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.
For this second gig in the series we have Pure Sketch and Zenith Group.
Pure Sketch are a bebop five piece jazz band that performs a mixture of standard pieces and originals. They are influenced by great musicians like Duke Jordan, Horace Silver and Joe Henderson. Their originals are also inspired by these musicians and hope to transport you back to the same era of music whilst maintaining a fresh outlook.

Zenith Group combines heavy, funk-infused groove with the jazz-tinged harmonic sensibility that characterise the flowing and quick-witted improvisational dynamic of this quartet’s burgeoning style. Twisting styles, blurring lines and effecting tones, Zenith Group take a firm hold of the baton passed by contemporary greats including Steve Coleman and Tim Garland, bounding toward their own finish line without looking back.
