Harborough Jazz 

Welcome to the Harborough Jazz club website



The Market Harborough Jazz Club focuses on promoting modern and mainstream forms of Jazz. Our aim is to not only provide Sunday sessions at our venue at the Angel Hotel, but also further promote local jazz events. We now have a strong reputation for providing jazz sessions from national and international names as well as rising local stars. This year our programme included  Art Themen, Jim Mullen, Henry Lowther, Don Weller and Clark Tracey. This year is our 10th anniversary and the programme for 2014/15 sees a range of top flight bookings including: Annie Whitehead, Simon Spillett, Stan Sulzman/Jim Hart, Tina May and Nigel Price We look forward to seeing you at our lunchtime sessions on the second Sunday in every month to enjoy a friendly relaxed atmosphere, good food and the best in modern jazz

NEON  is another British supergroup, featuring  star saxist Stan Sulzman alongside Harborough favourite Jim Hart on vibes,  Ross Atanley on organ and Tim Giles on drums. If Stan Sulzman is making his first appearance at Harborough Jazz, that is our fault rather than his, for he is a legendary and well respected member of the UK and European jazz fraternity whose career includes spells with Gil Evans, the Clarke/Boland big band and other European big bands as well as a longstanding association with the late much missed trumpeter Kenny Wheeler. Vibes player Jim Hart is making his fourth appearance here and is best known to us for his Quartet featuring piano player Ivo Neame, with whom he also plays, but people should also check out his Cloudmakers Trio. Organ player Ross Stanley has played with both the organ trios led by guitarists Nigel Price and Phil Robson, as well as playing with tenor sax player Alex Garnett and as a membmer of the Quentin Colins/ Brandon Allen Quaret. Tim Giles is a ‘cutting edge jazz drummer’ (Daily Telegraph) who has been a full time musician since aged 16.  Playing outstanding jazz in a modern style, this group has been a hit on its appearances around the country and its two cds Catch Me and Subject received great reviews. Given the wide ranging commitments of these musicians, Harborough Jazz is fortunate to be able to bring them to the club at this time – modern music in a modern style. Again this is a gig not to be missed

 Sunday 11th January 2014 – Tina May and her Trio
