Randy Brecker: "It's still a thrill for me today to stand out front of a big band as the soloist and hear all that sound going on behind you. It brings the best out of me" - (DownBeat June 2019).

Here There and Everywhere.

Truly a vintage night, tonight, with something for everyone so you pays your money and you makes your choice.
For discerning diners with an ear for piano jazz in a Buddist Monk mode (that's Bud Powell and Thelonious) that Stanley Steamer Harley Johnson plays solo at the Cherry Tree Restaurant in Jesmond.
Over at the Jazz Café on Newcastle's Pink Lane the Safe Sextet play their brand of hard bop whilst in North Shields, at the Saville Exchange, John Hallam is with the Roly Veitch Quartet.
Paradoxically, Mike Durham who is the guiding light behind the Saville's Jazz Program is himself performing at Gateshead Fell Cricket club with his West Jesmond Rhythm Kings.
Out in the sticks, the Paul Edis Sextet are at the Queens Hall, Hexham, and the TG Collective are at Hamsterley Village Hall.
That I had such a choice every night!
Lance.
