Tonight - Sunderland v Newcastle!

Tonight sees the start of the weekend's Great North Big Band Festival at the Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St. Peter's, Charles St., Sunderland.
Tonight it's BBC Big Band altoist - Paul Jones - and Musicians Unlimited tenorist - Mick Donnelly doing a Quintet and a Big Band set.
Tomorrow afternoon is the Youth and Open Big Band Competition with the winning bands playing again in the evening.
Sunday afternoon is a Jazz Workshop followed by the Schools Big Band Jazz Competition.
Full details in RH column.
However, just as Newcastle and Sunderland football teams are in opposition on Sunday, tonight, Friday March 2, Newcastle has some jazz opposition to the Sunderland gig.
I refer to the Paul Edis Sextet at the Lit and Phil.where they launch their new CD There Will Be Time  This is a cracking disc and the opportunity to hear it live (and buy) should be well worth the effort.
Plus afterwards - in the equivalent of extra time - you can hop over to the Jazz Café and catch the Safe Sextet! 
So Sunderland or Newcastle? The choice is yours.
Lance.
