Bebop Spoken There

Anat Cohen: "With the tenor, it's so iconic with jazz. With the clarinet, I can improvise, but it doesn't have to be called jazz." - (DownBeat July 2019)

Trish Cowes Nonet Preview

Paul Bream's Jazz Alert gave the following details of the forthcoming concert:
TRISH CLOWES TANGENT NONET
Trish Clowes (saxophones); Gwylim Simcock (piano); Chris Montague (guitar); Calum Gourlay (bass); James Maddren (drums); Thomas Gould & Thea Spiers (violins); Adam Robinson (viola); Louise McMonagle (cello)Friday 5th October | 7.45pm
The Sage | Gateshead
Tickets £13.50 from 0191 443 4661

"No sooner had I plugged this in last week’s ‘Alert’ than Guardian critic John Fordham backed me up, firstly on Friday with an enthusiastic review of Trish Clowes’ new album, and then on Saturday with a glowing preview of this gig (“Clowes’ coolly imaginative sax-playing grows steadily more assured”). Then via Twitter I learned that she has just been named as a Radio 3 ‘New Generation Artist’: this scheme is designed to nurture young musical talent, and Trish is only the fourth jazz musician to feature in the nearly 100 nominees since it was launched in 1999. 
I’m not actually claiming credit for this sudden cascade of plaudits for Trish, but I think it does reinforce my endorsement of her Sage gig."  

Paul Bream.

As a further endorsement of the above, would-be concertgoers who are wavering might like to hear these two delightful tracks from Trish Clowes latest CD.
