This day in music On this Day August 23, 1980

David Bowie was at No.1 on the UK singles chart with ‘Ashes To Ashes’ his second UK No.1. Taken from the Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) album, the song continued the story of Major Tom from Bowie’s
‘Space Oddity’. The video for ‘Ashes to Ashes’ was one of the most iconic of the 1980s and costing £250,000, it was at the time the most expensive music video ever made.

Jazzwise News

The Canary Wharf Jazz Festival has been successfully putting on a free weekend of concerts since 2007 and its 11th incarnation featured a host of jazz, latin and crossover acts. An appreciative audience had already gathered at Canada Square Park to hear bop pianist Rob Barron, accompanied by virtuoso vibraphonist Nat Steele and guitarist Colin Oxley.

By contrast, young singer Poppy Ajudha began her set with her tribute to Billie Holiday in the form of an R&B version of ‘Speak Low’, followed by a selection of original tunes and her version of Solange’s ‘Cranes In The Sky’. Cuban violinist Omar Puente (below) had the crowd dancing to his infectious Afro-Cuban grooves while Norfolk’s Mammal Hands provided the ambient chill-out music, starting their set with their now familiar tune, ‘Quiet Fire’.

Saturday’s programme was completed with a fiery and energetic set by Riot Jazz Brass Band who created a party atmosphere in an otherwise corporate enclave of East London, with MC Chunky getting the crowd moving, and drummer Steve Pycroft and sousaphonist Pete Robinson laying down a steady groove to Riot Jazz originals such as ‘Checkmate’.

WildCard LWorms

Sunday began with Brazilian vocalist Luna Cohen and British guitarist Rob Luft performing mellow latin grooves while talented guitarist Clement Regert‘s Wild Card (above) played an eclectic mix of well-known tunes such as Mongo Santamaria’s ‘Afro Blue’ and a unique version of ‘Fever’ with vocalist Annabel Williams, with an all-star band that included trumpeter Graeme Flowers, saxophonist Jim Knight and drummer Sophie Alloway.

The staff at Canary Wharf were on hand to dispense free waterproof ponchos for the many who braved the rain to hear the grooving, ethereal sounds of Shabaka Hutchings and The Comet Is Coming (above) before Pete Wareham’s Melt Yourself Down (pictured top) brought the festival to a close with some intense and upbeat grooves.

(Piano star Jason Rebello guests on the Talking Heads stage with the Southampton Youth Jazz Orchestra, led by Dan Mar-Molinero on soprano sax)

Eighteen months ago the Talking Heads was a small pub on the outskirts of Southampton, presenting local jazz bands once a week in a gloomy back room. Today, having relocated to plush premises twice the size in the centre of town, it has established itself as one of the city’s most popular jazz venues, and is attracting the top UK players. It also means that, taken in conjunction with the city’s other venues, there is now jazz available somewhere in Southampton almost every night of the week.

Pianist Dave Newton says it’s among the best UK jazz clubs he’s played in: “I like it very much. The main room is a nice size to play to and it has a really good stage, a tremendous sound system, an excellent bar and a really comfortable backstage room. There aren’t many local jazz clubs that can supply all that. Long may it continue.”

In fact the pub boasts two concert rooms, each with a full bar. The larger of the two has a wide stage with state-of-the-art lighting and PA, and it’s here that the volunteer-run Southampton Jazz Club presents the likes of Alan Barnes, Gilad Atzmon and Liane Carroll on Tuesdays once a month.

In the smaller adjacent bar, the city’s other voluntary-run club, the Southampton Modern Jazz Club, presents more contemporary jazz free-of-charge every Sunday and alternate Thursdays, in an intimate setting in which the audience is no more than four metres from the band.

The events are organised by two local jazz musicians, tenor saxophonist Lizzie Bennie and drummer Ted Carrasco, who have tried to make the venue the kind of place which they, as musicians, would like to play in themselves. Bennie says: “We’ve both been on gigs where we’ve found ourselves stuck in a corner of a bar with barely a reachable power socket or decent lighting available. Here we provide all these, plus lights for music stands, spare stands as well, and a decent baby grand piano. And with candles on the tables and real ales on tap as well, it gives all the benefits of your local bar with a top quality jazz club vibe.”
