Dukes Sounds of Jazz
Thursday nights belong to the Dukes Sounds of Jazz mob, sometimes paying tribute to Jazz greats such as Chet Baker and Thelonious Monk, but on occasion just displaying their talent in the dark art of Jazz. With the first half of the night being a house band, the second half welcomes any cats looking for a jam, so if you know your way around a trumpet or a trombone, set of ivories or a saxophone, come join in the fun! Every Thursday from 8:30pm.

Thursday 22nd to Saturday 24th June: Glasgow Jazz Festival Programme
Three special nights showcasing some fantastic young talent in the world of jazz, featuring:
Glasshopper: an exciting young group born out of a love for melody and improvisation, currently based in London. Led by saxophonist Jonathan Chung, the group brings together the creative minds of guitarist James Kitchman and drummer Corrie Dick.
Influenced by the free, jazz, rock and folk worlds, the band performs Jonathan’s emotionally sophisticated compositions with reverence and abandon, intricately weaving together moments of sonic bliss and euphoric rock-outs. With improvisation at the heart of each performance, Jonathan, Corrie and James are unified in creating original interpretations that inspire fresh stories to unravel within the listener’s imagination…
Tom Syson Sextet: Tom Syson is a trumpeter and creative musician living in Bedfordshire, and is a graduate of the BMus Jazz course at the prestigious Birmingham Conservatoire with First Class Honours. He has played with people such as Jacqui Dankworth, Osian Roberts and Frank Griffith, and has played at many top venues, including Cheltenham Jazz Festival, The Royal Albert Hall and The Spice of Life.
After completing a UK tour in February 2016, the Tom Syson Sextet recorded their debut album ‘Green’ at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in August. The album was produced by Percy Pursglove and featured the JazzFm Vocalist of the Year 2016 Lauren Kinsella on a track. It is entirely made up from original material written by Tom, and creates a variety of exciting textures to keep audiences on their toes, with a focus on rich melodies
This show at the Glasgow jazz festival is a chance to see one of the most exciting and melodic modern bands made up of musicians at the very forefront of the British Jazz scene as they showcase the music of their new album.
Delta Autumn: Smashing hip hop, glitch, pop, rock, jazz and electroacoustic compositional techniques together to create a sound that sits somewhere between James Blake, Flying Lotus and Thundercat, their debut five-track ep is a fresh and welcome addition to the UK’s already exceptional electronic music offering.
Initially conceived as a studio-only project by musician-composer Robbie Moore and producer-engineer Luke Morrish-Thomas, Delta ∆utumn has since expanded to take in guitarist Thomas Seminar Ford and drummer Ric Yarborough, each augmenting their setups with an array of electronics and triggers.
Since the huge critical success, Delta ∆UTUMN are back with their brand new album taking fresh new genre-bending ideas and take on modern jazz with an electronic edge.
Guaranteed to be an almighty closer for our stellar Jazz Festival programme!
