IT’S jazz, jazz, jazz all the way again at restaurant 121 in Jesus Pobre.
After many years of abstinence, thanks to new owners Simon and Fiona Godfrey, this once centre of jazz is again opening its doors to lovers of swing, blues and modern jazz.
And what a line up we are promised.
The ever popular Colin Fraser will be fronting the sessions with his quintet starring Geoff Britton on drums, Gerry Haim, keyboards, Julio Fuster bass, and tenor-man George Watts alternating with Grahame Shepherd, tenor sax and flute.
The whole brand new jazz club package will kick off on Tuesday April 24th at 8.00pm with another session booked two weeks later on May 8th.
Plans are to get the joint jumping throughout the summer on a weekly basis as soon as possible. Apart from the ‘121 All Stars,’ the management expects loads of visiting musicians and vocalists to drop by, no doubt carrying mysterious cases of all shapes and sizes housing everything from a harmonica to a fold-away-tuba.
The inner man and woman will be well catered for during the sessions with a variety of Jazz Menu’s, plus snacks complimenting their well stocked bar.
121 special Sunday roast dinners will also be returning to the cottage style restaurant, as well as normal weekly service.
Closed Sunday evenings and Mondays.
