Saturday 27th October: Becc Sanderson Sextet "Bows To Bowie"
Created in 2014 by Becc Sanderson with her husband and collaborator Chris Greive, the Becc Sanderson Sextet is a living Real Book to the talents of this powerful Australian vocalist, a perfect marriage of Sanderson’ mellifluous voice with Greive’s prodigious arranging talents.

Recorded in one night at a sell-out performance at The Jazz Bar in Edinburgh, Becc Sanderson Sextet Bows to Bowie is an unabashed celebration of one of the most inventive and mercurial artists to ever walk the planet, an emotional pilgrimage to all things Bowie. Plundering classic albums such as Heroes, Aladdin Sane, Ziggy Stardust, Let’s Dance and Hunky Dory for their extraordinary repertoire, the Becc Sanderson Sextet pay ample tribute to the legend whilst embracing his tradition of reinvention.


Saturday 10th November: Tommy Smith Quartet: Embodying the Light
Tommy Smith - tenor saxophone
Peter Johnstone - piano
Calum Gourlay - bass
Sebastiaan de Krom – drums

Internationally acclaimed saxophonist Tommy Smith pays homage to his greatest inspiration, saxophone icon John Coltrane with a band of major creative talents.

A presence on the global jazz scene since his teenage years with Gary Burton’s Whiz Kids quintet, Smith has recorded for Blue Note and ECM Records and currently tours the world with Norwegian bass master Arild Andersen’s trio, widely regarded as one of the premier groups working in jazz today.

Drummer Sebastiaan de Krom has provided the drumming powerhouse behind Herbie Hancock and Jamie Cullum and award-winning pianist Peter Johnstone, a former Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year, and bassist Calum Gourlay bring experience from working with the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra’s array of world class guests.

Performing favourite Coltrane compositions including Naima, Dear Lord and Resolution from A Love Supreme alongside Smith’s own homages to his hero, Tommy Smith Quartet: Embodying the Light promises exciting music full of spirit, passion, devotion, and emotion.


Saturday 24th November: Square One with Andy Middleton
This international partnership brings together two generations of musicians from very different backgrounds - award-winning Scottish quartet Square One and leading Vienna-based saxophonist Andy Middleton (USA). In March 2018, Andy and Square One performed a tour of Scotland and recorded an album, entitled ‘Double Bind’, which will be launched at this concert tonight.

Andy Middleton is a veteran of the New York scene, who’s 30-year career has seen collaborations with world leaders in jazz, including Ralph Towner, Kenny Wheeler and Dave Holland.

Square One is a collective of Scotland’s finest emerging jazz talent, known for their brand of heavy-hitting melodic jazz and acclaimed 2016 debut album ‘In Motion’. The band features three winners of the Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year.

The music that Square One and Andy perform constitutes a meeting of American and European jazz styles – from Andy’s roots in the New York scene to music informed by modern folk, world music and progressive rock, featuring virtuosic and sophisticated saxophone playing, soaring guitar solos and intricate interplay.


Saturday 1st December: The Tim Kliphuis Trio
The Tim Kliphuis Trio return to Glasgow with their exhilarating, high-energy brand of gypsy jazz, classical and folk.

This show is the Scotland premiere of the Trio’s new “Brandenburg” album, and also features Django and Grappelli gems.

“Brandenburg” was recorded with orchestra in South Africa and is a fresh and thrilling rendition of Bach’s masterpiece. “Playfully inventive and effortlessly brilliant” - The Scotsman


Saturday 8th December: Brodie Jarvie Quintet
The music of Brodie Jarvie is a double-edged sword: masterfully composed pieces that can seem both simple, playful and intricate. Whilst also serving as open platforms for pure interplay between the masterful musicians he shares the stage with. With Powerful lyrical music, masterful arranging and a clear and honest attitude towards music. Brodie’s fine sensitivity to the fibres of music makes him as much a grounding force on the bass as an independent voice in any ensemble. The well-contoured play between tension and release puts the music in a constant momentum, drawing the listener closer to the music. With compositions described as an anthem of a Celtic fairyland, combined with an equal portion of mystique and intrigue. Expect a diverse setting of musicians from all over Europe, Mexico and South Korea setting the mood for a truly special evening.


Saturday 15th December: Paul Towndrow at 40 Plays Charlie Parker With Strings + Late Night Jam Session
**Please note: Show time is 8:30- 10:30pm then at 10:45pm – 1pm is late night jam session. All included within the ticket price**

Paul Towndrow at 40 :
Plays Charlie Parker with Strings
+Followed by Late Night Jam Session (1am finish)

Saxophonist Paul Towndrow celebrates his 40th birthday in style, leading a glorious 16 piece string orchestra with a star studded jazz rhythm section, as they pay homage to some of the most iconic music in recorded jazz history. As well as reproduction and re-interpretation of the original classic arrangements, expect never-before-heard string arrangements of Charlie Parker compositions, penned by Towndrow himself.

The concert will be followed by a special late night jam session, with multiple surprise guests and performances.

Saxophonist Paul Towndrow is best known as a bandleader of ensembles ranging from duo to sextet. He is also a long-time member of Scotland’s flagship jazz orchestra, The SNJO. Performing professionally since the age of 15, and having spent his formative musical years studying on both sides of the Atlantic, Towndrow has become one the UK’s busiest musicians.


Saturday 22nd December: Carol Kidd accompanied by Brian Kellock
Carol Kidd has always had a shower of stardust around her, and she's such a scarce commodity in Scotland now that concerts are special occasions, and here she is with Brian Kellock on piano, and a range of songs from the great era of American Songbook shows. Shimmering and soaring with flawless phrasing, Kidd's voice always thrills, with her impeccable timing and deep emotional engagement.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Late Night Studio Jazz are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
