A couple of Schmazz/Jazz North East gigs next week

(Press Release)
Schmazz, the Tyneside jazz promoter set up by local musician Keith Morris, and run by a voluntary committee since his tragic death in a hit and run accident, has managed to secure a rare Tyneside appearance by Shatner’s Bassoon, the young six-piece Leeds based jazz rock outfit tipped by the music press for a Mercury Music Prize nomination this year. This comes after the sell-out Schmazz gig in December showcasing Roller Trio, who were nominated for the 2012 Mercury Music Prize and the 2012 MOBO Awards. 
If that’s not enough to wet (sic!) the appetites of jazz fans, Schmazz’s partner organisation Jazz North East, purveyors of the finest contemporary jazz to Tyneside since 1966, have a real coup the night after, by getting world renowned tenor sax player, Walter Smith III, to bring his American quartet, including Michael Janisch on bass and guitarist Matthew Stevens, all the way from Los Angeles to the region in a co-promotion with The Sage Gateshead. 
“We’re really excited” said Dave Clarke, Jazz North East organiser, “ It’s going to be a wonderful week for jazz on Tyneside and guaranteed to literally blow away those January blues!”
The Schmazz gig featuring Shatner’s Bassoon is at The Cluny in Newcastle’s hip Ouseburn area on Tuesday 29th January at 8.30pm
The Jazz North East co-promotion with The Sage Gateshead featuring the Walter Smith III Quartet is in the Northern Rock Foundation Hall at 8.15pm on Wednesday 30th January.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
