Perpetual Motion Machine


Keeping up the momentum from last weekend’s spectacular  festival (see links at top of this page), PPM is a vibrant and original sextet with unusual instrumentation - two saxophones, two guitars, bass & drums - led by composer-guitarist Jamie Taylor. Visiting Zeffirelli’s in the middle of its debut UK tour, the band creates a sound distinguished by its spatial & stylistic breadth, referencing  rock, spoken word, bebop and much else.

Presented in association with Jazz North’s Northern Line Scheme

Stevie Williams Unplugged


Stevie Williams Unplugged

Stevie Williams is a talented UK bassist, singer and songwriter. As well as his solo work, he also fronts The Most Wanted Band, testament to his tireless work ethic and devotion to his craft. A life long devotee of the ageless blues, alt country and americana sounds, he has travelled the globe absorbing a plethora of diverse influences and honing his craft into the classic songwriting style he possesses today.

Stevie Williams and his latest project ‘Pockets Full of Gold’ featuring the song ‘She Don’t Do’ was produced by Stevie, engineered and written entirely by Stevie with the exception of one track. The hands-on approach with this album pays off, as he seem's completely in tune with the sound he want's to project. ‘She Don’t Do’ is a moody, stripped back and somewhat dark track complete with soulful delivery from Stevie and touches of psychedelia that just add to his quirky appeal. It’s catchy without trying to be.  http://forthecountryrecord.com

Ben Crosland Quartet


Bassist Crosland presents his long-established quartet, featuring master saxophonist Rod Mason, in an evening of mature and energetic performance in which there are no conflicting egos, only a desire to enjoy each other’s company, play good music and entertain.

The band's repertoire consists of Crosland originals and compositions by contemporary musicians such as Michael Brecker and Keith Jarrett.

Will Butterworth Quartet


Pianist Butterworth leads his quartet through a complete performance of the music on its new album ‘The Nightingale and the Rose’. The compositions are based on Oscar Wilde’s story of the same name, and the music follows the story of the nightingale until her last song is sung. Each of the seven movements is used as a starting point for improvisation, covering a wide range of style and moods within a tight structure.
