Cracking gig at Lichfield tonight

It’s going to be a great gig at the George IV in Lichfield this evening. Trumpeter Percy Pursglove has his organ trio – Ross Stanley on organ, Andy Bain on drums here with a very special guest – alto saxophonist Jon Irabagon.

Jazz fans in England will be familar with Percy, Ross and Andy’s sparky way of playing standards. Jon is based in New York,  is the winner of the 2008 Thelonious Monk International Saxophone Competition and regularly plays in New York clubs like the Jazz Standard and Birdland.

He has a new album out called The Observer, on the Concord label.

The band takes the stage at the back room of the George IV in Bore Street Lichfield (just next to the Guildhall) at 9.30pm as part of the Lichfield Festival’s Sundown Jazz with Cobweb Collective series. And it’s free! Don’t delay – get down here as soon as you can…
