Preview: Tim Garland Quartet - Sage Gateshead.

Saxophonist Tim Garland returns to Sage Gateshead this Friday (October 21) for the third time in three years. This will be my first time and I've heard from various sources what I've been missing.
He's accompanied by his regular band of percussion master Asaf Sirkis, keyboard wizard Jason Rebello and relative youngster, Ant Law who played a fine set with his own quintet in Hexham last year, and was nominated alongside Nigel Price and veteran Jim Mullen in the best guitar category of Jazzwise magazine this year.
Garlands' recent music is influenced by Jazz-rock, various British and American saxophonists, Celtic Music, Latin Music and particularly the music of Chick Corea, with whom he clearly shares enormous mutual respect.
The absence of a bass player in the band, he claims, made him 'search harder as a composer' and gave more freedom to the musicians, including Ant Laws' eight string guitar, Hammond organ and Rhodes electric piano bringing a 'wonderful fat bass end'.
I've just played their excellent latest album One with some striking juxtaposition between baritone and soprano and would recommend this gig to anyone with an ear for Jazz, musicianship, Asian Fusion, instrumental progressive rock or innovative and experimental music generally.

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.
