Derby Jazz’s latest season of concerts is already under way and the latest offering will take place on Friday, January 9.

Derby Jazz has a well-earned reputation for bringing the best artists that the UK and international jazz scene has to offer, directly to the heart of the UK.

From the brightest, new British talent such as the multi award winning trumpeter, Laura Jurd, to one of the UK’s greatest jazz musicians, bassist Dave Green, via an elegant celebration of jazz classics with The Great Wee Band; an altogether different take on archetypal tunes with the Andy Cleyndert Quartet featuring Martin Shaw; Alex Garnett’s Bunch of Fives’ all-star line up; plus Radio 3 favourites, Partisans; to the stunning pianist Pat Thomas with South African sax player, Ntshuks Bonga. Derby Jazz are delighted to bring you yet another impressive line-up this Winter.

This week’s concert features Laura Jurd’s Human Spirit and starts at 8pm.

The ensemble features Laura Jurd (trumpet), Lauren Kinsella (vocal), Chris Batchelor (trumpet), Colm O’Hara (trombone), Mick Foster (baritone sax), Alex Roth (guitar,) and Corrie Dick (drums).

Laura Jurd is one of the jazz scene’s most exciting new musicians.

Derby Jazz is delighted to bring her back with her sensational new project, Human Spirit - a series of songs commissioned for the 2013 EFG London Jazz Festival.

The venue for the performance is The CUBE, Déda, Chapel St, Derby.

Tickets to see Laura Jurd and co in action are £10.
