Konrad Wisniewski Quartet Saxophonist Wisniewski has been off sharpening his technique and ideas at Berklee College. and is the latest in a long line of Scottish jazzers to follow Tommy Smith to the famous Boston jazz school. Check out what he's picked up (this replaces Colin Steele Plays Kind of Blue. which now moves to April). Henry’s Jazz Cellar. Edinburgh, Thu 5—Sat 7 Feb.
Courtney Pine The saxophonist (pictured) has more than secured his place as the most popular instrumentalist on the British jazz scene through his embracing of a crossover philosophy that embraces jazz. funk. soul. reggae. garage. hip hop and lots more. His regular audience is notably younger and more club-oriented than for most jazz, and it will be interesting to see how it goes down in the formal concert hall setting. Usher Hall. Edinburgh, Sat 7 Feb.
Tina May and Brian Kellock+ Tina May remains one of the very best jazz singers in the country, in what is increasingly a crowded but not always distinguished field. She teams up in these gigs with the Brian Kellock Trio. and will doubtless perform material from the sumptuous I’ll Take Romance, her most recent album. Tolbooth. Stirling, Fri 73 Feb; Tron Theatre.
