Birmingham Jazz presents…

Three’s definitely company at 1,000 Trades.

One of the country’s finest jazz three-pieces will be performing this Friday at 1,000 Trades in the Jewellery Quarter for another Birmingham Jazz presentation.

George Crowley (sax)/Tom Farmer (bass)/Sam Jesson (drums)

The Sam Jesson Trio are united by their love of similar legendary jazz set-ups, from Ahmed Jamal to Sonny Rollins, Oscar Peterson and Dewey Redman. The trio wind their way through many gems of the jazz canon – some lesser known than others – sometimes deconstructing and breathing new life, sometimes paying homage to classic arrangements, with a devoted focus on making music that feels honest and joyous.

This acoustic saxophone trio are reworking the glorious compositions of Wayne Shorter’s from his electric era, from groove heavy Weather Report bangers to the soaring melodies from seminal albums Atlantis and Joy Rider.

1,000 Trades, 16 Frederick Street, Jewellery Quarter, B1 3HE
