The Weave

The Weave is a collection of truly world class Liverpool based Jazz musicians playing a repertoire of warm, melodious and largely friendly home grown tunes. For years now Liverpool has been home to a small but extremely vibrant and healthy Jazz community. There is a deeply rooted, direct, honest and often humorous charm that is the hallmark of Liverpool music across the genres, and this is no less true of the Jazzers. The Weave harnesses these qualities and aims to present them to a national and eventualy international audience.

Phil Hargreaves

phil hargreaves is a Liverpool-based instrumentalist and composer working in the field of improvised and experimental music. I began playing as a guitarist in a punk band in the West Midlands, where i grew up, before moving to Liverpool at the age of twenty and buying a tenor sax, both decisions that would radically shape the rest of my life. Initially i was involved in Liverpool's pop scene, recording John Peel sessions with Personal Column, but eventually i moved via streetband work into the jazz field. After stints playing fusion and dinner jazz, i finally found the area where i could fully combine my talents, interests and influences, in improvised music, an area first stimulated by work with Peshkar theatre, and my subsequent study of Indian music with Aziz Zeria in Manchester. I played with guitarist Phil Morton in the duo Bonehouse, and also helped establish the Frakture club in Liverpool, a club space for improvised and experimental music

The Weave: The Weave

Read "The Weave" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

From the perspective of an east of England jazz writer, it can seem like Manchester has the north east's jazz scene to itself, with Liverpool, its near neighbour, putting up little in the way of competition. It's not that Liverpool is un-musical--it is after all the home city of Gerry And The Pacemakers--but its impact on ...
