The Three Tenors @ The Quakerhouse. May 24

(Review by Russell/Tony Eales).
Tony Eales, Bebop Spoken Here’s man with his ear to the ground Down South, got in touch with news of a superb session at the Quakerhouse in Darlington last Sunday (24). Andy Bennett is soon to relocate south (way down south) and before does he invited a few friends to join him at a Darlington Jazz Club session. Bennett, known for his days playing alto and soprano saxophones with the now disbanded Voice of the North Jazz Orchestra, chose to play tenor making it a three-tenor frontline in the company of the brilliant Alex Baker and the equally brilliant Will Howard.
Eales reckons it was something special. With those three trading, take TE at his word! Bennett as tutor had more than a little to do with the emergence of Baker and Howard. Three outstanding musicians working with a seriously good rhythm section, it appears that this Quakerhouse gig was one to be at. TE reports bassist Amy Baker was nothing short of superb alongside regular side-kick Stephen Fletcher (drums) and friend of the Bakers, from Sheffield, pianist Chris Noble. Now, should Bennett & co decide to do it again… where’s that diary?                
Russell.
