Ambience

Overlooking the golden sands of Dorset’s premier Blue Flag beach the Jazz Café offers a year round retreat where you can relax and unwind in front of a roaring fire making use of our library, listen to the music, gaze at the surf or simply bask in the sun on our terrace.

The relaxed surroundings, including the wooden flooring and beech bar counter, the antique clocks and nautical prints, even the Donald McGill inspired saucy postcards compliment the informality and intimate style of service.

We welcome families of all sizes as well as well-behaved dogs.

So come down and soak up the unique Jazz Café atmosphere and its beautiful surroundings and we will guarantee you a relaxing and truly satisfying experience which, we hope, will make you want to come back again…and again. Like many of our regular customers do.

FRIDAY 25TH APRIL 2014                

3 course £42.00                 2 course £37.00                 music only £17.00

JIM MULLEN (Guitar)                    

Perhaps the U.K’s best loved guitarist of the last 40 years, Jim Mullen is an artist with class dripping from his fingertips. Since his 1969 London debut with Brian Auger’s Oblivion Express Mullen’s distinctive thumb picking style and his warm funky tone have charmed and delighted audiences across the U.K. He played with the Average White Band and the much-admired British jazz-funk outfit Morrissey/Mullen.

 

“…With his unique mellow guitar sound….. and his ability to spin a seemingly effortless stream of melody, he never fails to keep your ears fully occupied.” Dave Gelly, The Observer

Having performed as a sideman with such diverse artists as Claire Martin, Jimmy Smith and Mose Allison we are delighted to see Jim Mullen return with the Andy Urquhart Quartet.

FRIDAY 30TH MAY 2014  `             

3 course £45.00                 2 course £40.00                 music only £19.00

TINA MAY (Vocals)
Tina May is a diva in the very best sense of the word. Pure toned, worldly, with a girlish inflection, yet with no overt Americanisms. With an acting and comedy background she is noted for her warmth and charisma and her ability to communicate the essence of the lyric of every song she sings.

“…Tina May is a resourceful singer who finds unlikely songs and polishes them to a brilliant shine…” Dave Gelly, The Observer

Tina May is a perennial favourite at the Jazz Café and she makes a welcome return visit accompanied by the Andy Urquhart Quartet

FRIDAY 27TH JUNE 2014                 

3 course £42.00                 2 course £37.00                 music only £17.00

JOHN ETHERIDGE (Guitar)
One of the world’s most eclectic and respected guitar stylists John Etheridge has won accolades from Pat Metheny, Eric Clapton, even Jimi Hendrix. A stint with jazz-rock pioneers Soft Machine was followed by a collaboration with legendary violinist Stephane Grappelli. He has regularly performed with John Williams and Nigel Kennedy. His current projects include Sweet Chorus, a Grappelli inspired recreation of The Hot Club of France and Zappatistas in which Etheridge’s jazz improvisations meet the music of Frank Zappa.

“John Etheridge likes to give the impression he has no idea what he’s doing. But there’s never a moment’s doubt about his awesome authority whenever he touches a guitar.” John Fordham, The Guardian John Etheridge will be performing with The Andy Urquhart Quartet
