Bebop Spoken There

Ed Palermo: "[Frank] Zappa's humor was very rarely self-deprecating, and mine is almost always self-deprecating. The beauty of it is that no one gets hurt." - (DownBeat February, 2021)

Danny Jonokuchi with Strictly Smokin’ Big Band @ Flat Caps Coffee, Carliol Square, Newcastle-upon-Tyne

(Press release)

Friday 13th March | 8pm

Famed New York and LA band leader, trumpet player, vocalist and arranger, DANNY JONOKUCHI, visits the North East for a one-off gig with STRICTLY SMOKIN’ BIG BAND. We’ve featured Danny’s arrangements at SSBB for a few years now, and are very excited to hook up for this gig.

Danny Jonokuchi has been called a world class performer and the “sound of this era” (Nextbop).

This music swings from start to finish – Danny’s arrangements are fresh but hold true to the New York big band tradition – think Birdland, Village Vanguard and Blue Note.

We’ll be featuring Danny on trumpet and vocals, as well as our own Alice Grace and members of Strictly Smokin’.

Few artists are as diversely involved in their craft. You can hear his original compositions and arrangements in renowned jazz clubs, listen to albums he has arranged and produced, and see him perform on Broadway in the Tony-nominated musical Be More Chill.

Writing has always been Danny’s passion and his arrangements have been performed by an incredible cast of acclaimed artists including Lady Gaga, Grammy-nominated vocalist Nicole Zuraitis, Post Modern Jukebox singer Hannah Gill, The Duke Ellington Legacy, The Terell Stafford Quintet, Brian Newman, Charles Turner & Uptown Swing, Ulysses Owens Jr.’s New Century Big Band, The Birdland Big Band, The South Philly Big Band, Peter Bernstein, The Gordon Webster Band, and The Dick Oatts Sextet.

This is Danny’s only UK concert date.

TICKET OFFER: £8 tickets for those with a Mike Lovatt ticket – full details on our web site.
Tickets strictly limited due to capacity.

“The sound of this era” – NextBop.
“Big band sounds with some of the best musicians” – Broadway World.
“What a night” – Tony Bennett.
“A classic swing sound you wouldn’t think possible” – Syncopated Times.
