One of the finest jazz musicians that the island of Ireland has ever produced, vibist Anthony Kerr, more widely geographically is in the pantheon albeit a very different player stylistically (because he is very much a soulful straightahead-into-swing player, eg like Bags above with Brother Ray), up there with the free player Orphy Robinson, Empirical's Lewis Wright and Jim Hart, the Belfast-born Kerr is best known for his work with Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames and in recent years appeared on Van Morrison's Keep Me Singing (2016). No stranger to Ronnie's where he has played many times with Georgie however under his own name it is a much rarer sighting in recent years to catch the vibist with his own band. Happening on Sunday evening, the show billed as The Art Of The Vibes features Kerr with double bassist Jeremy Brown and drummer Ed Richardson. Streams from 8pm. Watch via this link

Just a joy Secret Night Gang's 'The Sun' is streaming today. Out of Manchester the band were founded by singer-songwriter Kemani Anderson here on lead vocals (in a Stevie Wonder space into the dreaming initially, then journeying into his own sound as your ears get used to the warmth of his voice and the 1970s sound), songwriter Callum Connell on keys on the track, and bass guitarist Stuart Whitehead – issuing label Brownswood quote Kemani: ''Gospel music has a special place in my heart as it would be the genre of music I would hear my mother sing and shine on the praise and worship team or hear my brother play bass/drums a long with the other musicians in the church.” Brownswood explain that Kemani knew Cal at school playing in the steel band. Also on the track are drummer Myke Wilson, guitarist Jack Duckham, on synth Liviu Gheorghe and on Fender Rhodes, Matt Wilde. Out now
