Preview: Jazz Jamaica @ Sage Gateshead - Friday!

Gary Crosby's musicianship, energy and dogged determination over more than three decades have contributed to the emergence of a Black British jazz scene which we now accept as part of the furniture. Imagine today's landscape without the presence of the many musicians who've come through the Jazz Warriors-Tomorrow's Warriors-Jazz Jamaica hothouse set-up, it would be a poorer environment for everyone - musicians and audience alike. 

Tomorrow (Friday 18) at Sage Gateshead there is a rare opportunity to hear Jazz Jamaica in concert. A socially distanced Sage One audience will be treated to a one set performance (approximately 60-70 mins) featuring a host of familiar names...Mark Kavuma, Denys Baptiste, Eddie HickCherise Adams-Burnett.

The concert will focus on the output of Trojan Records and some of the many charts in Jazz Jamaica's pad (there is a lot of material to draw upon, from 1991to the present day!). Please book online at: www.sagegateshead.com. For those unable to attend in person there is a streaming option. Live or virtual, Jazz Jamaica is an unmissable occasion! Russell
