A Portishead music club will be welcoming an international jazz artist this month.

Greg Abate will be at the Speakeasy Jazz Club, in Clarence House, on November 16 at 7.30pm.

The four-time Grammy nominee will be stopping by the venue as a part of his UK tour along with Cass Caswell Trio featuring James Clemas on the piano.

Abate has an extensive list of credits.

He played alto sax for The Ray Charles Orchestra for two years then joined the Artie Shaw Band playing tenor sax in 1986.

Abate is a master of the saxophone and plays with passion, artistry and style, swinging with an eager and easy virtuosity.

It is no wonder why he was inducted into the Rhode Island Hall Of Fame in 2016.

Abate will be performing on November 16.

Tickets, priced £15 can be reserved from Kate Sheridan 01275 848391 or email
