JAZZ REVIEW OF 4-SIDED TRIANGLE AT BAKER ST AND A PREVIEW OF WHAT'S TO COME.

Swindon's leading jazz venue Baker St presented a evening of impressive jazz music by the Jazz Services lottery sponsored quartet 4-Sided Triangle lead by post bop saxophonist Kevin Figes and featuring world class jazz rock guitarist Mike Outram. Mike is a professor of guitar studies at Trinity College and The Royal Academy, London and he demonstrated complete control of the sounds coming out of his sweet wailing rock guitar. Kevin Figes playing Alto/Baritone Sax produced some beautiful and thoughtful solos and there were some striking cross rhythms from drummer Mark Whitlam. Andy Nowak completed the quartet. Andy is now recognised as one of the most fluent and lyrical jazz pianists in the south west. Altogether a superb evening's jazz music.

Next jazz show at Baker St Sunday July 1st 1-00pm/3-30 will be the Emily Wright Duo. Followed by the UK's Number one jazz pianist Dave Newton and his trio on Tuesday July 3rd 8.30pm/11-00 FREE!
