Ian Shaw at Seven Jazz Leeds

One of, if not the top, Male Vocalists in the UK came to Leeds yesterday (24th Feb).
Following a masterclass with some local singers, Ian entertained us with his wit and sensitive renditions. I have always been a fan of Joni Mitchell especially Big Yellow Taxi.
Thanks to Ian for a great Gig

Trichotomy supported by Dave Kane at Seven Arts

So maybe Facebook marketing does work! Thanks Dave for letting me know this gig was on!
The appetiser was Dave Kane playing improv bass solo...
Followed by Trichotomy as the name suggestes a trio, from Australia playing self written songs from their new and earlier albums. Along with some story telling about taxis!
Trichotomy are;
Sean Foran - piano
John Parker - drums
Pat Marchisella – bass
