COMING NEXT

Ant Law Quintet
Ant Law

Come and discover a fine contemporary guitarist who delivers imaginative, essentially acoustic jazz.

Ant Law guitar, Michael Chillingworth reeds, Sam Leak piano, Tom Farmer bass, James Maddren drums

Ant is touring to showcase his second solo C.D. Zero Sum World recorded between a 29 and, this, a 27 date tour! He brings with him the cream of young British jazz.

Their intimate collaborative working will be very evident after so many gigs.

Expect an eclectic mish-mash of influences from around the world, bound together into one uniform statement by Ant's thematic writing and playing.

They "strike that hard-to-find balance between tricky and catchy, and the players he has chosen, are the sort of musicians who willingly embrace the fuzzy logic of improvisation." - Irish Times
Come and enjoy an approachable but stimulating evening.

AND THE WEEK AFTER THAT

Jim Hart's Cloudmaker Trio
Jim Hart

Wonderful vibes playing, somewhere between New York's 'downtown' sound and the modern European tradition, The Cloudmakers Trio is led by "one of the UK's most creative new jazz artists." - The Guardian

Jim Hart vibraphone, Michael Janisch bass, James Maddren drums

As Dave Gelly writes "This vibraphone-led trio display phenomenal musicianship and a knack for getting out of tight corners." Its second release, Abstract Forces which is to be featured at this Fleece gig, "further highlights the group's exceptional vibraphone-bass-drums telepathy"(which) draws from such diverse musical worlds*including free-jazz, funk, electronic experimentation, pure swing and unbridled improvisation" their music is not only impossible to resist, but gets better" - Downbeat Magazine.
Do not resist. You will enjoy Jim's amazing playing and interplay with incredible fellow drummer, James Maddren and the stunning bass of Mike Janich which would enhance any gig.
"Jim Hart's vibraphone work shows why this lonely instrument deserves more ears" - JazzTimes.

Come, enjoy, and bring your ears ... and your friends.
