Preview: Sue Ferris Quintet @ Blaydon Jazz Club Sunday May 19


(Preview by Russell/archive photo))

On Sunday evening at the Black Bull, there is an all too rare appearance by one of the region's finest saxophonists and flautists. County Durham resident Sue Ferris is well known to jazz fans across the north of England and beyond as a versatile musician equally proficient in a small group setting or full-scale orchestral project. 

BSH readers familiar with the much missed Voice of the North Jazz Orchestra will recall Sue's blistering baritone sax solos in a band of stellar soloists, similarly the diminutive saxophonist invariably blows the proverbial roof off blowing baritone in Gerry Richardson's roaring Big Idea.
Sue has worked in many bands ranging from party time outfit Alive and Kicking to straight-ahead jazz groups to major concert hall performances as a member of composer Will Todd's ensemble. On Sunday at the Black Bull on Bridge Street Sue brings in her own quintet as guest of Blaydon Jazz Club in its 34th year. The line-up is of the A-list variety - Graham Hardy (trumpet), Paul Edis (piano), Neil Harland (bass) and drummer Rob Walker. On this gig - 7:30 start, £7 pay on the door - expect to hear Sue play tenor sax and flute. Highly recommended.
