The group draw much of their material from the rich catalogue of original compositions created by the likes of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, Hank Mobley and Miles Davis. The result is a stylistically varied programme including Up-tempo Swing, Hard Bop, Funk and Latin Jazz.

James Birkett - Bradley Johnston Jazz Guitar Duo
Once in a while a very young musician comes along who clearly has a very special talent. When it happens its a lovely thing to see them progress. Such a case is guitarist Bradley Johnston, a product of The Sage weekend school and now studying for his music degree. This wonderful young artist is paired with his mentor, Blaydon favourite, master guitarist James Birkett, and together they play a complete cross section of jazz guitar history - from Django to Metheny.
