Contact Leader Jazz Group

We play jazz on vinyl, CD and digital formats and listen to trad, swing, big band, bebop, Latin and much, much more, mostly from the first 60 years of the 20th century. We take it in turns to lead a session with whatever turns us on – it is a jazz group after all! This is voluntary, if you just want to sit and listen that is fine. We listen, discuss and above all, enjoy! Our sessions are varied and members present their favourites as part of the group’s programme for the year. This could be artists, styles, arrangements or indeed videos of live performances.

Reputedly people either love or hate Jazz. The Jazz Group exists to challenge this assertion. Since Jazz covers such a wide field a frequent question is, “Is this Jazz?” We know from our members, some who have substantial knowledge and experience of jazz, that they don’t embrace all genres. We aim to provide a taster that can be sampled in congenial surrounds and you should not have a concern if your jazz awareness is limited or non-existent.

Now we are starting again do drop in for a session and see if it is music to your ears.
