Fleet Jazz Club puts on monthly jazz performances from some of the UK’s finest jazz musicians on the third Tuesday of the month, in a “jazz club” environment at the Harlington Centre in Fleet. The club has an enthusiastic and growing membership since it started in January 2013, and we are always very happy to see new people too. There’s more about who we are and what we do here.
We have a growing gallery of wonderful photos of recent gigs thanks to our friends at Aldershot, Farnham & Fleet Camera Club (AFFCC). Also we have created short profiles of most of the artists who have performed at Fleet Jazz Club.
May 8th – Charlotte Glasson Quartet at the Fox & Hounds, Church Crookham.
Fleet Jazz is delighted to be hosting our first pub jazz night, with a quartet featuring the multi-instrumentalist Charlotte Glasson, at the Fox & Hounds Pub in Church Crookham. This gig is in addition to our regular monthly jazz events held at the Harlington (the next Harlington event is on May 15th featuring Paul Booth with the Janette Mason Trio).
An extremely versatile performer, band leader and session player, Charlotte plays all the saxophones, flutes, clarinet, bass clarinet, violin and viola, penny whistle, melodica, percussion (and even the saw in Lost and Found Orchestra!) and has played with Nick Cave, Claire Martin OBE, Three Friends, Herbie Flowers, Oasis and John Martyn, among others.
Family-owned, the Fox and Hounds won Best Public House by Welcome to Fleet and has been awarded a Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor every year since 2014. It’s free entry, the music starts at 8pm, and they also do food! You can find the menu, address etc on the pub website at www.foxandhoundscc.co.uk
“Witty, exhuberant & genre defying stuff…Charlotte Glasson will restore your faith in jazz!”
Paul Booth – tenor sax, Janette Mason – piano, Marianne Windham – bass, Nat Steele – drums
A top billing as acclaimed saxophonist Paul Booth joins the trio of pianist Janette Mason to pay tribute to the music of jazz legends Horace Silver and Herbie Hancock.
Tenor saxophonist Paul Booth is an in demand solo artist, as well as a ‘first call’ sideman for many big names in both jazz and popular music worlds. He has worked worldwide with a variety of well-known artists including Steve Winwood, Steely Dan, the BBC Big Band, Carlos Santana, Eric Clapton, Riverdance, Ingrid Jensen, Matt Bianco, Eddie Henderson, and many more.
Whilst studying at the Royal Academy of Music, he won several awards including the prestigious Clifford Brown/Stan Getz fellowship held in Miami, and the Best Modern Jazz Player category in the UK televised “Young Jazz Player of the Year” competition.
Janette Mason, from her high profile gigs throughout the 90’s touring with artists like Seal, Oasis, k.d.Lang and Robert Wyatt, to the years on camera as Musical Director for Jonathan Ross and Antoine De Caunnes, has proven to be a consummate musician and a standout talent in Jazz, Pop, Indie, Rock and World Music.
A mainstay of the British Jazz scene for over a decade she has toured her unique sound worldwide, playing everywhere from The Atlanta and Rochester Jazz Festivals to the Carnegie and Albert Hall.
