The John East Project is led by vocalist and Hammond organ player John East, becoming a popular and regular feature at the Club since their first appearance here six years ago. John has played the Hammond for decades, working with musicians such as John Etheridge, Katie Kissoon and Phil Robson. His stellar band comprises Mark Fletcher-drums, "Level" Neville Malcolm-bass and the remarkable Carl Orr on guitar, together with a powerhouse horn section of Scott Baylis-trumpet and the great Dave Lewis-sax. Tonight the group will perform material from that first gig as well as their brilliant debut album (launched at the Club) which features well known vocal standards as well as some instrumental tunes, with the emphasis on melodic jazz driven along by the distinctive Hammond sound. In addition, we hear that John and the band are preparing to make a new record, so they will be playing a selection of tunes from that upcoming project as well for you to enjoy. A fun, engaging gig.
