NEIL YATES SEXTET

Plays the music of Jimmy Heath

This outstanding sextet, which debuted at the 2019 Llandudno Jazz Festival featuring arrangements by Liam Byrne, takes inspiration from the pen of legendary saxophonist Jimmy Heath and a

selection of classic albums including Playboys (1956) by Chet Baker & Art Pepper, as well as Triple Threat (1962) and On The Trail (1964) recorded by Jimmy Heath himself. Delivering a varied programme of some choice Heath numbers interspersed with arrangements by Art Blakey, Freddie Hubbard etc, the sextet promises something for everybody, and with a front line comprised of NEIL YATES (trumpet), DEAN MASSER (alto sax) and MIKE HOPE (tenor sax), plus RICHARD WETHERALL (keyboards),

ED HARRISON (double bass) and GAZ HUGHES (drums), it's hard to think of a better band to round off the current season of concerts in Llay.

Gan gyflwyno rhaglen amrywiol o rywfaint o rifau Mynydd Bychan ynghyd â threfniadau gan Art Blakey, Freddie Hubbard ac ati, mae'r sextet yn addo rhywbeth i bawb, a gyda rheng flaen yn

cynnwys NEIL YATES (trwmped), DEAN MASSER (alto sax) a MIKE HOPE ( tenor sacs), ynghyd â RICHARD WETHERALL (allweddellau), ED HARRISON (bas dwbl) a GAZ HUGHES (drymiau), mae'n anodd meddwl am fand gwell i ddod â'r tymor presennol o gyngherddau yn Llay i ben.

Mae'r sextet rhagorol hwn, a ddarganfuwyd yng Ngŵyl Jazz Llandudno 2019 yn cynnwys trefniadau gan Liam Byrne, yn cymryd ysbrydoliaeth gan gorlan y sacsoffonydd chwedlonol Jimmy Heath a detholiad o albymau clasurol gan gynnwys Playboys (1956) gan Chet Baker & Art Pepper, yn ogystal â Triphlyg. Threat (1962) ac On The Trail (1964) a recordiwyd gan Jimmy Heath ei hun.
