Jazz quintet bringing together the finest European players in Bristol
See event details
Following their recent gig at The Bebop Club BEJE, Bristol's European Jazz Ensemble have reasons to pop open the champagne. It's founder David Mowat's 60th Year, Spanish pianist Ana Gomez's 30th Birthday and BEJE is 5 years old!
To mark this happy occasion we're bringing back the band's classic line up: Syrian-Swedish Anders Olinder, the international touring Herbie Hancock-esque pianist (2nd from right), Italian Paolo Adamo (far left), Mankala's engine on drums and Frenchman Julien Alenda (2nd from left) on honied tenor alongside Mowat's (centre) trumpet and Guillaume Ottaviani (replacing the just-too-busy Pasquale Votino far right) on bass.
Ana and others, hopefully German oud star Knud Stuwe and altoist Len Aruliah will be joining the party.
For their set BEJE will play grooves from their first two albums, samba, new orleans swing, Miles Davis-like middle eastern melody,a Somali desert tune, a Rajasthani rag and more, accompanied by the Salt Cafe's delicious spread of chow.
£6 entry on the door for music from 4pm
