Monthly Sounds

26 Jul - 8.00pm

£10

 

Our monthly session of barrier busting sounds, performed in-the-round. 

Next Up: Abbie Finn Trio

Monday 26 July, 8:00pm

A North East England based jazz ensemble led by energetic young female drummer Abbie Finn.

With fellow Leeds College of Music Alumnus, saxophonist Harry Keeble, and bass player Paul Grainger.

‘A masterclass in straight-ahead jazz’  Russell Corbett - Northern Echo

‘Exceptional British Jazz'  Chris Philips – Jazz FM.
 

Their album NORTHERN PERSPECTIVE, recorded last year, is the culmination of the Trio’s playing together so far, and is a mix of new work and their favourite songs.

With a distinctive sound emerging whichever of their varied influences is to the fore on a particular piece of music, this album reflects the varied influences of the band and their musical relationships.

“Northern perspective is an album in homage to the people of the North East of England. We have been welcomed with open arms onto the jazz scene here by audiences and fellow musicians and are extremely grateful. I’m also grateful for the chance to create an album with these two superb musicians. It has been a pleasure.” – Abbie.

LOVE SUPREME

Three blissful days of music in the Lewes countryside.
We debuted with our own small stage at Love Supreme Festival in 2017.
By 2018 year our stage was bigger, brighter, and became the go-to place for a late night hang.
2019 was the best yet.

Sadly we didn't see you in 2020 or 2021.

But 2022 will be the biggest and brightest we've ever done. See you all there!

Visit the Love Supreme website for more information.

LONDON JAZZ FESTIVAL

Every year we are proud to be part of the EFG London Jazz Festival.

In 2018 we spread our Jazz wings with gigs both here and at Kings Place. And in 2019 we filled the stage with more musicians than ever before with Jason Yarde & Acoutastic Bombastic. 

Have a look at their website for more info and to stay up to date with what is happening with this year's festival. 

 
 


SUPPORT

 

The Cockpit has been awarded an ACE grant so we can record all the emerging artists that play with us at Jazz In The Round .

And we couldn't do it without our friend and a long time supporter of Jazz In The Round Loudwater Partners. We thank you. 

Take a bow all those who've contributed for free over the years to hold the space and get us here: Jez Nelson, Chris Phillips, Sean Corby, Alex Watson, Richard Wyatt, Steve Cropper, Gina Southgate.
Take a bow Nick Burkinyoung, Akilah Dale, Chris Lince, Deb Jones, Kat Gardner who make each and every event happen with zen quality.
Take a bow The Audience; and Cockpit Supporters of Sound, dozens of whom have been to each and every gig for 7 years.

JiTR set out to provide an open event truly able to reflect and promote the brilliance, beauty and innovation of contemporary jazz in London and the stories of its fabulous musicians.

And we're doing it. So loud applause for all of us  -  In the round.


 

TRANSIENT LIFE

 

 
Each month we are lucky to have Steven Cropper taking photographs, and capturing the magic that happens. 
 
Catch up on his work at www.transientlife.uk where you can marvel at his images!
 
 
 

 


GINA SOUTHGATE

 

Every month our artist in residence Gina Southgate paints the action as it happens. See her work on display in our foyer, view it on her website, or just come along and watch her live on the night.

(She's been painting along with lots of online jazz broadcasts too, both here and elsewhere. Check out her facebook page to see how brilliant she is, even with just a computer screen to work from!
