Liz Cooper Band Jazz Night

Tell a friend:

31st March 2015 - 8pm

Venue: Sock Gallery

A great evening of live jazz covering well known standards including blues, bossas and ballads from Liz's extensive repertoire, performed in the relaxed and intimate surroundings of the venue's Sock Gallery.

Liz was born and grew up in Loughborough and continues to live locally. A graduate in Music from Bath Spa University, she has recently released her new CD entitled You Don't Know What Love Is.

Tonight's special guest performer is Bruce Adams (Trumpet and Flugelhorn).

Not only is Bruce one the jazz scene’s most dramatic and stimulating performers, he is also a tremendously affable companion. A band-room with the Glaswegian Mr. Adams present is a happy and riotous place. However, on stage, Bruce Adams takes the playing side of things very seriously and he cut his musical teeth on solid commercial work – on cruise liners, in dance halls, music halls, and even worked in support of comedy legends like, Tony Hancock and Freddie Starr. He has been a regular jazz poll-winner and with his spectacular range and power on the instrument has been in demand as a lead, and jazz trumpet man.

Bruce has often worked as a special guest soloist with both the Scottish Radio Orchestra and the BBC Big Band. Bruce’s long-running musical partnership with saxophonist Alan Barnes has produced many plaudits and acclaimed recordings.
