Club 43 at ALTO
Jazz Supper Club hosted at our Alto restaurant on the last Thursday of the month
Radisson Blu Edwardian are proud to honour the hey days of Jazz in Manchester, by recreating one of the most popular clubs in town – Club 43. Once a month in our ALTO restaurant we will be putting on a jazz supper club featuring a specially prepared buffet and showcasing some of the best musicians performing around the circuits today.
Manchester is steeped in JAZZ history…great musicians would come from all over the world to play here in the 50s and 60s, during the hey days of Jazz. The Free Trade Hall would play host to the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Woody Herman, Count Basie, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie and Billie Holiday – these were not just some of the greatest names in jazz, they were the jazz elite!
Created by a man named Eric Scriven, Club 43 was the place to go when you wanted to see great jazz musicians jamming together in a more intimate venue. Now the Manchester jazz scene is being honoured by the recreation of Club 43 as a supper club on the site of the Free Trade Hall by Radisson Blu Edwardian hotels.
