Saturday 9th - GILAD ATZMON

9:30PM Gilad is a wonderful sax and clarinet player with a powerful sound and unique approach. His fiery, immensely fluent playing and remarkable technique have established him as one of the most talented saxophonists in world music, performing a mix of classic jazz standards and originals with an energy and enthusiasm that is hugely infectious. His most recent CDs, along with his recently published books, set him apart as one of the most original and creative artists on the scene today. Passionate about both his music and his politics, Gilad’s gigs are always stimulating both musically and intellectually. Tonight he will showcase material from his latest studio recording, “The Whistle Blower” (his eighth) which was released through Gilad’s own Fanfare Records. And watch out for the new documentary on Gilad, premiered recently in New York. Gilad will be ably accompanied by his extraordinary band, The Orient House Ensemble: Frank Harrison on piano, Yaron Stavi on bass and Chris Higginbottom on drums. Promises to be quite a night...

“A master…a jazz giant with a formidable international reputation”The Guardian; “Atzmon...Astonishing” Time Out

Gilad has well documented views on the Middle East conflict that may provoke and challenge the listener.

Monday 11th - TOMMY BLAIZE BAND

8:30PM Liverpudlian Tommy Blaize is a fantastic, charismatic singer/keyboardist who is widely admired and respected throughout the music business. Although for many years an unseen figure behind the scenes, his voice is familiar to millions from work with the likes of Tina Turner, Craig David, Gary Barlow, Marti Pellow and Lulu and from TV ads such as Coca Cola, Levis, and British Airways. Considered one of the most in-demand session singers on the scene, he has been featured on numerous film and TV soundtracks and has been heard here at the Club with Madeline Bell. However, more recently Tommy has been finally achieving some hugely deserved recognition as a brilliant singer in his own right after his appearances as one of the house vocalists on BBC TV’s hit show Strictly Come Dancing (oh, that singer!). A great guy and a fantastic performer it is with enormous pleasure that we welcome Tommy to the Club this evening with his own amazing band, featuring fellow “Strictly” band members Dave Arch-piano, Trevor Barry-bass, Andy Caine-guitar/vocals, Paul Dunne-guitar and Ian Thomas-drums playing a selection of classic Groove and R&B standards with the odd jazz tune thrown in. Tommy and the Band will be featuring music from their first album “Don’t Ya Love Life”, so expect plenty of fireworks and some very Special Surprise Guests. With several hundred years experience between them this brilliant gig from the Tommy Blaize Band is an absolute must – trust me!

Friday 22nd - WAYNE HERNANDEZ

9:30PM WAYNE HERNANDEZ is one of those fantastic singers who has been using his considerable talents for many years to make others sound good. Hugely successful within the music business he has worked with Tina Turner, Tori Amos, Blur, Grover Washington, Roberta Flack and Madonna. He has also toured extensively with Kool and the Gang, Regina Bell and most recently Billy Ocean, and is one of the singers with the band Gorillaz (oh, that guy!). With an Afro-Cuban heritage that includes work to this day with the London Community Gospel Choir, along with living in New York for a number of years, Wayne describes his music as “…a living fusion of music styles from the Black music scene”. Also a well-established songwriter and producer, this multi-talented artist delivers a simply brilliant set of powerful groove music with an impressive eight-piece band of hand-picked musicians, including guitar, sax and backing vocals, that define the word “soul”.

“...it was clear that Wayne had a very special talent, his voice, it was simply breathtaking” Livemusic.fm

Tuesday 26th - DAN REINSTEIN'S BIRTHDAY GIG

Dan Reinstein 606 Club Chelsea Live Music Jazz London UK8:00PM DAN REINSTEIN American born but British educated, I first met Dan at the old Club when he was a medical undergraduate. Even then he was an impressive player, and after taking time off his medical studies to go to the Berklee School of Music he became even more remarkable. He returned to the USA in the early 90s where he became one of the world’s leading experts in laser eye surgery (he’s now officially Professor Reinstein). But he never stopped playing, and when he returned to London to live and work it was great to hear his fluent, classic hard-bop, muscular sax playing again. Also featured tonight will be Shanti Jayasinha on trumpet and Tim Lapthorn on piano.
