Learn from the Sage Lulo Reinhardt

(Preview by Russell)
The name is Reinhardt, Lulo Reinhardt. The great-nephew of Django Reinhardt is coming to Gateshead! On Tuesday 30 September the gypsy jazz guitarist visits Sage Gateshead mid-way through an extensive British tour.
Born into the Reinhardt dynasty, from an early age Lulo had a guitar in his hands. At the age of twelve he toured with the Mike Reinhardt Sextet. Possessing an authentic gypsy jazz guitar technique, Lulo embraced other cultures including flamenco and Latin jazz sounds. Lulo introduced piano and drums to his music calling it Latin Swing. CD and DVD releases have followed at regular intervals, the latest, BAWO, is dedicated to his late father.
Lulo Reinhardt is an endorsee of Saga Musical Instruments’ Gitane Jazz Guitar. At Sage Gateshead there is a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn from a master practitioner of the art as Lulo leads an afternoon workshop. The evening concert features his five piece band – Daniel Waltinger (violin), Winfried Schuld (piano), Harald Becker (bass) and Uli Krämer-Ragusi (drums).
To book your place (and to secure a discounted workshop and concert ticket offer) contact Sage Gateshead’s box office – 0191 443 4661.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
