Hull Jazz Festival

23 to 26 July

Our Summer Edition 2015 opens with a bang on Thursday 23 July when New York Brass Band bring their New Orleans Mardi Gras party to Hull Truck Theatre.

Friday 24 July sees Clare Teal and her Trio at Hull Truck with their fabulous celebration of Doris Day. Across town, at Fruït, we've got a hip-hop double bill featuring MOBO award winning Akala and hip-hop with a big band punch from The Abstract Orchestra, both of whom have blown away the crowds at our Yellow Bus stage at Freedom Festival in recent years.

On Saturday 25 July we're delighted to present A Love Supreme, Gary Crosby Quartet's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the only live performance of Coltrane's legendary album. Featuring MOBO award winner Denys Baptiste on saxophone, early booking is essential.

Our Saturday programme continues with Unfurl's unique blend of Indian ragas, flamenco and Arabic music and we round off the evening with Dread Supreme, putting their Roots spin on influences including Coltrane, 60's protest songs and the music of South African exiles.

To wrap up the weekend, we're hosting a laid-back Jazz Festival Brunch at Hull Truck on Sunday 26 July, with treats for your ears courtesy of Zoë Gilby Quartet and a delicious brunch menu.
