Fleet Jazz Club holds monthly jazz performances from some of the UK’s finest jazz musicians on the 3rd 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.
“SONNY ROLLINS AND THE MODERN JAZZ QUARTET”
NAT STEELE QUINTET
feat. US TENOR SAX STAR GRANT STEWART
Nat Steele’s “Sonny Rollins and the Modern Jazz Quartet” UK tour features US tenor saxophone giant Grant Stewart in the role of Rollins, playing homage to the classic 1956 Prestige album of the same name. Stewart has won the prestigious Downbeat Magazine award 8 years in a row, and is on record as being one of Jimmy Cobb’s (drummer with Miles Davis, Kind of Blue) favourite tenor players. He has released 16 albums as leader, as well as playing and touring regularly all over the States, Canada, Asia and Europe.
Steele’s recently released debut quartet album “Portrait of the MJQ” received rave reviews in the jazz and national press, including 5 stars in BBC Music Magazine (“Jazz Choice” of the month), 4* in the Observer, and 4* in JazzJournal and JazzWise magazines.
In the quartet’s first performance as a quintet with Grant for the 2018 London Jazz Festival (at BopFest) playing the Rollins + MJQ programme, Forbes Magazine reviewed the concert in glowing terms, saying that it was “…easily one of the top gigs of [the LJF]”.
