Dave O'Higgins with the Noel Dennis Quartet - Report by Hil

I didn't see any of the usual jazz fans at the gig in Middlesbrough last night. Pity as they missed a real treat. It was Dave O'Higgins on Sax, Noel & Adam Dennis on trumpet and piano + Adrian Tilbrook and Andy Champion on drums and bass. The music, naturally, was great. "Blue Monk" is one of my favourites and they included it.
The venue is a really lovely big room, with a huge screen at the back of the stage (Adrian would be able to tell you about it better than I.) Apparently it's part of the college (don't know much about the college other than its name, MTLC) however, there was lots of secure parking outside. The people who put the gig on are hoping to make it a regular jazz gig and intend to bring more biggish names in. Might well be worth you checking it out at future jazz gigs?

I'd have loved to have gone but I've had a busy week. Hope to catch future gigs.

Just so folks aren't looking around for ages for this college I am sure the intials outside are NTC and it's in Cargo Fleet.

Hi Lance

I hope the snow isn't too bad in Newcastle - I have attached a few pics from the Middlesbrough gig, mainly of the venue! which is fantastic (more Manhattan than the Boro). I hope it keeps putting jazz on as it will be a hit with the punters once they have been and seen it and got over the historic (and unfounded) Middlesbrough perceptions - they will definitely want to come back.
