At Heart events we are very excited about our new short season of jazz gigs, which we are putting on with Leeds College of Music (Jazz Course).
All the musicians are current students at the College and will be offering an eclectic and stunning selection of jazz, in all its many guises.
The sessions will take place in the Assembly bar and kitchen. Donations on the door, £3/£5 if possible.
First up we have the 107 Quartet + Oliver Barry Quartet
107 Quartet is a jazz quartet based in the North of England, made entirely of jazz students at the Leeds College of Music. They formed in September 2018, and play standards and originals. Influenced by bop and hard bop, they also take a more modern approach to arranging and composing. They are currently busy recording demos for release soon.

The Oliver Barry Quartet are a contemporary guitar quartet playing a mix of originals, rearranged standards and other songs. Drawing influences from jazz figureheads including Chris Potter and Bill Frisell, they aim to perform new music with a focus on lush sounds and group interplay.
