What’s On

At Seven we aim to bring the best in local and regional performing arts, and great talent from further afield, plus a diverse range of interesting and entertaining films from all over the world.

Now that autumn is here, events have moved into Seven’s venue, which is laid out cabaret style in a socially distanced format. Events are by ticket only or on a Pay What You Feel basis – these are hard times for musicians and artists so please give generously.

JazzLeeds – Sound of 59

17th December - 8:00 pm

A welcome back to this group by bassist Adrian Knowles that were such a hit at last year’s Jazz Leeds Festival. They celebrate a pivotal year in jazz history. 1959 was special – it saw the release of classic jazz albums by Charlie Mingus, Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck, John Coltrane and many others. “Sounds of 59”, led by bassist Adrian Knowles and featuring some of the best of jazz musicians from Leeds, recreate the music with both music and visual displays.

They combine the calm of cool jazz with the passion and fire of hard-bop, and explore rhythmic intricacy and free jazz along the way.

Seminal albums they touch upon include:Joel Purnell Tenor Saxophone, Jim Corry Alto Saxophone, Mark Chandler Trumpet, Kevin Holbrough Trombone, Jason Scott Piano, Adrian Knowles Double Bass, Caroline Boaden Drums
