Is it February yet? Blimey!
First off… a BIG thank you to all who helped us make a storming start to 2012, we certainly couldn’t have done it without you folks and it’s a joy for us to look out to a room of friendly faces each week! Now the relentless group that we are, we’ve got a further four dates in the diary for the month of February. Yes, that means live jazz from the Jazz Meet collective and DJs playing jazz EVERY SUNDAY at The Shoreditch, E1, 3PM till close. In addition to all the usual fun, frolics, cocktail drinking and great, great music, this month we’re pleased to welcome two guest selectors into the fray to give us their own takes on jazz. First up on the 5th will be Analog Jones, one half of Twin Cities and DJ promoter of the legendary London Boglewaltz parties. He’ll be dropping in to share some of his current finds on a jazz and Latin tip. On the 29th, it’s the turn of Russell Porter, an effortlessly talented man about town who’s been constantly pushing new music ever since we’ve known him. For this session though, we’ve got him dipping into his extensive archives to bring us some of his own ‘favourite things’. Finally in the guest band spot this month, we welcome back the Jason Simpson Quartet. Whether it’s on the upright or on guitar, Mr Simpson has some serious talent on the bass and surrounds himself with some equally terrific players. Don’t believe us? Check here for some living proof! http://www.youtube.com/
We think it’s fair to say that with the resident Jazz Meet players and DJs going from strength to strength, February could be a little bit special.
We hope you can find some time in your busy schedules to pay us a visit or two!
