Formerly known as the Blue Max Big Band, Out of the Blue was formed in the early nineteen nineties by members of a jazz workshop run by Andy Hamilton. With a repertoire drawn from the classic swing arrangements of the Basie and Ellington orchestras together with more modern numbers by the likes of the great Sammy Nestico, the band has built a high reputation in Birmingham and the Midlands.
They are now under the musical direction of Jo James and feature singer Tracy Lovejoy who brings a wonderful "Northern Soul" feel to their vocal numbers.
Photographer Garry Corbett took this wondereful photo of NY based Jazz guitarist Gilad Hekselman playing to a packed house at the Silvershine Jazz Club. He also wrote the review for The Jazz Breakfast below.
Remember Kansas Smitty’s and the two fabulous gigs they played at the Silvershine Jazz Club. We hope to get them back as soon as we can, but in the meantime we have a single they cut recently on sale for £5. It’s two fabulous tracks of stunningly crazy Jazz, so if you’re like me and you like your vinyl then you’ll love this!

We have also created a downloadable version with a text box where you can write in details of specific events at the club (Perfect for performers promoting their own gigs).
