This Thursday at the Jazz Café - Gerry Richardson's Big Idea. Don't miss it!

Gerry Richardson's Big Idea play their first gig of 2016. This is a nine piece Hammond organ based band which plays an eclectic mix of Funk, Latin, African and straight ahead Swing, both originals and covers. They will also be premiering some new compositions and arrangements.
What makes Big Idea special is not just the quality of the tunes but also that they're interpreted by a group of the North's leading player's. Lyrical altoist Garry Linsley (like rock steady drumming legend Paul Smith a regular member of Gerry's trio) lines up alongside acclaimed saxophonists Sue Ferris and Stuart Johnson, while the brass section of Mark Webb, Dave Hignett and David Gray pack a punch worthy of Muhammed Ali.
Guitarist Rod Sinclair is a virtuoso at home in everything from classic jazz to R'n'B while the whole ensemble is driven relentlessly forward by the leader's dynamic work on the Hammond Organ.
When Gerry dreamed up Big Idea, it was a great idea - providing a potent and enthralling example of 'little big band' music at its very best.

They filled Hoochie Coochie last November and this is a smaller venue so either book in advance or pitch your tent in Pink Lane now!
Gerry Richardson's Big Idea - Jazz Café, 25 Pink Lane, Newcastle NE1 5DW. Thursday, March 17. 8pm. 0181 2229882. £6/£4 under 18's with an adult.
