Lana Trio @ Jazz Café. Sept. 30

Previously, All About Jazz wrote -  "Lana Trio succeeds in harnessing its challenging, experimental flights, and the determined exploration of inventive new sounds and fresh forms of interplay into a cohesive, tough, loose, structure that surprisingly sounds engaging and accessible." 
And at the Jazz Café this Norwegian trio provided aspects of the ambient Sofa Jazz of many contemporary Scandinavian artists coupled with the ferocious all-out-attack of others  with much focus on exploring the timbre of their individual instruments whilst providing an overall enveloping soundscape.  Yes, it was totally engaging and quite accessible.  Well done to Jazz North East & Schmazz  for taking yet another chance on an untried, and previously unknown (on Tyneside), band. TIt undoubtedly adds to the international reputation of Jazz North East and Schmazz. that they are offered - and accept - this kind of coup.
