House. Hunter Square (off High Street), 220 1550. 8.30—1 lprn. £4 (£3). One of the most importantjazznien to emerge during the 50s. Rendell was a member of important groups led by John Dankworth and Ronnie Scott in the initial surge of British bop. and later an important band- leader in his own right. His style owes much to the example of Lester Young. but with more modem inﬂuences running through his playing.

830—1 lptn. £3 (£2). This young west coast band are new to me. but their style is described as having a distinct Joe Henderson feel. which is a promising
start. Line-up is leader Les Barrett on drums. Gail McArthur (sax). Tom McNiven (trumpet) and Kevin Mullen (bass).
I Iain Copeland Project The 13th Note. 80 Glassford Street. venue 553 1638'. info 887 4733. 9.30pm. £4 (£3). When he isn't booking The 13th Note. Iain Copeland can be found occupying the drum seat in a variety of bands. including a couple of his own. This new project will explore a slightly different direction to his straight jazz and jazz-funk work. while incorporating elements from both. Celtic music strains are likely to figure strongly in a line-up which will feature electronic instrumentation alongside acoustic guitar. wind instruments. percussion. and bodhran.
