Next Wednesday @ The Chilli - Chillingham Rd., Heaton, Newcastle.

Next Wednesday, July 31, we have the international regarded recorder virtuoso Alan Davis appearing with Take It To The Bridge but playing his first love, jazz clarinet!  He did that years ago while at university, but the baroque repertoire, especially that written for recorder took pride of place.
Currently teaching at Chetham's music school, he's in the northeast taking part in the annual NORVIS early music workshop held at Durham University over six days, and this is his fourth annual visit with us.  We are all looking forward to this. 
As for Take It To The Bridge, we've had some good sessions lately, with trumpeter Don Forbes, multi-reedsman Peter Hepplewhite, alto saxophonist Rachel, young bassist James, who's off to Trinity College London in the autumn, superb guitarist Bradley Johnston (heard recently in guitar duets with James Birkett), as well as other up-and-coming players, like young drummer Matthew, and of course usual suspects Barrie Ascroft on keys, virtuoso bassist Ray Truscott, a fine guitarist named Richard, turning up out of the blue last week, and others too numerous to mention.  So we still carry on, regardless.
