Sherborne Jazz on Saturday 26th

We recieved this message below from the Sherborne Jazz Club. Sounds like a great night out. I'll let them tell the story.

Dr Quantum Leaps is the latest CD from The Dierdre Cartwright Group who will be performing on Saturday 26th February at sherbornejazz at The Plume of Feathers in Sherborne.

I can confirm, from having heard them at a recent Teignmouth Jazz Festival, that the band is Intensely hip, groovy, accessible and atmospheric in the words of The Musician magazine.There has been a good deal of media interest in Deirdre's latest project and she's been interviewed about it on several radio programmes including Courtney Pine's BBC radio show and one of BBC Radio Three's jazz programmes.John Fordham of The Guardian describes the music on the new CD as Soft, lyrical and heartfelt combination of contemporary jazz and urban music. Do come along and join us at sherbornejazz to enjoy the music. You will be most welcome.As usual, doors open at 8:00pm - and prices are £10 / £8 / £5 for non-members; members & students respectively.If you would like more info. about this gig or the club in general, please check the newly updated sherbornejazz website or give us a call on 01935 410881 ... hope to see you there!

If you haven't already been to hear jazz at The Plume of Feathers, then you probably don't know about one of the West Country's greatest musical assets sherbornejazz. It's been evolving for more than fifteen years in different venues in and around town.The sherbornejazz venue at the Plume of Feathers has a low-key atmosphere so you can stand or sit and chat at the back and no-one will mind. Stage lighting illuminates the players, candles light the tables, so you can merge into the background and just listen if you prefer. Most tables are now are non-smoking.By some fluke of physics - and our excellent Yamaha PA system that we have been able to afford with lottery funding from Arts Council England - it's one of those rooms with surprisingly good acoustic properties so you can hear what's going on equally well at the back or the front.
