Bebop Spoken There

Gretchen Parlato: "There's always an essence of the original [tune] that should be protected. I try to find that first - it's the thing that draws me to the material" - (DownBeat, March 2021)

Tonight at The Sage Gateshead - Not to be missed!

Since its creation 15 years ago, the Voice of the North Orchestra has grown into perhaps the most exciting big band anywhere in UK jazz. Whilst it has the drive, swing and precision of the great big bands of the past, it has been determinedly forward looking in developing its own original repertoire, much of it contributed by the internationally acclaimed composer and arranger John Warren, who has been the band’s Musical Director throughout its life.
This will be the last appearance of Voice of the North Orchestra with John Warren as musical director, so this is a real chance to celebrate the great musicianship and work from the last 15 years.
This performance is also a culmination of a collaboration project with Julian Siegel and will feature a specially commissioned suite plus other repertoire.
A JNE/Jazz Action presentation.
