Arts: Jazz club's new move.

Byline: Joe Riley

LIVERPOOL Jazz Club is moving around the corner from the Metro in Victoria Street, to the basement of Lennon's Bar in Mathew Street.

The result, say organisers, is a more intimate setting and cheaper drinks-the latter a sop to students.

David Fishel, pianist of the club house trio, notes: "In 175 Monday sessions at the Metro, we built up a bit of a cult following and managed to host 350 musical guests."

Celebrity fans included Natasha Hamilton and the entire backing band for Corrine Bailey Rae, all of whom sang, plus McFly, Busted, Shane Richie and Ian Broudie.

The club also helped new faces like Ali Singleton.

The success led to the opening of two other jazz clubs - one in Lark Lane, at Vinyl (Thursdays) and at the Village Inn, Woolton (Tuesdays).

David is optimistic about the new city centre venue.

"Let's face it, you can't get a better musical address in Liverpool than Mathew Street."
