Tonight's The Night

Big Band Open Rehearsal The Customs House Big Band's first open rehearsal of 2010 takes place on Tuesday evening (Feb 2) at the New Crown Hotel, South Shields. The format is as per previous years; first set trying out and perfecting new numbers, second set concert with vocals from the ever delightful Ruth Lambert. It's free and the down beat is at 8:00 pm. Unfortunately, from my point of view, it coincides with the prestigious JNE gig by the
Alyn Cosker Quartet at Corner House.
Those who heard Alyn Cosker on his last visit to the Corner House with the Ryan Quigley sextet will know that he is arguably Britain's number one drummer. In fact one well-known local drummer, himself no slouch behind the kit, described Cosker as the best he'd heard since Elvin Jones - praise indeed!
With New York saxist Seamus Blake, David Dunsmuir, guitar, and Michael Janisch, bass, this promises to be in the running for gig of the year. 8:00 pm. £8/£6/£3 (students).

The sax player with the Alyn Cosker group is actually Seamus Blake - the Mingus Big Band member.

I was at their Glasgow gig last night. They're good. They're very good. Go.

My Proof Reader told me on Sunday that he had a 48 hour hangover.
I believe him.
