Tonight @ The Saville Exchange.

Tonight's concert sees the return of Dutch jazz violin virtuoso Tim Kliphuis, currently in the middle of a major European tour, backed by the popular Hot Club trio of local guitar wizard Keith Stephen (Keith & Roly Veitch (gtr), Bruce Rollo (bs), themselves fresh from their latest Scandinavian excursion). An intimate sound, perhaps, but possessed of passion, style and swing ... formidable evocations of those twin giants of French gypsy jazz, Stéphane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt - and more.
Box Office 0191 643 7093 as usual, or pay on the door. Also, a reminder that the Exchange Bistro is open for that pre-concert meal - two courses for £9.95 if ordered before 7.00pm. Reservations advised - phone (0191) 258 7866. Hope to see you there!
