Latest news from Brecon Jazz Club – showcase event on Tuesday

Posted By Robert Lloyd

Latest news from the team at Brecon Jazz Club:

Hello everyone –

Welcome to the heatwave newsletter!

Just a quick reminder that next Jazz Club is Tuesday coming (10 July) at the early time of 7.15pm for :

NEW GENERATION (Royal Welsh College) JAZZ SHOWCASE presenting rising stars from this year’s graduates of the ‘Jazz Performances’ course of the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in Cardiff. These are some very outstanding jazz musicians indeed and we are presenting 3 lineups, consisting of two quintets and one quartet – we’ve had quite a lot of interest in this event! Full details below.

Pre-jazz supper at the Gurkha Corner from 5.30pm on. Please book your place ASAP & option of chicken, lamb or vege curry (£10 per person) to:  info@breconjazzclub.org

JAZZ GALORE!! this Saturday (7 July), 1-3pm Jazz Band in the Town Centre & Bethel Square: Les Zauto Stompers (also at LLANDEILO JAZZ FEST, on this weekend), hosted here by Brecon Town Council. All good!

We are working with venues and partners ref Brecon Jazz Festival: if you would like to volunteer over the Festival weekend (10-12 August), please email Roger & Maire Griffiths:  griffiths891@btinternet.com

Can’t decide what to attend at the Festival? Why not buy a Sunday Stroller: 6 concerts for £55? (for full listing, including the workshops which are now live, please click on the box BJF2018 Programme)  www.breconjazz.org

Full details of Tuesday’s lineups –

Mateus Prado double & electric bass
Zach Breskal drums

Norman Willmore Quintet

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 at BJC and so we’ve created a special early start of 7.15pm to encompass 3 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 ALLANteam who are providing financial support to be able to pay 3 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 @ the Muse on Tues 10 July 7.15 pm to cheer on this ‘new generation’ of solid jazz talent, made in Wales.

Best wishes to all
Lynne, Roger and BJC team
