November 2014 catch up with the news

Such a lot going on this month. ARQ are touring the UK, LUND have a mini tour of Cornwall and then…

Deirdre leads her trio at two North London local gigs.
Yes, the thrill is gone – I’m sorry, I’ll read that again. The grill is on, for some great food and a mix of some beautiful originals and standards.
Book a seat for Ajani Grill  289 Hornsey Road N19 020 7272 5566. Music 8pm
Fri 14 Nov Jan’s Bar, N16 Deirdre Cartwright Trio with Diane McLoughlin guesting on sax. 8.30pm for a seat.

Calling Nottingham! Alison Rayner steps out from behind the double bass to lead her super combo ARQ.
They’re all packing into the Ford Transit and steaming up the M1 to JazzTrane. Our tour gigs have been such fun with the group really opening out and making the most of Alison’s great compositions. Let your friends in Nottingham know about this.
If you’re not on the ARQ tour lines or have missed the London gigs; why not buy the new CD?

Thurs 20 Nov ARQ on tour JazzTrane, Nottingham

OK here’s the BIG WEEKEND.

Part of the EFG London Jazz Festival 2014, this will be a memorable concert set in the candlelit medieval church and filmed for Mezzo/Arte Euro TV channels.
Right now, she is at the peak of her form…there is no jazz singer in the country to touch her.
