Bold and adventurous sounds shall abound in Shoreditch. Plus, on vinyl DJ duty, it's the original man-about-town Martin Green, famed for releasing some of the best selling compilations of the 1990s that featured jazzuous lounge classics, and more recently compilations like Britxotica where Brit jazz meets East. it all sounds like another hip happenin' at JAZZTRAIN - this Wednesday 7.30 til late.

Comin' up at JAZZTRAIN - the weekliest jazz weekly in jazzville! 48 Kingsland rd, E2. Free entry. Here's February's line-up....
Weds Feb 6 - Guido Spannocchi Quintet: A radical horn-driven avantly gard exploratory outfit that combines voice, vibraphone, trumpet and alto sax. it's gonna be in-yer-face, in a very extremely positive hard groovin' way.
Weds Feb 13 - Yiasena: Gloriously crafted Aegean sonorities from this young combo, mixing moods from Greece, Turkey and beyond utilising sparse jazzuous guitar motifs with fabulously eastern horn refrains. Other-worldly and outta sight!
Weds Feb 20 - Future Shape of Sound: R n' b, sax n' guitar and down home grooverama from these local swing troopers.
Weds Feb 27 - Dave Hammers' Jet Stream: They're back, thank god. High octane, stratospheric vibraphone-led conga-heavy latin jazz with a sound as big as a small country. Superbly crafted and highly funked up takes on the South American song book... unmissable stuff.

And this eve we have Rory More official at the Lowrey electric organ with Filippo Galli on drums and Guido Spannocchi on alto saxophone. There'll be jazz mixed with bits of mondo mixed with the odd standard and some exploratory sonic adventures. The real deal, right here. And on Dj duty is our favourite 45 rpm-loving dark horse Mark Ellis with vinyl aplenty. Groove on by for our sophisticated mid-weeker. 48 Kingsland Rd, E2 8 til late. FREE ENTRY
Continuing with and championing progressive vibrations, this week at JAZZTRAIN the Rory More Electric Organ Duo brings on the moody groove.

He'll be joined by Filippo Galli on jazzinating drums, and guest horn traveler Guido Spannocchi on alto. DJ Mark Ellis will maintain our Shoreditch midweek happenin' with curated vinyl jazz gems. See you then. Weds 30 Jan, 48 Kingsland Rd, e2. 8 til late. FREE ENTRY
JAZZTRAIN! Tonite! It's gonna be cookin' with our mood crusader Greg Foat on electric piano with a superb trio of players getting down to business with him. And, Norway's favourite jazz dj Espen Horne will be keeping the general atmosphere suitably rarified. It all kicks off around 8, but doors will open earlier if you wanna come down and grab a seat or hang loose with the calm before the groove. See you later then. Rolling Stock 48 Kingsland Rd, E2. FREE ENTRY
Set the controls for JAZZTRAIN and Wednesday 23 Jan when we have live on stage sonic adventurer Greg Foat and his quartet. Forward-thinking and exploratory, Greg's music calls to mind the radicalism of early 70s Brit jazz and the arcane moods of continental library recordings. Combine that with a distinctive jazz voice that is definitely 'now' and we're set for a show that's a large blip on the cool radar. Plus, special guest DJ Espen Horne joins us from JASSBOX in Oslo - Norway's most happenin' jazz club and groove get-down. Espen's taste is out-there and floor-filling with a collection that reaches into 'in'... count on unheard finds, unusual sounds and proper jazz curios. Ladies and gents, this is a high-octane Shoreditch groove-in not to be missed. Tell your jazz friends and disseminate the love and hit the 'like' button. JAZZTRAIN, 23 Jan, 48 Kingsland Rd, E2. 8pm til late. FREE ENTRY
[01/17/19] Jazztrain pulled into groovesville last night and had a happenin' time, thanks to Marco Tranchina and his Quartett. Magnifico vibrations and extreme modernism kept our happy punters abuzz... we're looking forward to revisitation from these hard-hittin' cookers. Big shout too, to Chris Lane for a deft selection of jazz 45s, so deft in fact that we didn't notice the odd reggae cut disguised as jazz. Next week it's the Greg Foat Quartett, so that means more fabulousness, and more cool times midweek in Shoreditch. Swing by for the best social in town. 48 Kingsland Rd, E2. 8 til late. FREE ENTRY
