A Message From Mike Durham

Dear jazz-lover: next Friday is Bonfire Night of course, but if you fancy some musical fireworks instead of the pyrotechnic variety, get along to the Saville Exchange to see British Jazz Award trumpeter Rico Tomasso with the Swing City Trio (8.00pm, £11/concessions £10). Rico plays wonderful, Armstrong-inspired trumpet and will be swinging mightily on jazz standards and ballads from the twenties and thirties, more than ably backed by Steve Andrews on tenor sax and clarinet, Roly Veitch on guitar and a few vocals and Roy Cansdale on bass. A sensation on their last North East appearance at the Trinity Centre (a sell-out), Rico and the trio are a must-see and I can't recommend them too highly for a supremely entertaining evening - guaranteed to go with a bang!
