Chris Hodgkin's International Quartet to play Zeffirellis

Last year I listened to a recording by New York-based Korean pianist - Jinjoo Yoo and I was knocked out. When I heard that she was touring the UK as part of the Chris Hodgkin's International Quartet (Chris Hodgkins, trumpet/flugel; Jinjoo Yoo, piano; Wayne Wilkinson, guitar and Alison Raynor, bass) I was excited. My euphoria was shortlived, Newcastle wasn't on the menu.
Tonight they are at Scarborough Jazz Club whilst on Saturday, May 25, they play Zeffirellis in Ambleside - so near and yet so far.

If you can make it to Zeff's - then make it!
