Chris Bowden at the Blue Piano, Edgbaston
5th & 26th August, 7pm

Chris B
The superb saxophone talent of Chris Bowden is no secret to contemporary jazz-music lovers in the city of Birmingham. Bowden quite literally blewthe roof off The Blue Piano in a recent residency with Venezuelan dynamo Edgar Macias and he returns for two special dates in August with invited guests. Do not expect the great American songbook from this young man – brave, adventurous, sometimes improvised, always exciting – this is jazz music at its best

Entry is free and for more information about the Blue Piano or to book a table for dinner, visit www.thebluepiano.co.uk
