21 July:

John Crawford/Mike Bradley/ Phil Scragg/Jeremy Shoham


JATE regulars Phil Scragg and Jeremy Shoham have put together this band and set of music to showcase some of their favourite jazz pieces written by artists ranging from Fats Waller to Carla Bley. They are joined by pianist John Crawford and drummer Mike Bradley – both phenomenal musicians with impressive CVs.

John Crawford has glided effortlessly between Latin Jazz (playing with luminaries like Airto Moreira, Eumir Deodata, Snowboy and Jesus Alemany) and straight ahead jazz working with pretty much anyone you can think of on the UK jazz scene including Norma Winstone, Chris Batchelor and John Etheridge. He has appeared at festivals in Montreal, the Netherlands and China and performed at all the major UK jazz venues. In the pop world he's played with Björk, Tanita Tikaram, Us3 and many more.

Mike Bradley has had a similarly illustrious career and has been first choice drummer for countless UK jazz artists appearing on the albums of for example, Carol Grimes, PAZ, Roadside Picnic, Sax Appeal, Gary Baldwin and Carol Kidd. He has also done lots of West End theatre stints including Thriller. Never let it be said we don’t bring you the very best of the best!
