Josh Lane @ King’s Hall Newcastle Uni. November 6

Josh Lane (trumpet & flugelhorn), Ella El-Salahi (vocals), Jamie Lawson (piano), Tim Farrow (double bass) & Joe Cromey-Hawke (drums)
(Review by Russell)
Final year student Josh Lane (brass) shared the late afternoon student performances’ hour with an array of spectacularly good fellow students. An operatic soprano wowed the large turn-out with some Puccini, superb flautist Anne-Marie Rosa played a solo piece by Ibert and folk artists led by Callum Younger (bodhran) improvised a set of jigs. The latter clan could easily sit-in at any of the many of the jazz jam sessions around town.
Lane chose to play the music of Michael League’s Brooklyn hipsters Snarky Puppy. Lane checked-out the Puppies at Sage Gateshead earlier this year and, clearly impressed, chose to work on Shofukan. Opening on flugel (the wonderful Ella El-Salahi standing alongside him), Lane hit a groove. Pianist Jamie Lawson jabbed and stabbed, bassist Tim Farrow in tandem with drummer Joe Cromey-Hawke hammered it out on the raised stage. El-Salahi swooped down, around and in between Lane’s lines (flugel then trumpet). Josh Lane is in his final year of studies. At the end of the academic year take the opportunity  to hear him when he gives his degree finals’ recital.
