Gary Boyle Quartet @Seven Arts 11 Feb 2018 1.30pm

Gary Boyle guitar Andrzej Baranek piano, Ed Harrison, bass Jonathan Hartley drums

Funky jazz-rock mixed with bebop from Jazz Fusion guitar legend and ex Isotope bandleader Gary Boyle

With an impressive pedigree as a session player, sideman, band leader and solo artist - having worked with the likes of Dusty Springfield, Brian Auger, Julie Driscoll, Mike Westbrook, Soft Machine, Mike Gibbs, Eberhard Weber, Keith Tippett, Eddie Harris, Bert Jansch, founding 70s fusion group Isotope and 80s trio Triple Echo - veteran (75 this year!) guitarist GARY BOYLE is a master musician well worth re-discovering

In 1973 Gary formed jazz fusion band Isotope who recorded three albums and toured extensively in the UK, Europe and the USA. Albums - ISOTOPE, ILLUSION, DEEP END.

After Isotope disbanded in 1975 Gary recorded several solo albums, THE DANCER & ELECTRIC GLIDE. During this period Gary was voted New Star in the Melody Maker Poll and THE DANCER won the Pop/Jazz Award at Montreux Jazz Festival.

"Boyle's guitar is a weightless marvel, so sharp, clean and delicate is his picking." - Mike Butler, Manchester City Life

"More please, especially like the sensual, spacious ballad LP." - Andy Robson, Jazzwise Magazine

Stuart MacDonald and Dennis Rollins @Seven Arts 28 Jan 1.30pm

Stuart Macdonald sax Dennis Rollins trombone Martin Longhawn piano, John Marley bass, Tim Carter drums

A pairing of two of our favourites: Stuart MacDonald on sax and Dennis Rollins on trombone. These two fine musicians play jazz that is melodic and mellow, or exciting and funky, and always hugely enjoyable. Stuart MacDonald plays regularly with several top bands including Seven Pieces of Silver, Heavy Horns, New York Brass Band. Dennis is an award-winning trombonist and leader of Velocity Trio who played for us memorably at Seven Arts and with funky dance band Badbone.

In sum, a perfect antidote to the winter blues!
