Mon April 16: Open Mic / Jazz Jam with the Simon Brown Trio

See location
The Library Restaurant
Entry £5
Join us in our new venue for the monthly jam session, where guest performers are invited to sit in with the house trio. Now located in the bar area of The Library Restaurant on Guildhall Hill, you can enjoy the music from the comfort of the sofas, around tables, or even watch proceedings from the mezzanine. Musicians of all ages and experience are welcome so come on down and have a blow, or relax and listen to some of the city's finest jazz talent. Reflecting a different arrangement than we had with the previous venue, the entry fee of £5 now applies to all-comers.

The restaurant's 'Burger Hour' deal is available in the early part of the session when you can pick up a substantial handmade classic meat or vegetarian burger for just £8. Discover more about the menu (and the venue generally) here.

Tue April 17: Oxley-Meier Guitar Project Pete Oxley (guitar)
Nicolas Meier (guitar)
Raph Mizraki (basses)
Paul Cavaciuti (drums)
Bistro Britannia @ The Guildhall
Entry £12 (U25s £6)
We're delighted to welcome Pete Oxley, Nicolas Meier and the quartet to Norwich Jazz Club as part of their "Colours of Time" album tour.

Expect a dazzling display of contemporary fare, ranging from Turkish panache to soundscapes of latin America to English pastoralism, all of which you'll hear performed on nylon string, steel string, electric, 12 string, fretless, slide, guitar-synth, glissentar guitars and more!

Fans of vocalist Gabrielle Ducomble will already have heard Nicolas performing with her at the club several times before, so it's great to be able to feature Nic here again in this project where the material has been co-written by him. Get an idea of what's in store in this video filmed at "The Spin" - Pete Oxley's own club in Oxford.

“This album is a wonderful example of the high level of music that can be made by combining two great guitarists / composers / improvisers such as Pete and Nicolas. They have put together a feast of virtuosity, delivered with depth, wit and joy” RALPH TOWNER
