Chad Taylor Drum Clinic @ Gateshead Old Town Hall. 8th October.

Thursday was a learning experience as Jazz North East staged two workshop events on the eve of the annual On the Outside Festival.
Alto saxophonist Rob Brown and cellist Daniel Levin (participants at the weekend festival) led an afternoon session on the art of improvisation.
The evening session featured New Yorker Chad Taylor in an insipring drum clinic. Several keen students of the sticks assembled on stage with Chad to be taken through the rudiments of time, rhythm and meter. His formidable technique could have been off-putting ('How did he do that?') yet he was prepared to strip it down to the basics and patiently answer each question thrown at him. It became clear that the students weren't too well versed in the world of free jazz/ improvisation. This resulted in Taylor disassembling his kit and handing parts of it to his students. The results were, well, 'interesting'!
Chad Taylor can be heard on the very same stage with his musical peers tonight, tomorrow and again on Sunday.
