Smokey Joes' jazz Presents: Sara Colman band 'It's Coming on Christmas'

Sara Colman sings jazz in a very special way - she puts heaps of meaning into it both by using the words and by intrinsically understanding how the music works. We’ve asked Sara to come back to Smokey Joe’s Jazz in December to kick start the festive season with a very special performance celebrating the music of Canada’s First Lady of music - Joni Mitchell. Her ability to improvise on the spot is of the highest calibre and what a voice she has!

The quartet will comprise: Alex Steele (piano), Paul Jefferies (bass) and Jonathan Silk (drums).

Atlas - Peaceful King Tour

Atlas aim to create a progressive and unique sound with a clear identity – one that blends together elements of acoustic jazz with electronics, textural soundscapes, free improvisation, driving grooves which underpin strong melodies and dense harmonies.

The compositions are inspired by an eclectic mix of musical influences ranging from jazz luminaries such as Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis, Pat Metheny and John Taylor, as well as pianists including Matt Mitchell, Liam Noble and Aaron Parks.

Atlas - Peaceful King Tour

The exciting cross-pollination of music, especially discernable around the sphere of contemporary instrumental and vocal jazz, has become a strong, progressive feature of today’s fresh, creative outputs. Keyboardist and composer Rebecca Nash is becoming increasingly visible in this area of the British scene; a major player in Entropi, Paradox Ensemble and Sara Colman’s band, as well as an educator with the National Youth Jazz Collective, Cheltenham Festivals, Birmingham Jazzlines and Birmingham Conservatoire.
