A NEW season of HX7 Jazz gets underway at the Trades Club next Thursday, September 27, with some hot Latin jazz from Loz Speyer’s Timezone.

This six-piece band effortlessly creates the best Cuban dance grooves, while adding some great original tunes into the mix.

Trumpeter and bandleader Loz Speyer has been composing for and leading his own groups since about 1990, including Inner Space Music, a quintet with Chris Biscoe and Rachel Musson.

Speyer is joined on the front line by alto sax and bass clarinet player Martin Hathaway, who is probably best known for his long association with jazz pianist and composer Michael Garrick,

Guitarist Stuart Hall is a multi-instrumentalist, equally renowned for his talent on violin, double bass, and many other string instruments including the oud, pedal steel, bazouki, and the Cuban trés.

He is joined by the sought-after Dave Mannington on bass, and highly acclaimed Cuban and Brazilian percussion specialists Andy Ball on drums and Maurizio Ravalico on congas.

HX7 organiser Dave Nelson said it is an exciting line-up producing equally exciting music.

“It’s great to be starting a new season with such a lively and supremely accomplished band,” he said. “It should turn out to be a bit of a party, I think.”

Doors open at 7.30pm with live music starting at 8pm. To book advance tickets priced £12/£9, call 01422 845265.
