A welcome return for the city’s most regular jazz promotion.
Birmingham Jazz have announced their first post-lockdown session, starring legendary trumpeter Henry Lowther with his acclaimed band Still Waters at 1,000 Trades in the Jewellery Quarter on Friday 28th May. Henry has graced the UK jazz scene since the early 1960’s, appearing with all the jazz giants both nationally and internationally – too many to name.
Henry Lowther’s Still Waters was born out a long association and friendship, going back forty years, between Henry and bassist Dave Green. They both felt that the time had arrived to play the music of their choice, together with some of the finest jazz musicians working in Britain today. As a result Still Waters is now one of the most accomplished, tightly ensembled and creative bands around. Although a classic quintet of two front line and rhythm, Still Waters plays radical and original music, ranging from gentle, quietly pastoral and melodic music, reflecting the band’s name, through to dynamic, free improvisation.
This gig has a restricted audience and at the time of writing only twenty tickets are left with any current Covid protocols in place on the day to apply. Payment online or by card on the day – just reserve your seat. Bookings by email request to [email protected] or phone 07887526435.
