Band On The Wall Playlist – August 2016

It’s a busy August at Manchester’s flagship live music venue – Band on the Wall. This month I focus on the appearance of exciting New Yorkers Two Many Zoos on 2nd August – a gig which is already sold out, the New Orleans street music of the Hot 8 Brass Band on 4th August, also sold out, and the fantastic news of a CD launch event for legendary horn man Bill Evans on 12th August. In between recent and brand new releases from across the wide spectrum of jazz.
