Bebop Spoken There

Alan Barnes: "Normally you can cobble a set together with five guys on the back of an envelope over the first pint and it's just fine. Livestreaming isn't like that." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Preview: Joe McPhee Trio

(JNE Press release)
Sunday 2nd February 8.00pm (doors 7.30pm)
The Bridge Hotel - Newcastle
£10 / £8 Concessions

JOE MCPHEE TRIO
Joe McPhee (Reeds and Brass) / John Pope (Bass) / Paul Hession (Drums)

Multi-instrumentalist Joe McPhee is one of free jazz’s legends, a key participant in the musical revolution that swept out from New York in the 1970s. Now aged 80, he continues to tour worldwide, playing with undiminished fire and imagination, and displaying an insatiable appetite for throwing himself into new situations.

A great example of that came at the 2018 Newcastle Festival of Jazz & Improvised Music, when he played a memorable concert alongside bassist John Pope and drummer Paul Hession. It was a brand new trio, with no opportunity for rehearsal, but there was instantaneous chemistry, with Joe switching between tenor sax and trumpet, and John and Paul in perfect synch with his every move. The results were so good that all three agreed they’d like to do it again.

So when we heard that Joe had been booked for a gig in Edinburgh, Jazz North East immediately suggested reconvening the trio for a Newcastle appearance, and he jumped at the idea. And now it’s happening - three generations of free improvisers, led by a jazz giant, in the up close and personal space of the Bridge Hotel. It doesn’t get better than this.
