Programme listing

2017

January 13

Chris Gumbley and Anything Goes - An exciting new collaboration between four of this country’s most creative musicians, playing a cornucopia of music from around the world. Anything Goes really does some it up: anything including unique arrangements of American songbook classics, French traditional song, Piazzolla, as well as a couple of originals. An exciting version of the Hebrew song Bei Mir Bist Du Shoen is a highlight of the evening. With Tina May on vocals, Fred Thelonious Baker on guitars/bass guitar, Karen Street on accordion, and Chris Gumbley on clarinet/sax/piano.  

February 10

Tom Hill Quartet - Tom is a brilliant Californian bass player who has accompanied jazz legends such as George Shearing and Mel Torme, as well as being bassist with Les Brown and the Band of Renown for over nine years. The quartet plays jazz standards by Miles, Monk and Ellington, bluesy vocals, and some funkier tunes by Herbie Hancock, Grover Washington Jr, and Weather Report. Join Tom's latest band of misfits for a night of steamy jazz, blues and uptown funk - with Andy Shillingford on sax, Al Gurr on piano, Nick Milward on drums and Tom on bass, vocals and sardonic humour.  

March 10

Zoltan Sagi Quartet - An accomplished and widely-experienced musician, Zoltan is equally at home on the soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxes. Born in Hungary, Zoltan is completely self-taught on the saxophone, drawing inspiration from Cannonball Adderley, Johnny Hodges and Stan Getz. Performing a blend of West Coast jazz and swing, the quartet features the music of Stan Getz and Artie Shaw’s small band, including many well-known standards. The Quartet features Al Gurr on piano, James Agg on bass, and Alan ‘Sticky’ Wicket on drums.  

April 14

Linda Angelis Quintet - Singer/songwriter Linda Angelis has toured extensively worldwide including sessions in Monterey and a concert for Black Hawk records. She currently sings with both the Dragon Jazz Orchestra and the West Midland Light Orchestra. Her latest CD, co-written with pianist Stuart Goodhew, is titled 'Jazz in my Heart'. Trumpet player Dick Pearce (from the late Ronnie Scott band) and Miles Levin on drums join this stellar quintet with originals taken from their albums, along with favourite jazz and bossa-nova standards.  

May 12

Billy Thompson Gypsy Style - A popular and regular visitor to the Bonded Warehouse, Billy is one of the finest and most exciting jazz violin virtuosos in the UK. A core member of Barbara Thompson’s seminal jazz/rock outfit Paraphernalia, Billy and his group play a mixture of Hot Club numbers made immortal by Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt, as well as Romany gypsy anthems, and Eastern European and Latin American melodies. For jazz violin and Hot Club enthusiasts this is not a concert to be missed.  

June 9

Art Themen Quartet - One of the giants of British jazz, Art Themen was involved in the traditional jazz movement in Manchester in the late 1950's before becoming part of the early London blues scene, playing alongside Alexis Korner and Chuck Berry. In 1974 he began his longstanding musical relationship with the revered Stan Tracey, playing with all of Tracey's groups for over 20 years. Known for his originality and highly individual playing style Art and his Quartet make a rare and exciting visit to the Bonded Warehouse.  

July 14

Devon Harrison and the Planet Jazz trio - The 2016/17 season of concerts comes to its climax this evening when Devon brings his exciting new ensemble to the Bonded Warehouse. Devon teams up again with the excellent Birmingham based pianist Richard Hughes, following on from their thrilling collaboration with the Mark Buckingham Quartet, and Stourbridge's talented bass player and guitarist Delano Mills, and introducing the new kid on the block an exciting fresh young talent, Tony Robinson on drums.
