Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 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.
