Glasgow-based pianist, keyboardist, and composer Josef Akin presents a mixture of his debut album Flightcase - lauded as “one of the best jazz recordings of the year” by DJ TJ Gorton -  alongside some new and unreleased material recently recorded.

Having sold out London's prestigious Ronnie Scott's in April, Josef and his wonderful band, which features some of the most exciting up-and-coming musicians in the Scottish Jazz scene (Harry Weir, Anoushka Nanguy and India Blue) are delighted to return for their first Glasgow show since April. Expect to be immersed in music by a talented array of vocalists and instrumentalists. Whether on flute, trumpet, vocals, guitar, bass, sax, trombone or keyboards, balafon, keyboards and percussion, each musician gives vent to their own creativity. The result is an unpredictable, but predictably wonderful, show. Not to be missed.
