Preview: JazzMain @ The Globe - Jan 19

A not infrequent visitor from Edinburgh, Nick Gould never fails to make a favourable impression at Newcastle's Black Swan jam sessions with his swinging tenor saxophone playing. If the local gun slingers are in town it makes for an entertaining, good natured saxophone joust. Occasionally Gould brings his JazzMain quartet to Tyneside to play a gig and the next opportunity to hear the outfit is two weeks tomorrow (Sunday 19).

Four affable guys from north of the border, JazzMain cover the swinging standards to bop Firth of Forth waterfront. Of late Nick and the boys have been Diggin' Dexter (at last year's Edinburgh Fringe the quartet played a storming set of tunes associated with Dexter Gordon). Accomplished pianist Steve Grossart impresses every time and the bass and drums pairing of Iain Harkness and Kevin Dorrian is as dependable as any. 

Doors open at the Jazz Co-op's Railway Street premises at 7:30pm, admission £10 (£7 student), Sunday 19 January.
