Tom Ball’s ‘Liquid Spirit’
Wednesday 12th December
8pm at The Bronx Bar
Tom Ball – Keys
Martin Dale – Sax
Kevin Sanders – Bass
Nick Carter – Drums
The Liquid Spirit group draws from the house band of the new Liquid Spirit club in Torquay. The group was formed by pianist and keyboardist Tom Ball. Tom arrived recently in Devon but has rapidly become busy, playing with the likes of Annika Skoogh, Neil Maya, Martin Dale, Coach York, Pete Canter, Steve Dow, Jim Rintoul and occasionally depping for the Dave Hankin Big Band and James Billington’s All Jazzed Up group. Nationally he has played with Tina May, flautist Gareth Lockrane and drummer Tristan Maillot. He released his album Gemini this year with a trio including Maillot and the internationally in-demand bassist Jeremy Brown.
The band’s central concept is to entice modern audiences to the music, with a combination of the grooviest tunes from jazz’s history – think Art Blakey, Freddie Hubbard and Horace Silver – mixed with new arrangements of well known songs from outside the genre. Pop and rock songs are the new standards of our time and the band’s repertoire reflects this, while retaining the timeless, core elements that make jazz so special – groove and collective improvisation.

Gilad Atzmon and the Orient House Ensemble ‘The Spirit of Trane’ – 14 September
Thank You to everyone who came to see Gilad, we had a packed house and what an amazing evening. Thank You also to Gilad and the OHE who blew us away with their tribute to John Coltrane ‘The Spirit of Trane’. This really was a treat for Teignmouth Jazz & Blues Club.
We hope Gilad will be back for our 2018 festival. Below are a few photographs from the gig………..
