Up Next . . .

06 April 2018 - Treppenwitz

Treppenwitz explore improvisation and sounds within open structures - peaceful and
spacious ; frenzied and angular - the sound of the band spans European avant-garde aesthetics, blues and extended spiritual ostinatos. Original compositions and improvisations interwoven with music from the swing and early bop era. Matthew Aplin - p, Tom Riviere - db, Steve Hanley - d

Artephis rescheduling . . .

02 March 2018 Artephis *** POSTPONED ***

Regrettably, in the interests of everyone's wellbeing considering the weather, resultant conditions and the extra "helping" of snow forecast for when we'd be setting off home, we have decided to POSTPONE tomorrow evening's Artephis gig.
We will re-schedule as soon as possible and advise the date when known. Apologies for any disappointment and hope to see you in more tropical temeperatures on 16 March for Phil Meadows Project




RNCM Alumni Artephis are a forward looking, contemporary ensemble casting late 60’s/ early 70’s Miles Davis influence onto a Christian Scott / Antonio Sanchez / Brian Blade Fellowship Band musical plane yielding an eclectic sound of explosive groove and light-footed nuance. Aaron Wood - tpt/flugel, James Girling - g, Ali Roocroft - p, Alasdair Simpson - b, Matt Brown - d

Brian Bicat

Dear Friends of JATPjazz, with much sadness and regret I must inform you of the demise or our beloved founder, Brian Bicat who passed away suddenly on 22 September. 
Announcement has been delayed in deference to Brian's wife Kathleen's wishes and to allow Brian's family to assemble from abroad to deal with matters. Kathleen requests expressions of condolence and sympathies be confined to card or letter presently whilst she struggles to come to terms with this sudden loss.

A celebration of Brian's life will be held at Nab Wood Crematorium on Thursday 12 October at 13:20

In keeping with Brian's strong "show must go on" principle, Kathleen plans to return to JATPjazz for the 03 November gig, having found some solace in attending to JATPjazz matters since Brian's passing. Kathleen requests therefore that her return be as normal, quiet and low-key as is possible and asks that no fuss be made on that occasion.

We plan at some point hence to hold a Bicat-Special in Brian's honour. Much detail is obviously to be added, however we broadly intend that this be a gig with Brian's favourite musicians, entry to which will be free, however there will be a "pay what you feel" arrangement, all proceeds of which will be donated to a charity of Kathleen's choice.


Farewell Brian - you are sorely missed
The JATPjazz King is dead. Long live the King!
