As a bass player Tom Hill is on another level. Hailing from California he has played with the likes of George Shearing, Art Farmer, Mel Tormé and many more, and a nine year stint with Les Brown and the band of Reknown at Capital Records' Hollywood Studio.


We also know Tom as the voice of Tony The Tiger.

Tom Hill always entertains!

Besides Bryan Corbett and Tom Hill we now have the return of the amazing Tony Kofi confirmed. Tony will be playing the music of Andy Hamilton on 1st November. He is a major name on the UK Jazz scene; what you'd call a ‘must see act’; so we’re putting it on a Friday!


Things are looking up at the Silvershine Jazz Club.


  Xhosa Cole Full House  


The Silvershine Jazz Club was packed to the rafters for the Xhosa Cole gig and there was a wonderful vibe throughout the evening. Xhosa joined the Blue Notes to play the music of Andy Hamilton along with some younger musicians on the way up. Also there was an interval set from the ever-so-young Outer Circle. The future of Brummy Jazz looks very bright indeed.


Below is a slideshow of photos that Brian Homer took on the night and posted on Flickr. Feel free to flick through.
