Message From Middlesbrough Town Hall and Crypt.

Stacey Kent & Her Musicians. Middlesbrough Town Hall. Thursday 6 October, 8:00pm. £16; Conc £14

Stacey Kent, a best-selling member of the Blue Note roster of recording artists, now boasts six best-selling albums, a string of awards, including the British Jazz Award, The BBC Jazz Award for 'Best Vocalist', and Album of the Year , as well as a fan base that enables her to sell-out concert halls around the world.
Stacey's last album, 'Breakfast On the Morning Train', went ‘platinum’ in France and ‘gold’ in Germany, and was also nominated for a 2009 Grammy Award. Spring 2010 saw the release of Stacey’s eagerly anticipated new album, ‘Raconte-Moi’, on Blue Note.
"She has charm to burn, a smile that could give you hope in February and sings like nobody's business" The Wall Street Journal
Matthew Halsall. Saturday 15 October, 8:00pm, £8.
Manchester based trumpeter Matthew Halsall is fast carving out a reputation as one of the UK’s brightest talents. A gifted trumpeter with a beautiful, expressive tone, his music draws on his love of the transcendental spiritual and modal jazz of Alice and John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders, as well as the glories of ‘60s British jazz, and has won him fans from Gilles Peterson to Mojo and BBC Music Magazine.
Halsall’s music is thoughtful, elegiac and explorative. But while imbued with a sense of history, the young trumpeter and DJ nevertheless brings a contemporary bounce to his beautiful music and his live shows are as likely to feature a Cinematic Orchestra or Soil and Pimp cover as his own thoughtful originals or the bands soulful explorations of the music of Alice and John Coltrane.
