Preview JazzMain @ The Globe Jazz Bar

Something special on at Jazz Coop H.Q. this coming Sunday (February 3). Top tenor sax Nick Gould brings JazzMain down from Edinburgh for a gig that can only be described as 'unmissable'.  

Regulars at the Black Swan and the Jazz Café jam sessions who are familiar with Nick's blistering, straight down the middle and no cheating, tenor playing may think he's shown his hand - wrong! With JazzMain you'll discover that he's still got a few aces up his sleeve not least in the form of his Edinburgh cohorts -  Steve Grossart (keys); Iain Harkness (bass); Kevin Dorrian (drums) - who will blow up the storm they did a couple of years back at the Jazz Café  and on a couple of CDs it has been my privilege to review.
I'm excited about this one - it's the real deal!
Lance.
JazzMain - The Globe, Railway Street, Newcastle NE4 7AD. 7:30pm*. £10 (£7 student).
*Probably doors but worth getting there by then anyway to grab a good seat and a beer!
