Live music this week from Fougou Jazz, Torbay & Exeter

Two gigs this week as I start promoting at Exeter Phoenix. Both gigs are influenced by the wonderful jazz that came out of Blue Note Records in the 1950's and 1960's.  The Nick Maclean Quartet from Toronto, Canada are at Exeter Phoenix on Monday. They are influenced by Herbie Hancock's early Blue Note era work and give it a thoroughly contemporary feel. The Sound Of Blue Note at Churston Golf Club on Wednesday take a more straight forward approach and literally do what they say on the can.

Monday 17 February Nick Maclean Quartet ft. Brownman Ali. Exeter Phoenix


The Nick Maclean Quartet are four of Canada's finest musicians, they currently touring the UK. They take their influences from Herbie Hancock’s early 1960’s Blue Note era recordings, while paying tribute to some of the greatest improvisers in jazz history,  all with a contemporary edge. Led by acclaimed young Canadian pianist Nick Maclean and featuring on trumpet Brownman Ali who Air Canada described as 'one of the top 10 reasons for visiting Toronto.  More details and tickets


Wed. 19 February The Sound of BlueNote. Churston Golf Club, Torbay

The Sound of BlueNote is an homage to the legendary jazz record label, BlueNote Records. Focusing on the iconic period of the 1950’s and 60’s, the band plays tunes by BlueNote legends Wayne Shorter, Bobby Timmons, Hank Mobley, Freddie Hubbard, Art Blakey, Lee Morgan and the like. All the material is meticulously transcribed from the original recordings and is performed by the band with a deep love of the genre and with the same swinging intensity that defines the BlueNote sound.
Co-led by the acclaimed Canadian saxophonist Terry Quinney, now resident here in the Southwest, The Sound of BlueNote consists of five of the most prominent musicians in the south paying tribute to the music that came out of Blue Note Records. Terry has performed with many renown UK jazz stars including Nigel Price, Ian Shaw, Alan Barnes and Gilad Atzmon. More details and tickets.
