Sweet Thursday

There's a lot happening tomorrow in and beyond the region.
Thursday night at Gateshead Old Town Hall is a JNE presentation of the Julian Siegel Quartet. This is a line-up of first call musicians with Siegel on tenor, Gene Calderazzo on drums, Oli Hayhurst on bass and Liam Noble on piano.
Down the road apiece at The Sage is the Christian Wallumrod Ensemble, whilst over the bridge - at Hoochie Coochie - local favourites Legohead are on stage.
Looking further afield, to Leeds, the Tony Faulkner Yorkshire Jazz Orchestra makes its debut at Seven Arts (31 Harrogate Rd., Chapel Allerton, Leeds LS7 3PD.) It's an impressive line-up of some of Yorkshire's finest.
Rod Mason (alt/sop/fl); Dave Hogan (alt/clt/fl); Ben Lowman (ten/sop); Katie Hawcutt (ten/clt);Tony Harper (bar/bs clt/); Dale Gibson, Mark Chandler, Greg Nicholas, Ian Chalk and Kim Macari (tpts); Lee Hallam, Brian Archer, Chris Burge (tmb); Tony Smith (bs tmb); Derrick Harris (gtr); Graham Hearn (pno); Garry Jackson (bs);Peter Fairclough (dms); Louise Gibbs (voice); Tony Faulkner (director).
Rod Mason, of course, is well known in our locale for his work with VOTNJO and Louise Gibbs appears at Durham Jazz Festival on November 11.
