Jazz Bar Music

An afternoon of Jazz from the Jazz Bar’s very own Jazz Trio; Ed Kelly on double bass, David Patrick on piano and Bob Kyle on drums. Melodies in the repertoire include but are not exclusive to the jazz classics: My Romance, How Insensitive and They Can’t Take That Away from Me as well as compositions from the musicians themselves.

Jazz at One is a relaxed and easy afternoon of smooth classic jazz sounds.

Jazz at One is a relaxed and easy afternoon of smooth classic jazz sounds. The Jazz trio are a bit of a tired bunch at one in the afternoon as they both close the night at the Jazz Bar at 3am and kick it off the following afternoon. However the tunes are played well and there’s some nice variety in the melodies. Just don’t expect the liveliest of introductions! The tunes are solid with great changes, where the melody erupts and then simmers down to a smooth musical whisper before growing bigger and louder again. As several of the classics are played, this could be a nice introduction to jazz if you’re just getting into it or even as a way of hearing some classics again if you’re a seasoned maestro.

Ideal for a cheeky lunchtime wine session with friends, a date, or maybe just a cup of tea in the afternoon with a newspaper, this is a nice, relaxed afternoon of smooth sounds for an affordable £3. Let’s face it, that’s probably what you’d pay by way of donation if it was a free show anyway.
