The Sage Gateshead Jazz Festival Preview - Voice of the North Jazz Orchestra w. Jason Yarde.

Already there is a buzz about this years Festival - the sixth - that wasn't there this early in previous years. On my recent trip to London several people mentioned it to me which bodes well.
The concert previewed here is a truly mouth watering combination. Those who recently saw Jason Yarde with the VOTNJO at Darlington will know what to expect. For those that didn't, such as myself, I can't wait. Directed and conducted by John Warren who supplies much of their repertoire the band contains a lot of the north-east's big hitters such as Lewis Watson, Paul Edis, Andy Champion et al. Add Jason Yarde and it is a recipe for musical success of the very highest calibre.
Jason Yarde, you may remember, played a major role in the Thelonious Monk Town Hall Project presented at the Sage last year - or was it the year before? Whatever, it was a night to rememember and not least because of Jason's alto solos.
Voice of the North Jazz Orchestra with Jason Yarde. Sat Mar. 27 Hall Two. 6:00 pm. £7.
Tickets for all concerts from The Sage Box Office, or by telephone 0191 4434661, or online
PS: There's a Festival preview in the March edition of The Crack.
