Gilad Atzmon presents Artie Fishel & The Promised Band

THE Award winning Jazz musician Gilad Atzmon & The Promised Band, introduce the freaky genius of Artie Fishel, at Southport Arts Centre on Saturday 7 June 2007 at 8pm. 

Atzmon's latest project sees him assuming the character of the anarchic, subversive and deeply hilarious Artie Fishel, a brilliant but mad Jewish saxophonist, who is convinced that jazz isn't a black American art form but was born in the ghetto's of Eastern Europe and he is determined to bring it back home!

An exhilarating show of 2 halves with all new music from Atzmon’s powerhouse quartet featuring electrifying hard bop, insurgent world jazz explorations and heartfelt beautiful ballads Atzmon style! Expect twisted Klezmer versions of the Great American songbook, Mashed up drum 'n' bass, fake smooth jazz and even some burning jazz as Atzmon and co take you on a journey through Fishel's madcap musical world.  Featuring Gilad Atzmon sax, John Turville keys, Koby Israelite accordion and vocals, Yaron Stavi bass, Asaf Sirkis drums, tbc guitar.

The rhythm is gonna get you!!

AS part of the Southport International Jazz Festival, Cuba’s leading group Sierra Maestra return to the UK after the disappointment of last year’s cancellation, to showcase their authentic Cuban roots music, from son to salsa, at Southport Arts Centre on Friday 1 June 2007.

Sierra Maestra are among the leading exponents of one of the world’s most seductive forms and one of the greatest dance bands in the known universe. Their fusion of African rhythm, Spanish melody with its roots in Cuban son is music that appeals to all ages and is enjoying a worldwide popularity.  Celebrating over 30 years together, the 8 piece are no strangers to tragedy, when in 2005 lead singer and founder member, José Antonio Rodríguez, died suddenly. Determined to continue the legacy, the group auditioned and found a worthy replacement in new singer, Jesús Bello Díaz, who won sonero of the year in 1995 in the annual Cuban national competition.

Sierra Maestra are an Experience (with a capital E!)
