Urban Coffee and Birmingham Jazz have formed a new partnership to bring you a relaxing Sunday afternoon set upstairs in our Church St emporium. Over the next six months, on the second Sunday, we present the best in Birmingham Jazz in jazz duos (apart from August which is a big band!) in an intimate setting. The six gigs demonstrate the variety of jazz talent residing locally.
June’s Sunday Set is riddled with talent and we are very excited about this duo Ben Lee and Anthony Marsden!! Ben Lee is in his fourth year at Birmingham Conservatoire, studying Jazz guitar. He has drawn inspiration from the music of Ornette Coleman and John Zorn, among others, and his partner for the set jazz singer Anthony Marsden’s vocal style has been compared to that of Kurt Elling and Mark Murphy. Hear this unique smooth blend June 14th from 2pm! More info here.
