Cold Wet and Sockless? Entertaining Nevertheless!


The Weave. L to R: Rob Stringer (Piano); Tony Peers (Trumpet); Hugo Harrison (Double Bass); Tilo Pirnbaum (Drums); Tony Ormesher (Guitar); Martin Smith (Leader/Trumpet)


The Weave is a Liverpool based Jazz Sextet which veers more towards modern jazz, but with their own entertaining, exuberant and amusing twist as demonstrated in their  video, “Cold Wet and Sockless”. 

Led by trumpeter/composer Martin Smith, this is Scouse Jazz with a difference.

One review infers that The Weave “can be Satchmo-like … you can easily picture yourself sitting in a dark and smokey American jazz club. This is no wonder, since the two trumpeters have played in a New Orleans-style band for some years.”

So fellow Jazzers, they may not be the full monty when it comes to New Orleans Revivalist Jazz, but they are for entertainment value and you may well enjoy “Cold, Wet and Sockless”.
