SCJC PRESENT …… BRITISH SUMMERTIME ENDS featuring the Dovetail Quartet : 8pm
On Sunday October 28th most people in the UK will have had an extra hour in bed, as clocks go back to mark the end of British Summer Time. British Summer Time Ends features the Dovetail Quartet, who are a South West based jazz group of experienced musicians from varied musical and life backgrounds.
Each band member brings their own unique flavour to the sound, which they like to call “urban-cosmic”. The Dovetails are unified by their love of jazz in its many styles and guises. Most of the Quartet also compose, which brings a welcome tension and variety into the dynamics of their repertoire. The way the band explore each other’s compositions is also reflected in their approach to standards and the not so familiar pieces from the jazz greats.
Standing behind and underpinning the rich sound is bassist John Cook, who also runs the Jazz Jams every second Friday of the month at Under the Edge Arts. Kelvin Yearwood plays sax and is a dynamic, intelligent and thoughtful musician. Pianist, eclectic multi-instrumentalist, composer and jazz educator, Beth Jones, lives and works in Bristol. Jamie Morrison on drums plays jazz, reggae and Alt folk, mainly at festivals and clubs; he has recently engaged in a long period of study with the top teachers in London."
Come celebrate this summer transition with this exciting new Quartet.
