Bebop Spoken There

Alan Barnes: "Normally you can cobble a set together with five guys on the back of an envelope over the first pint and it's just fine. Livestreaming isn't like that." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Alan Barnes/Greg Abate Quintet @ Corner House, Newcastle July 12.

Alan Barnes (alto); Greg Abate (tenor); Stu Collingwood (piano); Mick Shoulder (bass); Adam Sinclair (drums)
When we discovered the US sax player Greg Abate last July we just knew we had to put him together with the UK star Alan Barnes. They are a perfect fit and guaranteed to provide North East lovers of mainstream jazz with a great night's entertainment. They were so keen to renew an acquaintance they made some years ago that both agreed to fit in this one-off Northern appearance in the middle of a hectic festival season in the south. Don't miss the chance to hear them.
Backing them are two thirds of the Paul Edis Trio - Paul himself will be at one of Alan's stop-offs, the Swanage Festival, with ACV. He's replaced by one of the North East's most experienced keyboard players.
Capacity at the Corner House is limited so we recommend you to buy your tickets early and avoid disappointment : Alan Barnes has a tendency to fill venues, particularly in the company of such an illustrious front line partner. Tickets are on sale now at J.G.Windows in the Central Arcade, Newcastle.
CORNER HOUSE HOTEL
Heaton Road, Newcastle NE6 5RP
Tickets £12.00 Full Price; £10.00 Concessions; £5.00 Students
