Featuring 4 of the finest jazz musicians in the East Midlands, 'The New Bag' is a straight-ahead, hard swinging quartet performing both original works and classic hard-bop material. The band has recently been working with Tony Kofi as part of the 'Blue Note & Beyond' project and with Julian Siegel as part of EMJAZZâ€™ â€˜Side by Sideâ€™ project, which has seen the group develop arrangements of some of the greater and lesser known items from the vast Blue Note Label catalogue, including compositions by Horace Silver, Wayne Shorter, Hank Mobley and suchlike. Regular Derby Jazz attendees may have seen the band perform alongside Julian Siegel in October 2015, don't miss the chance to see the band in action as a quartet, where they will be performing more of their own work. THIS IS A CHANGE TO THE BAND FEATURED IN DEDA'S PUBLICITY
