Azhar Saffar at the Riverfront

The Azhar Saffar Quartet brings a unique blend of bebop violin and Latin grooves to Newport this Thursday (November 23) for the latest Jazz Packet session at the Riverfront arts centre.

Azhar is best known as the vocalist with one of the UK's leading Brazilian bands, Sirius B, but the quartet gives her the chance to explore her love of jazz.

If you were hoping to see Nigel Kennedy's cancelled jazz concert at St David's Hall this week, you'll find this gig to be very much in the same vein.

And once again I'll be hosting the night and will be playing some appropriate tunes before the gig and during the interval.

It's the last Jazz Packet session of 2006 - if we have a good turnout, we'll do a few more in 2007.
