Matthias Seuffert at Customs House and Trinity Jazz

Just a reminder that the brilliant young German sax and clarinet player, Matthias Seuffert, will be playing two concerts - in contrasting styles - on Tyneside next week. On Friday 16th he will be appearing at the Customs House, backed by Roly Veitch's Swing Quartet, in a programme of small band jazz from the 1930s and 1940s, featuring the great standards from the American Songbook. On Saturday 17th he will be at the Trinity Gosforth with a six-piece traditional lineup, playing music from the 1920s and early 1930s. Both concerts start at 8.00pm and end at 10.30pm. Box office for the Customs House is 0191 454 1234, and for the Trinity 0191 285 6130. Whatever your choice, don't miss out on this chance to hear one of today's most technically brilliant and very exciting younger jazzmen on one of his rare visits to the region!
Mike.
