Splinter @ The Bridge This Sunday October 13.

There's a treat in store for those who want to hear great sax playing at the Bridge, Newcastle, on Sunday night..
I refer to the Rachael Cohen Quartet. Rachael re-located in London from Birmingham and created quite a few waves with her lyrical sax playing and her original compositions. The tour is aimed at promoting the band's debut CD which is, in theory, launched at King's Place tonight. However, Tyler McDiarmid's mixing/mastering studio in New York was broken into and the masters went along with the equipment! He's rushing to get it re-mixed and mastered but hasn't been able to do it in time for the tour.
Rachael has promised to post a copy out to anyone who makes an advance purchase as soon as they become available.
On guitar Tom Ford replaces  Phil Robson who it seems had to be elsewhere
Calum Gourlay, yet another jazz jock, is also well known both north and south of the border whilst Tommy Bashford on drums is one of Birmingham's finest.
This is going to be an evening to remember...
Lance.
