Bebop Spoken There

Gil Goldstein: "The first three days I was in Florida, I heard Jaco Pastorius play at a club in Fort Lauderdale, and then I heard Pat [Metheny] play in a class on jazz composition. My whole experience of the world changed in those three days." - (DownBeat, March 2020).

Tcha Limberger to play Sage Gateshead!

(Preview by Russell)
Multi instrumentalist Tcha Limberger is returning to Sage Gateshead. This Sunday, October 2, Limberger will be in Hall Two with his Budapest Gypsy Orchestra. Belgian born Tcha, of the Manouche tradition, will lead his seven piece band in a programme centred on the folk music traditions of Central Europe. On this current tour Limberger will be playing violin – he is also an accomplished guitarist – alongside fellow string instrumentalists Olah Norbert (viola, or the ‘brac’ bowed alternative), Ruzo Istvan on violin and Szegfu Karoly, double bass.

The Budapest Gypsy Orchestra’s concert performances have won acclaim from many quarters; the improvising element attracted praise from the respected Jazz Mann blog, Songlines and F Roots magazines similarly heaped superlatives upon Limberger’s hot outfit. The Sage Gateshead concert should have wide appeal. Jazz fans will appreciate   astonishing, virtuoso playing, a broader audience will perhaps draw parallels with the Bueno Vista Social Club phenomenon. Concert goers in Hall Two will marvel at Feher Istvan’s cimbalom. A cross-stringed instrument akin to a piano or dulcimer, Istvan can justifiably be described as a master musician. As a piece of furniture the cimbalom is a work of art!

Having released an album titled Django! and recorded with Lollo Meier there is much to tempt the jazz fan along to Tcha Limberger’s Budapest Gypsy Orchestra in Hall Two at Sage Gateshead on Sunday 2nd October. To book your seat call 0191 443 4661.  As a taster be sure to tune in to Radio 3’s In Tune programme at five o’clock today, Monday 26th, to hear Limberger playing live in the studio.
