Our monthly jazz night & the only jazz night in Halifax, curated by Harry Stobart.
Issey Chivers is one of the most exciting new vocal acts to hit the UK jazz scene in recent years. Her beautiful music
Uroboro was originally formed as a trio in 2014 by saxophonist and poet Keith Jafrate, to improvise and to play his compositions, with Anton Hunter on guitar and Johnny Hunter on drums. The line-up changed in 2019, with pianist Laura Cole and bassist John Pope joining Keith.
With the 2 versions of the trio performing quite different versions of the same compositions, it seemed natural to bring everyone together to see what would happen, so the new band merges both versions of the trio to form a quintet.
They play leftfield jazz that could perhaps be described as a kind of narrative, landscape music, lyrical, beautiful and fierce, but which can also be funky and sinuous. After two days recording this August, they are performing a launch gig in The Mill’s handsome venue.
