Hull Jazz Festival

19-20 July 2019

We're back with the 27th Summer Edition of Hull Jazz Festival in July 2019.

Opening the festival at Hull Truck Theatre on Friday 19th July are two of today's leading ladies of vintage jazz. Vimala Rowe and Juliet Roberts perform the music of Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, with an incredible band led by Janette Mason. 

Our triple bill at Hull Truck Theatre on Saturday 20th July kicks off with John Etheridge's Sweet Chorus, a personal tribute by guitar legend Etheridge to his mentor and inspiration, Stéphane Grappelli. John will be joined by Chris Garrick (violin), Dave Kelbie (guitar) and Andy Crowdy (bass).

Fans of the spiritual jazz of Alice Coltrane and John Coltrane are in for a treat as Alina Bzhezhinska Inspiration Quartet take the early evening studio slot on Saturday 20th July. Today’s foremost interpreter of Alice Coltrane’s music, harpist/composer Alina will also present her own stunning original work.

We wrap up our Saturday triple bill with a rare live performance by enigmatic saxophonist/composer Steve Williamson. Performing with his powerhouse young trio and members of Tomorrow's Warriors' StringTing, he'll be exploring the links between contemporary classical and progressive jazz.
