To celebrate our 5th anniversary Seven Jazz Leeds proudly present: "The Impossible Gentlemen" on Sat 23 June 2012. It will be good to see this perfectly balanced transatlantic band playing in Leeds - one of the most exciting and satisfying jazz collaborations for a very long time. There will be a particular joy in hearing the north's jazz son Mike Walker finally getting some of the attention and acclaim he so thoroughly deserves.
It is unusual for jazz groups to have a title that isn't simply the leaders name or a reference to their home town or club. But the Anglo-American quartet the Impossible Gentlemen are an unusual jazz ensemble, bridging both the Atlantic and the generations. There are 40 years between the groups oldest member, the bassist Steve Swallow, and its youngest, the pianist Gwilym Simcock. At the London launch of their eponymous album, Simcock confessed that it is also the first time in his career that there has been a T-shirt to sell as well as records.
