February Jazz Club features the GAZ HUGHES SEXTET playing ART BLAKEY Featuring Bruce Adams, Alan Barnes, Dean Masser, Andrzej Baranek, Ed Harrison
Most recently, Gaz has recorded his first album as band leader. The album features the music of the late, great Art Blakey.
The album felt like a very natural decision for Gaz as Blakey’s music has been a constant theme throughout his life. The first Jazz album Gaz bought was an Art Blakey live record and it remains one of his most played and treasured albums. Blakey was prolific as a recording artist which made the job of deciding which tunes to play even more difficult. With such a huge back catalogue to choose from, Gazhandpicked a selectionof compositions by Bobby Watson, Wayne Shorter, Freddie Hubbard and Curtis Fuller
Jazz Club bar, food available – great music – good company!
