Bryan Corbett is widely regarded as one of the UK's finest working jazz musicians, featuring on sessions with the likes of Mica Paris, Siedah Garrett, Ben E King, Brand New Heavies, Jocelyn Brown, Beverley Knight and... Well that's a mere fraction of the names he works with when not piecing together his solo act or is busy curating Jazz events in cities around the world. It's a massive and unmissable opportunity then, to see Bryan play in Bearwood, Birmingham (adjacent) with a band of stellar musicians in on the act.

"We're going to celebrate the year 1959 in jazz," Bryan said. "That year saw the release of some of the most revered jazz albums, such as Miles Davis' 'Kind of Blue', Mingus' 'Ah Hum', Ornette Coleman's 'The Shape of thing to come', also Horace Silver 'Blowing the blues away', amongst others from Dave Brubeck and Benny Gilson etc etc..."

Even people with a cursory interest in music would agree with Bryan that 1959 was one of the greatest years for jazz.

"We'll be picking some choice tracks from those big albums."

Bryan's line up includes Chris Bowden on Saxophone, Matt Ratcliffe - Piano, Carl Hemmingsley - Drums with bass player Tom Hill who is coincidentally the current voice of Tony the Tiger - (love this info so much!).

It's gonna be cooking and cool. Don't miss...
