as April draws to a close, we’ve yet another fabulous programme of monday night jazz coming up for you in May at the Oxford Tavern, here’s what’s on the horizon…
6th May: Leon Greening
Hard swinging pianist Leon Greening brings his world class quintet to The Oxford to kick things off on the 6th May. Featuring some of London and New York’s finest, Nat Steele (vibraphone), Colin Oxley (guitar), Adam King (double bass) and special guest Mark Taylor (drums) – this gig will mark the end of their spring tour, as they perform their interpretations of lesser-known hardbop selections from the jazz cannon.
’This was a highly engaging evening of classic hard bop with some incredible original material from Leon Greening, surely one of the UKs finest pianists,’
Charlie Anderson, sussexjazzmag.com
13th May: David Ingamells
David Ingamells has established himself as one of the most versatile jazz drummers of his generation. He performs regularly at all the major jazz clubs and venues in the UK and will be joined this evening in trio by visiting New York based pianist JinJoo Yoo and bassist Simon Read.
