Jazz At The Spotted Dog is busy planning its second compilation album and this one is going to be called Live At The Spotted Dog. It will feature four bands and will capture the great live atmosphere that is generated each Tuesday night at this pub in Digbeth, Birmingham. The album will be released on Stoney Lane Records.
But Richard Foote and Jonathan Silk, the Spotted Dog Bros, need your help in order to make this project a reality and they have started a Kickstarter campaign to that end.
The first night of recordings was earlier this week with sets by a trio of Andrew Bain on drums, Michael Janisch on bass and John O’Gallagher on saxophone, and the Ben Lee Quintet.
Your help will not only assist Jazz At The Spotted Dog to make this album but will help this invaluable Birmingham jazz session go from strength to strength. This is the kind of night where music students can rub shoulders with the established players, where the Birmingham jazz scene is at its most vital and exciting. I can’t think of a better way to support jazz in Birmingham.
As the Spotted Dog Bros say: “This is not only a celebration of the wealth of music that the Spotted Dog has seen over the last 5 years but also a promotional tool to showcase how exciting, creative and important the Birmingham Jazz scene is.”
There’s a tight window of opportunity with a Kickstarter campaign – Richard and Jonathan need to raise £2,500 by 14 June.
