Gateshead International Jazz Festival 2013 Preview

Friday 5 April. Hall One. 7:30 pm
National Youth Jazz Orchestra with Jacqui Dankworth, Mark Nightingale & Jason Yarde + Jambone.
(Preview by Russell)
The ninth Gateshead International Jazz Festival opens in style with a rare north of England performance by the renowned National Youth Jazz Orchestra. Some of the finest young musicians in the land will take to the stage in Hall One at the Sage under the direction of Mark Armstrong to play a host of familiar big band charts and some specially commissioned new arrangements. The band’s pedigree is such that established performers welcome an invitation to appear as a special guest. The Sage audience can expect to hear the impeccable Jacqui Dankworth, the world class trombonist Mark Nightingale and the brilliant saxophonist Jason Yarde. Ticket holders should take their seats on time as the north east’s pride and joy  - Jambone  - will play an opening set. The Sage Gateshead’s education work has produced many success stories and Jambone is one of them. The region’s premier youth jazz ensemble has worked with a number of top-class jazz musicians over the years and 2013 sees adopted Geordie Tim Garland, a resident of Whitley Bay, working with the band to further develop their talents. The set-list will include several pieces by pianist Paul Edis. If you are yet to get your tickets for this fantastic opening concert be quick as it is sure to be a sell-out!
