Entry £14 / U25s £7 PURCHASE TICKETS

 

We're delighted to welcome Paul Higgs to the club to present an evening of tunes by trumpet legend Miles Davis.

At the forefront of many important jazz innovations from the 20th century, Davis was also famous for his haunting, lyrical sound. Paul's subtle and sensitive style combined with an exquisite tone and virtuoso skill are perfectly matched to Davis's work. Laced with anecdotes about Davis's career, Paul's programme includes a number of well-known favourites as well as some less-familiar treasures.

Get a taste of what's in store here.

Open Mic / Jazz Jam

with the Simon Brown Trio
 

Bedfords Bar
Entry £6

 

Join us at Bedfords Bar for the monthly jam session where guest performers are invited to sit in with the house trio for maybe a blues, a favourite jazz ballad or bossa, or just a full-on bebop blow-out! (Singers please bring 3 copies of charts in your key for tunes you'd like to sing).

There's nowhere in Norwich quite like Bedfords for performers or patrons if you're looking for that intimate live-music experience. The musicians playing on the professionally-lit, elevated stage are easily visible to the audience from the bar's 4- and 6-seater tables; while the high-spec in-house sound system ensures that everything is clear as a bell. Musicians of all ages and experience are welcome so join the friendly house trio on-stage for a blow or just come along to relax and check out the vibe.

Admission £6 (pay on the door)

Doors 7.30pm / Music from 8pm - 10.30pm

Entry £14 / U25s £7 PURCHASE TICKETS

 

Led by saxophonist Harry Greene, this brand-new quintet pays a loving tribute to the legendary Blue Note label with fresh arrangements of Dexter Gordon, Freddie Hubbard and John Scofield compositions to name just a few. The band, comprising of some of the country’s most exciting and respected jazz musicians, captures the Blue Note spirit whilst retaining their own style and sense of originality.

Active in the eastern region's jazz scene even while still at school and more recently a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music, Harry is now a fast-rising star on the wider UK jazz scene. Those of you who caught his organ trio here at the club in March 2019 will already know how Harry's arrangements stylishly reinterpret familiar tunes, giving us the opportunity to discover them all over again! And with this killer line-up you're assured of a great evening of high-quality music.
