2018

March 9

Fret and Fiddle - Opening our season in celebration of Women in Jazz as composers, instrumentalists, vocalists and band leaders in their own right, Fret and Fiddle make a welcome return to the Bonded Warehouse. Led by Sally Minchin on violin, the quartet evokes one of the most lyrical, influential and recognisable styles in jazz, Stéphane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt’s immortal gypsy swing. The band’s repertoire includes swing tunes, gypsy music, klezmer, folk and blues, and many Grappelli and Reinhardt favourites. With Andy Bole on guitar, Simon Smith on bass, and Steve Street on drums.  

April 13

Sue McCreeth Band - A highly acclaimed vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Sue first won recognition as one of the most engaging jazz vocal talents of the UK back in 2000, when she led various jazz ensembles on the South Coast of England. Since then she has released six critically acclaimed albums, been shortlisted twice for the International Song Writing Competition, won three touring awards from Jazz Services, and sold out for the London Jazz Festival. Sue's vocal influences are deeply rooted in jazz and soul traditions, including Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald and Diana Ross. Her original compositions reflect influences from 1960's Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter's 'Native Dancer' and the grooves of Joe Zawinul. With Wendy Kirkland on piano and Pat Sprakes on bass.  

May 11

Patsy Gamble Quartet - Saxophonist, vocalist, composer, performer and British Blues Award finalist, Patsy has performed and recorded all over Europe and the Middle East. Patsy also works as a session musician with one of the UK’s top horn sections: The Little Big Horns whose clients range from Mick Jagger to David Gibb. Featuring long time collaborator John Broomhall on keyboards, Patsy plays a mixture of jazz and blues standards with a few originals and occasional vocals in a distinctive smooth jazz, funk and soul style. ‘Sumptuous sexy sax playing’.  

June 8

Zoe Gilby Quartet - Making her Bonded Warehouse debut, vocalist and songwriter Zoe makes a stunning impression on the music scene today. Her compelling original compositions are written with her innovative double bassist husband Andy Champion. Zoe's stockpile of music reaches a wide range of more contemporary material from composers such as Pink Floyd to Kate Bush, with influences from Sheila Jordan and Joni Mitchell. With Mark Williams on guitar, Andy Champion on bass, and Richard Brown on drums.  

July 13

Alison Rayner Quintet - This is a real coup to have with us at the Bonded Warehouse, the illustrious Alison Rayner Quintet, who although based in London have been able to squeeze in a date here as part of a small tour of the West Midlands. This is will be a fitting and thrilling finale to our Women in Jazz season with three of the UK’s finest female jazz musicians involved in this fantastic band! With Alison on double bass/composer, Deirdre Cartwright on guitar, Steve Lodder on piano, Diane McLoughlin on saxophone, and Buster Birch on drums.
