Magic Ya Ya Band at Village Jazz Festival Leeds at Seven Arts
Dave Kane - electric bass & composer. Chris Sharkey – guitar, Matt Bourne – keys, Si Kaylor & James Mainwaring - tenor saxes Ollie Dover - Bari sax. Joost Hendrickx & Sam Hobbs - drums.
Dave Kane wowed us with his new group the Magic Ya Ya Band at Seven Jazz earlier this year so we had to get them back again to open our 2nd Village Jazz Festival! The band features some of the top players from the burgeoning Leeds jazz scene. They have a great groove and feature punchy and brassy unison passages that led into some collective improvisation and then into individual solos. The music has great energy and attractive textures. It’ll be great fun with something of a party atmosphere.
