On the lookout for top local jazz club action in east London next week? A big heads up certainly for Magpie trio who are led by drummer-leader Sam Jesson erstwhile habitué of the Camden Con Cellar Bar scene and an alumnus of the Birmingham Conservatoire. Empirical's double bassist Tom Farmer and tenor sax ace George Crowley heard recently in fine fettle at the Vortex complete the set-up. Acquaint yourself with their version of Ellington's 'The Single Petal of a Rose' led off absorbingly by the arco bass of Farmer and which was on last year's Magpie Trio Live album. Ellington's own fabled 'Queen's Suite' version was solo piano. The trio play Eastside in Leytonstone next Tuesday. Info & Tickets
