THE Impossible Gentlemen step to the fore at The Stables this evening, for an improvisational jazz driven affair.

Splash £15 and hear pianist Gwilym Simcock and his pals from 8pm.

Tickets for funny man Jon Richardson tomorrow night have sold out, and it’s standing room only for Wine, Women & Song on Saturday, so make it snappy for if you want to see Suzy Bogguss, Gretchen Peters and Matraca Berg at work.

The Raul Malo Band return on Monday night, promoting new album Sinners & Saints, but every last ticket has gone for Reginald D Hunter on Tuesday night too. Last up in the Jim Marshall auditorium on Wednesday is the first of two nights in the company of 10CC.

You know the songs – I’m Not In Love, Dreadlock Holiday and The Things We Do For Love. Now go hear them in the live.

It’s a busy time on stage 2 this week too, with Chantel McGregor (above left) live this evening. The exceptional blues-rock guitarist already shares a friendship and mutual appreciation with fellow ace Joe Bonnamassa.

Oh, and she is the first person in the history of Leeds College of Music to ever achieve a 100% pass mark with 18 distinctions. She is something else.

Tomorrow night, catch the John Young Band, on Saturday the stage is set for Terry Emm & Orwell and Los Piantados play on Tuesday.

>We must also mention the return of the annual Music in the Garden season, held in the Rectory Gardens, which launches on Saturday.

Jazz on a Summer’s Day will be led by Alan Barnes at 11.30am, followed at 2.30pm by the Charlie Wood Trio with a sneak preview of music that will feature on his forthcoming album Lush Life.

On Sunday, join The National Saxophone Choir of Great Britain.

More on the season, here next week.
