Unusual jazz trio at The Cube

Speake_Outram_Williams120An unusual trio of alto saxophone, guitar and drums, Martin Speak, Mike Outram and Jeff Williams, will be performing at The Cube in the new year as part of the Derby Jazz season.

The threesome’s gig at Deda’s Chapel Street venue in Derby will bring together all of Martin’s musical influences alongside his favourite musical partners.

Martin, who is highly regarded in jazz circles, is known to a wider audience through his work with The Style Council and is one of the most interesting, lucid and rewarding alto saxophonists.

American Drummer Jeff Williams plays impeccable time, has immaculate taste and worked for two years with jazz giant Stan Getz and many times with Lee Konitz.

Mike Outram is one of the UK’s foremost guitarists who is sought after as an improvisor and for his ability to contribute a unique voice to any musical ensemble.

Jazz standard songs, heavy metal guitar, meditative ballads, trance like grooves, unaccompanied solos from each player and more are featured in this unique and intimate trio.

They will be at the Cube on January 4 at 8pm and tickets are £10.
