Message From Mike Durham

Hi: just a reminder that the last jazz event of the season is on Saturday 18th June at 8.00pm, featuring the superb Lancastrian reedman John Hallam, backed by the Roly Veitch Quartet.
John plays lovely swinging clarinet, tenor and baritone sax and has a great liking for the classic 1930s repertoire of Gershwin, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael, Harry Warren, Jerome Kern, Rogers & Hammerstein and other great songsmiths of that vanished era. The backing trio of piano, bass, guitar and drums is made up of three of the region's best mainstream musicians, and the combination promises a very high-class and enjoyable evening. Tickets are £10 on the door or from 0191 285 6130
Trinity Jazz starts again after the Summer break on September 17th with a welcome return visit from trumpeter Rico Tomasso: if you don't have a copy of the September 2011-June 2012 brochure, pick one up on Saturday after the concert.
By the way, there will be twelve hours of free traditional jazz on offer at the Jazz Stage of the Mouth of the Tyne Festival (July 9th & 10th) from 12 noon to 6.00pm each day - Front Street, Tynemouth. Check line-up and band playing times at the Mouth of the Tyne website.
Best wishes for a great Summer!
Mike.
