Blaydon News.

Thurs 4th Oct - 8.30 start - adm. £5.00
Steve Andrews (sax/clt) and Graham Hardy (tpt/flgl) with The Blaydon Jazz Trio featuring Jeremy McMurray pno, Andy Champion bass and Adam Sinclair drums. Steve's great playing embodies the 30s/40s swing style tenor sax of Hawkins, Young, Webster, Berry - a master player of that idiom and a wonderful, distinctive clarinettist too. For this 'one off' collaboration he joins the ubiquitous Graham Hardy (tpt/flgl), a great local player, totally at home in all styles of jazz from Satchmo to Hubbard.

Thurs Nov 1st - 8.30 start - Adm. £5.00

Paul Edis Sextet 
Paul's acclaimed NE sextet playing superb arrangements of standards plus a few originals. The sextet is made up of Paul's fine trio plus trumpet/trombone/saxophone front line - Graham Hardy, Chris Hibbard & Graeme Wilson. All great young players.
Thurs Dec 6th - CHRISTMAS CONCERT - 8.15 start - adm. £6.00 (includes buffet - as is our custom, please bring some small food contribution) 
Frank Brooker + James Birkett Quartet
Frank tnr sax/clt, James gtr, Jeremy McMurray pno, Mick Shoulder bass and Adam Sinclair drums.
Once again we've booked Frank with James' Quartet after a lovely concert last year.
The November concert by the Ray Chester Big Band has been cancelled due to Ray's current state of health.
