Trio re-lights spark for Glasgow jazz residency

Glasgow jazz combo Spark Trio resume their monthly residency at the city’s Swing venue in Hope Street on riday, January 19.

The group features the widely experienced accompanist and bandleader Paul Harrison on organ, guitarist Joe Williamson, of award-winning young band Square One, and his colleague from Square One, drummer Stephen Henderson, who was chosen as One to Watch in 2018 by the London-based magazine Jazzwise last month.

To launch the new season, they’ll perform a programme of their own arrangements of jazz standards and original compositions before being joined on February 16 by Scottish National Jazz Orchestra trombonist Chris Greive. Saxophonist Konrad Wisziewski, of New Focus, who won the Instrumentalist of the Year title at the 2017 Scottish Jazz Awards, will guest with the trio on March 23.
