Bebop Spoken There

Ferg Ireland: “I was very ignorant about early jazz - it's bizarrely skirted over in jazz education." - (Jazzwise, September 2021)

Gateshead International Jazz Festival 2012's Ayanna returns to The Sage Gateshead Tuesday November 6, 2012

MOBO-award nominee, Ayanna, returns to The Sage Gateshead following her captivating performance at Gateshead International Jazz Festival 2012 supporting Roberto Fonseca. This time Ayanna will be supporting Kairos 4Tet in an intimate gig on Tuesday 6th November as part of their extensive 2012 UK tour.
Hoping to follow in the footsteps of Karios 4Tet and the likes of Adele and Boyz II Men, Ayanna is hoping to collect the MOBO Award for ‘Best Jazz Act’ 2012 on 3rd November.
Ayanna is a multi-talented composer, vocalist, cellist and pianist, and a rising star on the international jazz scene. She has worked alongside UK artists Courtney Pine, Nitin Sawhney, Jason Yarde, Robert Mitchell, Nick Mulvey and Gwyneth Herbert, and a host of international artists.
Winners of the MOBO Award for ‘Best Jazz Act’ 2011, Kairos  4Tet are a four-piece band who bring a modern sound to jazz.  Their 2010 debut, ‘Kairos Moment’, positioned them as one of the UK’s premier jazz acts bridging the elusive gap between crossover appeal and serious jazz credentials.  Armed with a 4* reviews and number two in MOJO Magazine’s 2011 ‘Jazz Albums of the Year’, the quartet will perform new material along with some old favourites.
Kairos 4Tet plus support Ayanna will be performing at The Sage Gateshead on Tuesday 6th November 2012 in Northern Rock Foundation Hall at 7.45pm. Tickets are £13.50 and can be booked either by calling 0191 443 4661, online at www.thesagegateshead.org or in person from The Sage Gateshead’s Ticket Office.
Presented with Jazz North East.
