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.
