The group celebrates the musician and composer Wayne Shorter – famous for his contribution to a wide spectrum of jazz including Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, his own Blue Note recordings, his time with the Miles Davis Quintet and Weather Report.

Wild Flower is led by tenor saxophonist Matt Anderson who was awarded Young Musician of the Year in 2010.

On trumpet is Laura Jurd, who is the recipient of a hatful of awards for her playing and compositions. She regularly plays at London’s top venues and is very active on the UK scene.

Jamil Sheriff is one of the most highly regarded pianists in the country and is also a highly regarded composer.

A tutor at the Leeds College of Music, Jamil plays regularly with many groups as well as leading his own ensembles.

Sam Vicary, bass, and Sam Gardner, drums, have built a rapport playing with a variety of top jazz musicians.

This promises to be an unmissable evening for £7 on the door. Music starts at 8.45pm.
