Rooftop Gardens
Entry £25 + Cover Charge
PURCHASE TICKETS
It’s a great pleasure to welcome Jim back to Norwich for a performance with his renowned organ trio. Their skilful interpretations of the jazz standards coupled with Jim’s unique sound, a mischievous inclination to quote a variety of tunes over the chords of another, and his gentle Glaswegian humour between songs all make for a highly entertaining evening. The band invariably delivers a masterclass in the art of the organ trio, so be sure to book early for what’s certain to be a popular evening!

Tonight's show is part of the autumn season of gigs at the Rooftop Gardens where expanded menu options are now available in the restaurant. The ticket price secures your table and includes a 2-course meal (add a 3rd course for £5). Please note that a cover charge of £12.50 for the music will be added to your bill at the end of the evening.

Award-winning violinist Tim Kliphuis is a legend in the Gypsy Jazz world through his work with The Rosenberg Trio, Fapy Lafertin and Angelo Debarre. He has performed at all the major Django festivals worldwide and is seen by many as the inheritor of Stéphane Grappelli’s crown. Tim and his Trio have toured from Canada to Russia, from Scotland to South Africa and as they celebrate their 10th year on the road, we're delighted that they're appearing at Norwich Jazz Club as part of their UK tour.

The trio's recent CD “The Grappelli Album” has received rave reviews. Read more about it and listen to audio samples here.

Sun November 19: Sara Dowling with the Simon Brown Trio Sara Dowling (vocals)
Simon Brown (piano)
José Canha (bass)
Alex Best (drums)
Rooftop Gardens
Entry £25 + Cover Charge
PURCHASE TICKETS
Born in Oman to an Irish father and Arabic mother, Sara spent the early part of her life travelling through the Middle East due to the nature of her fathers work. Perhaps unsurprisingly her listening influences were eclectic, varying between Erroll Garner, Wynton Kelly and Bud Powell to the great Arabic chanteuse Fairuz. Although a highly accomplished 'cellist with a degree from the Royal Northern College of Music, since 2009 Sara has focused on her vocal career, establishing a reputation for her immensely emotional vocals, spell-binding interpretations of classic ballads and for the energy and vigour with which she tackles the up-tempo standards from the American Song Book. Her recent album 'From Shadows Into Light' received five-star reviews. Check out her delightful version of "I've Got A Crush On You" here.

Originally from Norwich and a former student of Norwich School, George is now based in London as a busy saxophonist, clarinettist, composer and promoter.

Since his arrival in the capital in 2007, Crowley has steadily established himself as a key player within the city's burgeoning creative jazz and improv scene, active across a range of styles and through his energy and expressive, warm saxophone sound, marking himself out as a musician who demands attention. As such he has collaborated and performed with some of the most exciting contemporary projects, including Melt Yourself Down, Julian Argüelles' Septet, Yazz Ahmed, Red Snapper, the Michael Chillingworth Septet, Rick Simpson's Klämmer and the Olie Brice Quartet featuring Jeff Williams. We're delighted to be able to feature him at the club this evening as we appear for the first time in The Guildhall's Bistro Britannia.

Citing amongst her influences vocalists such as Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone, Karen Carpenter, Roberta Flack, Minnie Riperton, Joni Mitchell, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday, Deelee's wide vocal range and distinctive vocal quality are attracting her ever-increasing attention, and in 2016 she was the winner of the prestigious Sarah Vaughan International Competition, leading to a deal with the Concord Jazz label.
