Jade Gall to play soul on saxophone

ON Sunday, September 16 Jade Gall will be playing music by Stanley Turrentine, who regularly recorded for the legendary Blue Note record label in its heyday, as part of the regular jazz nights at Marine Theatre bar.

Jade Gall is a classically trained saxophonist who has studied both at Dartington and the Royal Welsh College of Music. She has also rapidly become the go-to choice for jazz, swing, soul and ska bands, including The Simmertones, who have recently had many plays on Radio 2 with their single ‘Perhaps’, which features Doris Day, and ‘Michael Campari and the Solar System’ with whom she played at Glastonbury Festival.

Jade will be focusing on the music of Stanley Turrentine, accompanied by Philip Clouts at the piano. Pittsburgh saxophonist Turrentine was a pioneer of the Blue Note soul jazz style, playing with many of the greats including Ray Charles, Max Roach and Jimmy Smith. He also played with his wife, Hammond organist Shirley Scott, on such recordings as ‘Soul Shoutin” and ‘The Soul Is Willing’.

Tickets for the event cost £8 in advance or £12 on the door. To book, call 01297 442138 or visit www.marinetheatre.com. Please note, this event is upstairs and seating is limited.
