jon_thorne_live_4As Christmas decorations are appearing on high streets across the Island, there are three wise men beginning their seasonal journey this Friday (7th November) at Ventnor Arts Club.

In this case the three sages are sax supremo Gary Plumley, big bass sounds by Jon Thorne and guitar guru Nick Page.  Together they unleash some of the most searing, hot jazz around under the name of Wrath of Sages.

The last time they appeared at the club they were playing as a unit for the first time; not that anyone guessed. This time, with a few more sessions under their bridges, they’re ready for different again. Jazz is of course improvised and evolves on the night but these three musicians are so on top of their game that they can take it anywhere they fancy and wherever the groove goes.
