Upcoming Gigs

Well, it's been a while. Things have been crazy busy as usual, and work on top of it all leaves little time (or indeed, awakeness) for going to gigs sometimes, or writing stuff here. I'm thinking there's not going to be too much on here for a bit also because we're expecting a baby soon and my hands are going to be pretty full... Anyhow, here are a few upcoming gigs worth catching (in chronological order).

Courtney Pine
Fri 2nd March, 1pm
Royal Conservatoire of Scotland

The saxophone legend will be performing a lunchtime concert at the Academy Conservatoire with students and staff from the jazz course. I would be there if it wasn't lunchtime on a weekday! Tickets £9.50.

Corrie Dick Quartet
Fri 2nd March, 9pm
The Jazz Bar

Young Glasgow drummer Corrie Dick is back up from London for this gig, and will be playing with his quartet in the Jazz Bar in Edinburgh, featuring Sam Rapley on tenor, Matt Robinson on piano and Conor Chaplin on bass. They'll be playing a mix of standards and original material - tickets £4/£3.

Ryan Quigley Big Band: Maynard Ferguson Tribute
Thu 15th March, 7:30pm
The Ferry

"Ryan Quigley and Glasgow Jazz Festival present the Ryan Quigley Big Band - A Tribute to Maynard Ferguson. This Big Band concert is a full-blooded tribute to Quigley's hero, high energy trumpet master Maynard Ferguson, so fasten your seatbelts!"

I've seen this one before - well worth catching! A very fun gig, and the band we're also loving it last time! Tickets £12 in advance, £15 on the door.

SNJO With Randy Brecker
Sat 26th May
Royal Conservatoire of Scotland

The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra will be celebrating the music of the late Michael Brecker with his brother, Randy Brecker. Looking forward to this one!

I had intended to go see the SNJO with Peter Erskine and the music of Weather Report this evening, but hints of the migraine headache from earlier in the week are creeping in and I have no wish to spend another two days in bed...
