Jazz Appreciation


Do you enjoy jazz? Do you think it would be fun listening to all forms of jazz with a group of like-minded individuals? If so, then come along and see if it’s a group that’s for you.

After the success of our first term, we are restarting our meetings in September and now wish to expand our numbers. Members are welcome with little or no knowledge, just a desire to share their interest and learn more.

We cover all periods from the early routes in New Orleans to present day. Jazz is also very diverse - it has many forms and links to other genres, such as blues and soul, so it’s likely everyone can connect with it in some way or another.

The programme for the forthcoming term is being finalised. Our meetings usually comprise members sharing track selections along a particular theme e.g. artist, instrument, etc., followed by a brief discussion. We also have special guests coming to share their experiences, and this term we are delighted to say we will be joined by the highly acclaimed local singer Beverley Beirne, discussing the role of voice in jazz, and Steve Crocker, the driving force behind Jazz Leeds.
