Bebop Spoken There

Belá Fleck: "...he [Chick Corea] brought out the best in musicians. Not only would you get to play with him, but you'd get to play with the best version of yourself." - (DownBeat April 2021).

Sunday Jazz @ The Globe - Live Streams In December

(Press release)

The Globe is the Jazz Co-op's community-owned, multi-genre music venue in Newcastle, and its live music programme has extended throughout 2020 lockdowns thanks to  innovative live streams, three days a week, spanning folk, Americana, rock, blues, jazz and classical music.  The Sunday night Jazz sessions have been a particular success, and the December line up is the strongest yet, featuring  a string of award winning, up and coming, jazz musicians from across the UK. 

Fergus McCreadie, whose latest award is Best Instrumentalist at The Scottish Jazz awards 2020, brings his acclaimed trio to The Globe on December 6,  playing music from their eagerly awaited second album Cairn, due for release in January 2021 on Edition records.

This is followed on Sunday 13 by the Francis Tulip Quintet (pictured).  A recent graduate of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire jazz course, and recipient of the college jazz performance prize, Francis brings a stellar line up of Birmingham and London based musicians, in particular saxophonist Xhosa Cole, winner of Jazz FM 2020 Breakthrough Act of the Year and BBC Young Jazz Musician of The Year 2018.

And finally,  on December  20, the north east based singer Zoë Gilby,  Parliamentary Jazz Vocalist of the Year 2019, brings her  widely travelled quartet,  a fitting finale to  The Globe’s  year of top quality  gigs.  No wonder jazz blogger ‘Bebop Spoken Here’ said “Sunday Night @ The Globe, whether on line, or on chair, is fast becoming a byline for Jazz in Newcastle and, maybe tomorrow, the world!”   We’ll be back in January with more great gigs –live and live streamed  -  from The Globe.

To buy tickets for these live streamed performances, and for more information about The Globe and their eclectic music programme, visit the Globe website.
