Preview: NYJO @ Darlington

On Monday 4th July, Darlington welcomes the fantastic National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO). This world famous band has been showcasing the country’s most talented young jazz musicians for over 50 years and this is the first time that NYJO will have performed in the town. Shaune Eland from Darlington Jazz Festival says, ‘this is a real coup for the town to have such a talented group of young musicians performing at Central Hall. The festival team have worked hard over the past five years to bring established jazz artists to stage and this is our biggest project to date. 
Musicians from Durham Music Service are excited to be performing alongside the band and this is the second instalment of a partnership for the County Big Band and NYJO – the first part being Sebastiaan De Krom directing and performing with Darlington’s young musicians at this year’s jazz festival in April and the final part being a workshop with NYJO Ambassadors led by Musical Director Mark Armstrong.’
Many of the UK’s most prolific jazz musicians have performed with NYJO, often becoming established stars whilst playing with the band. Alumni include Guy Barker, Dennis Rollins and Amy Winehouse to name just a few. 
The band tours regularly at venues in the UK, as well as in Europe, USA, Australia and New Zealand.  From a swinging rhythm section to incredibly talented soloists, this is a great opportunity to see the band in the North East. 
Durham County Youth Big Band will play in support. Doors are 6:45pm with music from 7pm.
Tickets available from Dolphin Centre on 01325 388406 or online at www.ticketsource.co.uk £10 (Young musicians £8) for family tickets contact darlingtonjazzfestival@live.com.

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.
