Sextet gig this week (and some other gigs)

I have another gig coming up this week with my sextet.

Thursday 4th of July at the Jazz Nursery in Southwark http://www.jazznursery.com/

This is the last gig that we currently have booked in, I hope to sort some more out soon once I’ve been able to write some new music. But it could be a while some come down and catch us while you can.

I also have another couple of gigs this week that I’m looking forward to,

Monday 1st of July (tomorrow!) at The Oxford with Rick Simpson’s new Septet http://jazzattheoxford.com/

and Friday the 5th of July at the Con Cellar Bar with Reuben Fowler’s great Octet. http://concellarjazz.co.uk/

New Sextet – 1st of February at the Con Cellar Bar

I am currently writing music for a new project which I am very excited about. I am putting together a sextet which will make it’s debut on the 1st of February at the Con Cellar Bar, Camden.

The line up is:
Josh Arcoleo – tenor
Tom Challenger – tenor
Lewis Wright – vibes
Sam Lasserson – bass
Jeff Williams – drums
And I will be playing various reeds…

As you can imagine I am very excited about playing with such an incredible group of musicians and am doing my utmost to come up with some music worthy of their time and effort.

Did I mention I’m very excited about this?

I hope to see you there, it’s a double bill with Martin Speake’s amazing quartet so if all else fails I can guarantee at least one set of great music.

Come and check it out. More info at http://www.concellarjazz.co.uk (ignore the fact that it says ‘Michael Chillingworth Quartet’, this project came together too late for the listings.)
