Latest news from the team at Brecon Jazz Club –

BRECON JAZZ CLUB on TUES 10 JULY starts at 7.15pm is a SHOWCASE event, presenting rising stars from this year’s graduates of the ‘Jazz Performances’ course of the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff.

These are some very outstanding jazz musicians indeed and we are presenting three line-ups, consisting of two quintets and one quartet:

Josh Heaton’s ‘Mouth of Words’ Quintet
Rachel Head alto sax
Kumar Chopra guitar
Josh Heaton tenor sax
Mateus Prado double & electric bass
Zach Breskal drums

Skeleton Leaf
A quartet led by Eddie Jones West
featuring Dave Bush (tenor sax)
Ben Manning (double bass)
Frazer McIntosh (keys)
Eddie Jones West (drums)

Norman Willmore Quintet
Norman Willmore (alto sax)
Tom Newitt (tenor sax)
Frazer McIntosh (keys)
Ben Manning (double bass)
Zach Breskal (drums)

NB: pre jazz supper at the Gurkha Corner from 5.30pm on – please book your place and state chicken, lamb or vege curry (£10 per person) to:  info@breconjazzclub.org

Many of you will recall the outstanding performances (reviewed favourably by Ian Mann in www.thejazzmann.com) of young tenor sax player Tom Newitt (see band 3 above) and drummer Zach Breskal, at Brecon Jazz in the Muse last year. Mateus Prado (band 1 above) has also performed at both the Jazz Club and our Festival (bassist for Atsuko Shimada) – so we hope you will all turn out to support these young rising stars. They are really looking forward to coming along to perform for us.

We’ve created a special early start of 7.15pm to encompass three performance sets and two breaks (still time for drinks and crisps!) and a special entry price of £8 for members and £10 for visitors and non-members!

We are very grateful indeed for the support of the ACW NIGHT OUT / NOSON ALLAN team who are providing financial support to be able to pay three bands for the July Brecon Jazz Club.

And a big thank you to musician Tom Newitt who has worked with us to bring it all together.  We’ll see you then.

Watch out for our next email with news of the Festival full concerts lineup, prices and deals. See website now (click on the box BJF2018 Programme)  www.breconjazz.org

Until then, mark the date – Tues 10 July – a special to welcome a ‘new generation’ of solid jazz talent, made in Wales.

Best wishes to all
Lynne, Roger and BJC team
