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! Tickets: 0191 443 4661 or on line - www.thesagegateshead.org.

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to them all other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.

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.
