MATT CHANDLER TRIO

Matt has worked with many of the UK’S  major jazz artists such as Dave O Higgins, Alan Barnes, Dennis Rollins and Tony Kofi. His innovative style is supported by a career that has spanned genres from jazz to punk, folk to electronica. Based in London, The Matt Chandler Trio features Ross Stanley on Hammond Organ and Eric Ford on drums. At present Matt is promoting his 3rd album,” Astrometrics” released on 33 Jazz Records.

“I wanted to do an album that was in keeping with the organ trio tradition but with a newer take on it and with material that was not composition heavy, where the music and the players just "get down to it". The material, by design, is simplistic. It's really a celebration of our skills and how are skills work together. The album title is in keeping with this theme as it is an anagram of our names.”

SUNDAY 03 JUNE

JAZZ JAM

With its new home on the first Sunday of the month,...  Come to watch, come to play, come to drink...

What is the Jazz Jam?

The Jazz Jam is a session led by a great house band, where musicians and singers come to try out material, play old classics and sit in with other players. 

Who is it for?

It is for everyone. Half of the crowd come to play, half come to just watch. It's the sort of gig where you don't know what's coming next. 

What's the vibe?

It's a relaxed Sunday afternoon feel, very friendly and a chance to see some great music up close, often with musical combinations and improvisations that you will never see again.

If you are lucky...

....you might even see Perry's jazz dancers who stop in every now and then, clear some tables, and hit the floor.

DUGONG

 

Dugong is an up-and-coming band by some of the best musicians of the Italian jazz scene. It was originally created in Milan by guitarist Michele Caiati and saxophonist Nicolò Ricci, but it was later expanded abroad to London based bassist Andrea Di Biase and drummer Riccardo Chiaberta.

They released their debut album “Miscommunication” in 2014 with critical acclaim and toured it extensively in Italy, Switzerland and UK.

They will release their second album in April 2018 with the prestigious Italian label Honolulu Records. The band has a very individual sound which draws inspiration from many genres of music, from Alternative Rock to Modern Jazz to Contemporary classical music.
