PARRJAZZ on Thursday 27th December 2018
PARRJAZZ Tuesdays are a weekly Jazz Night set up and run by musicians, for musicians and music lovers.
HO HO HO HO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Its our TWIXMAS PARTY!!! YO!!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry to mess with everyones head but due to the inconvenience of xmas day being a Tuesday we have moved our regular night to THURSDAY 27th !!!
And what a party it shall be as we hand the reigns over to BLIND MONK TRIO! Also joining us on the decks Elliot Hutchinson of Dig VInyl !
also featuring special guest MISHA GRAY!!
BLIND MONK formed early 2012 playing arrangements of Thelonious Monk tunes without a pianist! After appearing at many festival/ club dates (Gateshead International Jazz Fest, Mostly Jazz Fest, Manchester Jazz Fest, Marsden Jazz Fest, Liverpool Jazz Fest, Manchester Literature Fest, Buxton International Fest ...), we released our first original CD “Coulrophobia” and have been busy writing and touring ever since.
2018 saw us sign to new label Anti Social Jazz Records and record our third album “Dadderisms” at Manchester’s infamous 80 Hertz studios (GoGo Penguin, Mr Scruff, Mammal Hands ...).
Our latest material forges all our wide ranging influences - jazz, folk, beats, african, asian, classical, cinematic, rock, electronic into a unique sound firmly steeped in the legendary trios of yesteryear but simultaneously yielding a current UK jazz revivalist vibe.
“Dadderisms” is a collection of personal stories of the bond between a father and child. Each track symbolises a quote or phrase a band member’s father would say to him, a 'dadderism'. Often meaningless or nonsensical when heard by others, we can all relate to the one liners our fathers shared with us, whether it had a message or meaning, its a memory of our bond with our fathers.
