Another singer building a strong reputation - albeit at a slower pace - is Zoe Rahman, who is at the Bonington Theatre, Nottingham, on Thursday and at the Millennium Hall, Sheffield, on Friday.
Claire Martin, of course, has been around for longer than just about all of her fellow vocalists - and she still sets high standards for artistry and entertainment. She performs at the Queen's Hall, Edinburgh, tonight and at the Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow, on Monday. Meanwhile, the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra continues its run of performances of the music of Keith Tippett and Geoff Keezer with a concert at RSAMD, Glasgow, tonight.
The drummer Dylan Howe and his band, rooted in the classic Blue Note sound, continue their tour with shows at the Old Brown Jug, Newcastle- under-Lyme, on Wednesday, Matt & Phred's Jazz Club, Manchester, on Thursday and The Boiler Room, Birmingham, on Friday.
The self-styled Sexy Saxes in Suits - otherwise known as in-demand hornmen Snake Davis and Derek Nash - take the Friday-night slot at the Boxford Fleece, Suffolk, while on the same night, Phil Mason's New Orleans All Stars relive the traditional sound at the Lord Hill Hotel, Shrewsbury. Finally, the ever-inventive saxophonist Stan Sulzmann is at the Rhythm Station, Rawtenstall, on Tuesday.Reuse content
