Jazz North East Newsletter.

(By Dave Clark).No less than three concerts this week, presenting Jazz North East wearing two of its most varied hats. Also a special price deal - see the very end of this newsletter. Two of the concerts have appeared in a previous newsletter and the third is a newcomer. It seems fair to begin with the newcomer even though the other two pre-date it :

8.00PM SUNDAY 13TH MAY
FUSIONHEAD
Roz Sluman (sax & vocals); Nick Rimmer (keyboards); Alex Green (bass & vocals); Kenny Reed (drums)
Carlisle-based Fusionhead pride themselves on tight arrangements and creative improvisations over groove-based jazz in a variety of styles-funk, soul, blues and rock. Their material includes home-grown originals and classics from Miles to Sting - music to let your hair down to, if you're still fortunate enough to have any, and get funky.
Leader Roz Sluman has played with legends of the soul-jazz genre such as James Brown reedsman Pee Wee Ellis so she knows her way round that genre. But her influences - she names Paul Desmond, Cannonball Adderley, David Sanborn and the Brecker Brothers- are clear evidence that her style also embodies both cool melodic playing and hard bop.
The gritty vocals of bassist Alex Green are a second strong blues element to the band while Nick Rimmer, keyboards, and Kenny Reed,drums, respectively provide textural variation and subtle colouration.
This gig is in an upstairs room inaccessible to wheelchair-users.
BRIDGE HOTEL, CASTLE GARTH, NEWCASTLE NE1 1RQ
Admission £5.00 - only at the door.
------
L'Entente Chordiale - Wednesday May 9. 7:30pm.
SPELK
Chris Sharkey (guitar); Andy Champion(bass); Adrian Tilbrook (drums)
+ TWEEDLE DEE
Robin Fincker (tenor sax & clarinet); Alex Bonney (trumpet); Fidel Fourneyron (trombone & tuba); Julian Desprez (guitar); Kit Downes (organ); Dave Kane(bass); Yann Joussein (drums)
The first of two nights of an Anglo French Festival (L'Entente Chordiale) which can be described as genuinely unique. Cheltenham Jazz Festival beat us to it by commissioning a performance from Tweedle Dee, the septet of leading young players from Paris and London who are at the core of our festival. But that was to be that. Tweedle Dee didn't envisage a second performance until Jazz North East persuaded them to contribute to our growing relationship with our Gallic cousins and extend their life by a day. Our festival's uniqueness doesn't stop with Tweedle Dee though. We added to them one French trio and a solo musician (Day Two) and, in an effort to forge links and create possible future collaborations, added two Tyneside bands consisting of some of the region's most adventurous musicians.
The festival kicks off tonight with a double bill of freeform jazz-rockers Spelk, who played a ferociously energetic set at the recent Gateshead International Jazz Festival, and Tweedle Dee, whose starry line-up includes keyboards maestro Kit Downes (whose own quintet played a great gig at the Lit & Phil a few weeks ago.)
----- 
L'Entente Chordiale Thursday May 10. 7:30pm.
ACV
Graeme Wilson(saxes); Mark Williams (guitar); Paul Edis (piano); Andy Champion (bass); Adrian Tilbrook (drums)
