming rhythm section with an energetic, front line blend of trumpet and tenor sax. The band play a mixed programme of jazz standards, ballads and jazz-funk numbers, as well as original compositions.
