Allons Enfants: Kings Place June 10-13

I like the look of the French jazz week at the new Kings Place concert hall by Kings Cross station, which is just announced for June. I like it a LOT. Much as I like the look of the hall, pictured above.

The good news. Kings Place do Saver Seats. The seats cost £9.50 . The hall guarantees you seats, together, and will give you best available. It’s a perfectly proportioned 450-seater hall, and I haven’t found a duff seat yet.

Highlights for me are gypsy genius guitarist Bireli Lagrene and Martial Solal, a unique improviser on solo piano.

Here are the gigs. There are also lectures, talks with recordings . FULL LIST HERE

UPDATE: NB THIS CONCERT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO BIRELI LAGRENE BEING UNEXPECTEDLY TAKEN ILL
