THE North Wales Jazz Society presents a band which was an enormous hit at two outdoor events this summer.
The Andy Gleave Trio, led by one of the most versatile vocalists and keyboard players in the region, will perform at the Royal British Legion in Llay on Tuesday, November 25.
After studying music at Liverpool University, Andy Gleave’s professional career began with a four or five year dalliance with the pop industry, including a spell with the band Rainbow Cottage.
He soon turned to jazz, although not exclusively, and for many years has divided his time between jazz, pop and rhythm and blues, performing with artists and bands as diverse as Tamla Motown groups The Temptations and The Miracles, jazz greats including trumpeter Bobby Shew, and legendary guitarist Mundell Lowe, and the Shades of Kenton Orchestra, Sounds 2000 and the Art Lester Big Band.
Andy, who is a lecturer in popular music at Wigan and Leigh College, will be joined by Trefor Owen on guitar and Dave Turner on double bass.
The music starts at 8.30pm, and admission is £6, concessions £5. For further information call 01745 812260 or visit www.northwalesjazz.org.uk.
