Lunchtime Jazz


You can enjoy a free lunchtime pop-up jazz session in the Amphitheatre of the Sir Ian Wood Building on Friday 25th November from noon until 1.30pm.

One of Scotland’s longest established ‘same-personnel’ jazz quartets, JazzMain is about to celebrate its 13th year and the band will be bringing its blend of ‘Cool Jazz’ to RGU in fine fettle, having performed at the likes of The Bute Jazz festival, Lockerbie Jazz Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe amongst so many other venues this year.

Fronted by tenor saxophonist Nick Gould, the quartet’s nucleus of Gould, pianist Steve Grossart and drummer, Kevin Dorrian were joined three years ago by Ayrshire-based bassist Iain Harkness and his influence was immediate apparent, bringing a fresh foundation to JazzMain’s expansive repertoire that defined that great 50s and 60s ‘Blue Note’ period – think Hank Mobley, Dexter Gordon, Art Blakey, George Coleman and Benny Golson – pop them in a blender…whisk it up…and you have the very essence of JazzMain. Of course, the quartet doesn’t stop there. It’s Jobim-inspired Latin/Bossa/Samba tunes are something to behold as is their superbly inventive playing of some timeless American Songbook classics.


Have a question about finding information or referencing? Drop-in and see us in 321 in the learning centre.

Throughout the semester the library runs regular drop-in sessions where you can just call in, no need to book, and ask any library queries, such as how to develop searching skills, access resources (e.g. journal articles), reference or get dissertation help.

These drop-in sessions take place in IT Lab 321 in the Georgina Scott Sutherland Learning Centre and this week the drop in sessions are:

  • Monday 21st November 09.00-11.00 and 13.00-16.00
  • Tuesday 22nd November 10.00-12.00 and 14.00-16.00
  • Webnesday 23rd November 10.00-11.00 and 13.00-16.00
  • Thursday 24th November 11.00-13.00 and 15.00-17.00
  • Friday 25th November 10.00-11.00 and 14.00-16.00

And can see when they are running for the rest of the semester by taking a look at our classes and drop-ins timetable. We look forward to seeing you there
