Summertime is the finest time for jazz. This session hosts the awesome trumpeter Andy Hague as special guest, hot off launching his Coming of Age album which sizzles and moves!:
“it's the variety of the musical structures deployed, as well as the sheer spirit and fire in these performances that makes this a significant milestone for Hague and his chums” – Peter Vacher, four star review in Jazzwise March 2019.
“So impressed with this record, wow, it’s current, it’s hip” – Linley Hamilton, BBC Radio Ulster’s Jazz World.
Andy Hague has a formidable reputation not only as a stunning trumpeter, but as a composer and arranger, a big-band leader, and a fiendish drummer... from appearances on Portishead recordings, to festivals and theatre across the UK, BBC Jazz Notes, and numerous gigs throughout the region. Andy guarantees a firey-fun evening at SJS.
Andy's opening performance will be followed by our usual energeti-frenetic jam for all-comers to play, sing, or listen.
Set in the comfortable subdued lounge setting, each will feature a performance by the house band and guest. Second Thursday of every month at SVA.
