VOCAL super-group Sector7 – appearing at the Bonington Theatre, Arnold, on Thursday in the final Jazzsteps gig this autumn – is an exciting septet injecting a new dimension into jazz and soul.
An unusual line-up of four exceptional singers and a jazz trio, Sector7 explore styles encompassing soul, jazz, folk and gospel, taking each to a new level with exciting, vocal harmony-centred arrangements.
Singers Sarah Ellen Hughes, Emma Smith, Billy Boothroyd and Paddy Clarke will be accompanied by George Moore (piano), Tim Thornton (bass) and Chris Draper (drums).
The septet combines its musicians' considerable individual talents for a fresh take on favourite tunes from Gershwin to Stevie Wonder, along with original songs and re-inventions of gospel classics.

They have been together for a little over a year but in this time Sector7 have recorded and released an EP, gained critical acclaim and been invited to perform at such prestigious gigs as the Lancaster International Concert Series and the London Jazz Festival.
THE last in the series of Live In The Libraries features the Nottingham Youth Jazz Orchestra and the NYJO Combo – a splinter group taken from the lead improvisers from the big band. Only the larger orchestra will play the first concert at Mansfield Library in West Gate, on Sunday, starting at 1pm. The big band and combo then play Southwell Library in King Street, on Monday at 8pm, and Worksop Library, Memorial Avenue, on Tuesday at 8pm.
With three successful tours to the Edinburgh Festival to its credit, the Nottingham Youth Jazz Orchestra present a classy and eclectic entertainment mix including big band classics, swing, jazz standards and interpretations of popular vocal tunes. They'll be blowing hot to warm up the winter nights.
MAKING their debut for Priory Jazz in Loughborough on Thursday is Washington Whirligig, a lively Yorkshire-based outfit which features a couple of familiar faces from their previous visits to the club: Southside Jazz band leader Wil Robinson (trumpet) and Silver Leaf's David Hepworth (reeds).
With their title deriving from the Charlie Barnet big band classic, anything could happen!
