Preview - Friday night @ The Sage.

Friday night will be the final night, for Sector 7, of a UK tour that began at the Scarborough Jazz Festival at the end of September. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend and review that concert which was quite something. Now, 75 days on, it should be perfection plus a few Christmas favourites t add a bit of seasonal cheer.. If you like vocal groups with a difference this is the gig for you - in fact any group that includes Sarah Ellen Hughes and Emma Smith will do for me!
If you like singers with a difference then co-star Ian Shaw definitely fills the bill! Singer, stand-up or pianist he ticks all three boxes although on Friday he'll vacate the piano stool for one of this country's outstanding jazz piano men - Barry Green.
This promises to be an outstanding double header.
Lance.
