JNE Update

8.00PM SUNDAY 24TH MARCH
COMPASSIONATE DICTATORSHIP
Tori Freestone (saxes); Jez Franks (guitar); Dave Manington (bass); James Maddren (drums)
It’s only three weeks since drummer James Maddren was last at the Bridge, with the Ant Law Quartet, a gig which prompted BeBopSpokenHere reviewer Lance Liddle to describe him as “one of the current drum demi-gods”. And so he is, but he’s in equal company here with a group that’s been steadily building its identity and its reputation since its 2007 formation by guitarist Jez Franks and saxophonist Tori Freestone, both of whom write material for the band and are effectively its co-leaders.
Compassionate Dictatorship’s debut CD ‘Coup d’Etat’ drew comparisons with the great pairing of Joe Lovano and John Scofield, but their most recent album ‘Entertaining Tyrants’ (just released, and available at this gig) demonstrates that they have continued to evolve, both in the confidence of their compositions – tricky, complex, but always accessible - and in the imaginative interplay between the front-line instruments. With potent underpinning from the bass of Dave Manington and Maddren’s brilliantly sympathetic drumming, this is now a band that’s right up there in the vanguard of contemporary British jazz.
A Joint Promotion with Splinter @ The Bridge. We regret to say that there is no wheelchair access to the pub's music room.
THE BRIDGE HOTEL, CASTLE GARTH, NEWCASTLE NE1 1RQ
Admission at the door  £8.00 & £6.00 concessions. Doors open 7.30pm.
