Please note: All gigs are now cancelled until such a time as we can safely reinstate our programme

You will not be surprised to learn after the announcement about pubs and clubs, that the Sports Club decided to close the bar from 17 March 2020, until further notice. So Wakefield Jazz has also had to close.

Dear all at Wakefield Jazz,

.

I hope all is well with you and yours during these strange and unexpected days. We’re so sorry that we can’t come up to Wakefield to play for you this month, it would have been a top night! HOWEVER… we are thrilled to announce that all is not lost and we have recorded all the music we were going to play for you on our new album ‘Thane & The Villeins’, released this year on Hadleigh Jazz Records and is perfect for these days of enforced leisure!

.

Dave Gelly gave the record **** in THE OBSERVER and you can read the full review here.

.

Art is also in conversation with Walter Love here.

.

MOST importantly, even Art’s daughter likes it! Which is the final seal of approval of course.

And order a copy for £10 plus £1.50 p&p direct from George Double: and we’ll send you a secure payment link.

.

In the meantime, stay safe, well… and we hope to see you soon!
