The Sound of BlueNote

29 July 2021 @ 8:15 pm - 10:30 pm


The Sound of BlueNote consists of five of the most prominent musicians in the South of England, who pay tribute to the legendary jazz record label – BlueNote Records. Focusing on the iconic period of the 1950’s and 60’s, the band play tunes by BlueNote legends Hank Mobley, Freddie Hubbard, Art Blakey, Horace Silver and more. All the material is taken directly from the original recordings and is performed with the same swinging intensity that defines the BlueNote sound.

Here’s what some of the UK’s best known musicians have said about the band:

They sound great, they play great, and damn it they look great too. [SOBN] deftly deliver intrigue and soulful lines in remarkably tidy unison and then dazzle with their virtuosic improvisations, all the while driven by a top flight rhythm section. Don’t miss any opportunity to see and indeed hear The Sound of BlueNote” – Nigel Price

The Sound of BlueNote take their lead from the greatest recordings from the iconic jazz label…Slick ensemble passages alternate with inspired solos to bring this exceptional material very much to life! This may be a celebration of a golden musical age but in a modern and very relevant context.” – Alan Barnes

Terry Quinney – saxophone
Andy Urquhart – trumpet
Phil Doyle – piano
Ben Taylor – bass
Andy Chapman – drums
