John East Project
John East

John East on vocals and Hammond makes a welcome return to the Fleece and brings with him a stellar line-up.

John East Hammond organ and vocals, Mark Fletcher drums, Neville Malcom bass, Carl Orr guitar, Dave Lewis tenor sax, Dan Priseman trumpet, Daniel Hewson trombone and piano.

The John East Project led by vocalist and organ player John East was formed five years ago and is a regular and popular feature at the 606 Club in Chelsea and elsewhere. John has played the Hammond for many years working with musicians such as John Etheridge, Phil Robson and Katie Kissoon.

John’s stellar band of Mark Fletcher (drums), Carl Orr (guitar), Dan Priseman (trumpet), Neville Malcom (bass), Daniel Hewson (trombone and piano) and the great Dave Lewis (tenor sax) are all (or will become) firm Fleece favourites.

Solstice, featuring John Turville
John Turville

"One of the brightest stars in the jazz firmament" (Ian Mann)returns with friends from the E17 Collective who combine influences from Brazil, New York, and France to serve up music to savour.

John Turville piano, Tori Freestone saxes and flutes, Jez Franks guitars, Brigitte Beraha vocals, Dave Manington bass, George Hart drums

Solstice is an exciting new collaboration between some of the foremost bandleaders and composers emerging from the thriving east London music scene. They have a unified sound drawing on influences from Brazil, New York, and France such as Hermeto Pascoal, Edward Simon and Pierre de Bethmann.

John Turville is a prodigiously talented pianist with very broadly-based resources. “His adventurousness with harmony and the always lyrical yet narratively swerving designs of his improvisations often recall UK piano giant John Taylor's playing" (John Fordham, The Guardian).

With Tori Freestone's robust tenor playing, Bridgitte Beraha who has been bracketed with Norma Winstone and Flora Purim, the staggering improvisational force that is Jez Franks, and the superb back line of Dave Manington and George Hart, this promises to be a special gig.

"Refreshingly joyous music . . . led by the heart, that grips you from the first minute to the last . . .” - Gwilym Simcock

Here is an excellent promo video for Solstice.
