Bebop Spoken There

Faye McCalman: "For a while I would hear other artists and feel that I need to be like that person, have what they have; but then I realised that everyone has their own thing and what I connect with most is when I can tell an artist is just being themselves." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Off The Leash Take It To The Bridge and Elsewhere

Guitarist Doug Kennard sent me this info on his band which make their Take It To The Bridge debut at The Chilli, Chillingham Road, Heaton on Wednesday Feb 23 - Lance. Off the Leash Formed in summer 2010 from the nucleus of the local fusion band Different Worlds, Off The Leash is adding its own particular blend of modern jazz to the North East scene. Fusing influences like Herbie Hancock, Michael Brecker and Stanley Clark, this exciting five-piece comprises Paul Beck on keys, John Steele on sax, Doug Kennard on guitar, Stan Praszczalek on drums and Katy Trigger bringing in the bass. Combining emerging talent and experienced players, Off the Leash delivers a dynamic mix of original compositions and interpretations of classic pieces. Where next?
