Two stupidly exciting nights of live music in the best venue in town…get them in your diary...
Morecambe Jazz Club - Wednesday 13th March
NEIL C YOUNG/SOUND GAMES
Two time Grammy Award nominee and rising international jazz guitarist, Neil C Young brings his trio to the first Morecambe Jazz Club of the year. 'Simply beautiful, such beautiful melodies with all the inner movement that just lets everyone have something to listen to' (Michael Kent Smith, US), 'Excellent feel good instrumental jazz' (Keith Ames, Musicians Union).
The sound of games, a game of sounds. Energetic compositions and improvisations inspired directly by sporting activity from the mind of Peter Moser and created for Manchester Jazz Festival in 2012, now reenacted by local Lancaster musicians.
‘He makes you laugh, cry and want to dance... Peter Moser is a brilliant and versatile musician’ (The Guardian)

The trio combine rhythms, textures and improvisations from world music, jazz and folk in their music. Royst has been described as having 'simmering power and surging beauty' (Vibrations Magazine).
