Mon March 5: 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.

Entry 12 (U25s 6)
This evening the club are very pleased to welcome back another of Norfolk's talented exports in the form of trombonist and composer Tom Dunnett.

Those who have heard Tom's "Dunnett / Baxter Big Band" in action will already be familiar with the young trombonist's considerable writing and arranging skill, and he's assembled a stellar line-up of the UK jazz scene's most exciting instrumentalists to perform an evening's-worth of entirely new material. Drawing on influences that embrace the likes of Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, Dave Holland and Chris Potter, Tom's compositions go well beyond the 'theme and solos' style of writing and condense a big-band sensibility into sextet format; so grab your tickets early for what's guaranteed to be an evening of killer tunes played by a red-hot band. You can catch a flavour of what's in store from this short video compiled from the sextet's recent studio session.

Doors / tables available from 7pm / music from 8.30-11pm.
