Jazz musicians from Liverpool are heading to Huddersfield.
The Weave will be playing The Keys Restaurant beneath Huddersfield Parish Church on Saturday, April 12.
They are an exciting incarnation of some of Liverpool’s best established jazz musicians and at the epicentre of this new musical planet is band leader Martin Smith’s euphoric trumpet.
He is a man who has burned to the very core with musical fire for a near quarter century and whose enthusiasm and humour lights up all before him.
He has woven together a network of some of the very finest musicians from this musical city including Tony Ormisher (guitar), Tilo Purnbaum (drums), Rob Stringer (piano), Hugo Harrison (double bass) and Tony Peers (trumpet).
Together they bring a mind-bogglingly diverse CV of influences and experience. Jazz icons such as Digby Fairweather, Ian Carr and Jim Mullen rub shoulders with the likes of John Martyn and Arthur Brown, while names such as Super Furry Animals, The Coral and Albert Lee are fascinating head-turning tangents.
Together they weave a brilliantly original new musical kaleidoscope of ideas knitted together to create a soundscape like no other, spanning the bridge of several generations where no genre is denied access to the party of parties.
