Jazz @ HEART presents Jamil Sheriff Trio

Event date: 
Sat, 03/12/2016 - 7:30pm

Piano - Jamil Sheriff Drums - Dave Walsh Bass – Pete Turner

Supported by: the Joel Fellick Quartet

Part of an Arts Council England tour, to promote his new album, ‘Places Like This’ (new jazz records). Composition remains at the heart of Jamil’s artistic output, and the trio (formed in 2013) provides him with the space to explore freer elements. The ensemble was initially part of Jazz North's Northern Line and in 2014 toured China for two weeks before recording 'Places Like This'.

Jamil Sheriff is known throughout the UK Jazz scene for his lyrical and rhythmic approach to original music, and this latest project is no exception. Carefully developed through-composed elements are interwoven with freer improvisations and swinging solos, showing Sheriff to be an artist with a unique identity. His approach brings together a mixture of styles as he endeavors to find common and genuine ground between wide ranges of influences.

Doors 7.15 p.m. Tickets £10 (£6 concs) from HEART reception or online.
