FESTIVAL Gateshead International Jazz Festival returns with a wideranging programme that will delight everyone from the most devoted of fans to first time listeners. This year’s festival is also part of Sage Gateshead’s 10th birthday celebrations and, as with the other events marking our anniversary year, you’re guaranteed great music from around the world. Leading American stars David Sanborn, Joshua Redman, and John Scofield with his British compadre Jon Cleary represent the transatlantic core of jazz, from fiery electric fusion, acoustic pyrotechnics and New Orleans roots. This is given added spice by The Cookers, a stellar line-up of soloists whose combined age brings 250 years experience of the classic hard bop tradition to the heart of the weekend. The riches of jazz in the UK are celebrated in a complete performance of Stan Tracey’s 1965 landmark suite inspired by Dylan Thomas’ Under Milk Wood, alongside sets from two other British movers and shakers, who have both

made a real international impact - Gwilym Simcock, with Sage Gateshead’s resident orchestra Royal Northern Sinfonia, and saxophonist Andy Sheppard, playing duets with Italian pianist Rita Marcotulli. The British scene has also been remarkable for re-defining the art of the jazz big band. The festival welcomes the re-invigorated Loose Tubes, the iconic band that exploded onto the scene in the 1980s, and Beats and Pieces – very definitely a big band for the 21st. century. The European view of jazz is often unpredictable and quirky - Håkon Kornstad’s fascinating Tenor Battle brings the apparently colliding worlds of jazz and grand opera into fascinating fusion, whilst Dutch trio Tin Men and The Telephone explore a world of changing technology…. have you ever been asked to switch your phones ON during a concert? The art of the unpredictable is further explored by Sloth Racket and Musson-KjaerMarshall’s concert of free improv and sonic exploration, part of Jazz North East’s Women Make Music series.

To prove that jazz has its place alongside the grooves of the dancefloor and the passion of soul, Acid Jazz pioneers the James Taylor Quartet share a double bill with the soaring, gospeltinged voice of Ruby Turner. And to keep you dancing, Davina and The Vagabonds make a triumphant return to NE8, after their showstopping performance at Sage Gateshead’s SummerTyne Americana Festival 2014. To complete the picture, you can find out just why the jazz scene across the North is in such rude health by checking the programme of events featuring local and regional bands throughout the weekend, many of them free. There’s a range of workshops, seminars and talks alongside the packed weekend of live performances. Ros Rigby Performance Programme Director, Sage Gateshead John Cumming Director, Serious

The festival is produced in association with London-based music producers Serious.

FRIDAY 10 APRIL Double Bill: David Sanborn Band plus John Scofield and Jon Cleary Friday 10 April, Hall One, 7.30pm David Sanborn’s soulful saxophone has been one of the signature sounds in contemporary jazz for some four decades, in a career that’s travelled from James Brown and David Bowie to Jaco Pastorius and Gil Evans, as well as a string of landmark recordings of his own. Sanborn returns to the fiercely grooving electric fusion that defined his blistering live performances through the 80s and 90s with a brand new album. The duo of jazz guitar hero John Scofield and vocalist/pianist Jon Cleary (Brit-born, but steeped in the deep traditions of New Orleans) takes its cue from Scofield’s Piety Street recording from 2009; a heady mix of blues and gospel flavours inspired by the deep South. Tickets: £23.50 Pre-concert talk at 6.30pm. Kevin LeGendre in conversation with David Sanborn (free to ticket holders)

on the concourse, 6.30pm

New York Brass Band

A powerhouse from the mean streets of York via New Orleans.

Stan Tracey’s Under Milk Wood Friday 10 April, Hall Two, 7.30pm 2015 is the 50th anniversary of one of the most famous recordings in British jazz history - Stan Tracey’s Under Milk Wood which has been reissued continually since its 1965 release. The haunting, evocative sound of saxophonist Bobby Wellins played an essential role in the original recording - he will be joined by Andrew Cleyndert and Clark Tracey, both members of Stan’s groups for the last 35 years, and Stan’s personal choice of pianist, Steve Melling. The narrator of Dylan Thomas’ seminal work is Stan’s grandson Ben Tracey, Stan’s preferred voice. This is a unique opportunity both to revisit a jazz landmark and to celebrate a much missed figure in British jazz, who himself performed at several past Gateshead International Jazz Festivals. The quartet will also perform their own set. Tickets: £16.50 Pre-concert talk at 6.30pm. John Cumming in conversation with Bobby Wellins and Clark Tracey (free to ticket holders)

Jarrod Lawson Friday 10 April, Hall Two, 10.30pm A vocal talent who is taking Europe by storm with his powerful harmony-laden take on Soul Jazz, Jarrod Lawson draws on the inspiration of Stevie Wonder and Donny Hathaway, while sounding like nobody but himself. His trademark sound is steeped in soul, jazz, gospel, latin and blues, with an emotionally charged voice to die for. His concert at London’s Jazz Café sold out within days, so make sure you don’t miss this chance to see him for the first time in Gateshead. “There is literally not enough ink in the world to be spilled proclaiming how amazing Jarrod Lawson’s self-titled debut album is...” “Over a series of deep danceable grooves blended with smart jazz-fusion arrangements Lawson works a breezy vocal magic all of his own... He is going to be a very big star indeed” Sunday Express (4*) Tickets: £13.50

Jazz vs Opera – a Tenor Battle: Håkon Kornstad Friday 10 April, THE JAZZ LOUNGE Northern Rock Foundation Hall, 10.45pm Håkon Kornstad already had an international reputation as a jazz saxophonist before discovering opera. His brand new project combines both these talents and has created a sensation in his native Norway. This is, quite literally, a tenor battle, with Kornstad singing Puccini, Verdi and Neapolitan songs and accompanying himself on the saxophone. Caruso meets Coltrane! Tickets: £12 Pre-concert talk at 9.45pm. Kevin LeGendre in conversation with Håkon Kornstad (free to ticket holders)

on the concourse, 10.15pm & 11.15pm

James Birkett and Bradley johnson

From Eddie Lang through to Django Reinhardt, to Pat Metheny and beyond. This guitar duo present a musical journey from early jazz and blues, through swing and bebop, to contemporary jazz.

SATURDAY 11 APRIL Gwilym Simcock and Royal Northern Sinfonia Saturday 11 April, Hall Two, 2pm The last decade has seen Gwilym Simcock develop from an outrageously talented young pianist into one of the most gifted instrumentalists and composers on the European scene. He moves effortlessly between jazz and classical music, acclaimed as ‘engaging, exciting, often unexpected, melodically enthralling, complex yet hugely accessible’, and above all ‘wonderfully optimistic’. For this concert he performs solo; with a trio featuring his regular collaborator Russian bass player Yuri Goloubev, and Martin France on drums. The trio performs alongside Royal Northern Sinfonia, conducted by Clark Rundell, performing his exciting suite Move! originally commissioned by City of London Sinfonia and recorded on his Instrumation album. “Gwilym’s an original. A creative genius” Chick Corea “I feel confident that Simcock already deserves to occupy the inner circle of the great contemporary pianists along with Mehldau, Jarrett, and Rubalcaba” David Kane, Cadence U.S.A. Tickets: £14.50

Tin Men and The Telephone Family Show Saturday 11 April, THE JAZZ LOUNGE Northern Rock Foundation Hall, 2.30pm Inventive and often downright hilarious, this Dutch threesome bring the mobile into the music, with a specially designed smartphone app that lets the audience members in on the action and become part of how the music develops as the show progresses. This hour-long family show presents everyday human experiences in unexpectedly humorous ways. Audience members of all ages are encouraged to bring along their smartphones and tablets so they can play a role in making this performance unique. Suitable for ages 6+ and their families.

on the concourse, 6.30pm


Newcastle’s own jazz-funk supremos with a ‘fire in the belly’ groove featuring the inimitable Chris Jelly on vibes.

Double Bill: Ruby Turner and James Taylor Quartet Saturday 11 April, Hall One, 7.30pm For a quarter of a century, the James Taylor Quartet have set the standard for the coolest sounds in funky Acid Jazz. On dozens of albums and at their legendary gigs, they’ve quietly become a byword for distinguished British creativity, with James Taylor’s funky Hammond sound as their trademark. “James Taylor is the best Hammond player this side of the Atlantic” Craig Charles, BBC Radio 6 “Taylor’s organ sound first sears the ears and then goes straight to the feet“ BBC Music Magazine Ruby Turner is well known as one of the UK’s favourite soul, gospel and R&B singers. To date, she has released 17 albums plus the BBC’s Live From Glastonbury, as well as appearing on releases by Brian Ferry, UB40, Steve Winwood and Mick Jagger. She is also one of the main vocalists in Jools Holland’s Rhythm & Blues Orchestra and features on many of his album tracks. Her most recent studio album All That I Am was released in the summer of 2014. “Soul, gospel and r&b: Ruby Turner is truly the genuine article. Blessed with a voice that can breathe life and meaning into any song, whether it be a passionate ballad or a fast groove” The Guardian Tickets: £21.50

Joshua Redman Trio Saturday 11 April, Hall Two, 8pm Joshua Redman is one of the most acclaimed and charismatic artists to have emerged in jazz today. A saxophonist of immense range and sophistication, steeped in the jazz tradition, but very much an artist of today. Citing influences from Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley to Prince and Earth, Wind and Fire - not to mention his father, saxophonist Dewey Redman - Joshua Redman has toured with Jack DeJohnette, Pat Metheny and Charlie Haden before leading a string of his own groups, and exploring chamber music and electronica. His touring band is a free-wheeling trio that features bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Greg Hutchison, whose telepathic interplay, born out of years of playing together, is sure to produce musical fireworks. Tickets: £16.50

Double Bill: Zoe Gilby and Alice Zawadzki Saturday 11 April, The JAZZ LOUNGE Northern Rock Foundation Hall, 7.45pm

Zoe Gilby with Paul Edis, Andy Champion and Adrian Tilbrook - Pannonica The North East’s own Zoe Gilby has a growing reputation for singing a mix of standards, her own compositions and arrangements of more contemporary material. This new project features some of the North East’s most talented instrumentalists and draws on the work of one of her musical heroines, American singer Carmen McRae, who recorded memorable interpretations of Thelonious Monk’s music in the 1980s, including some of his best known tunes such as Blue Monk and Pannonica (written in honour of the Jazz Baroness, the muse of bebop).

Alice Zawadzki with Alex Roth, Tom McCredie, Peter Lee and Jon Scott Vocalist, violinist, songwriter/composer, Alice Zawadzki is making waves with music of rare originality, drawing together influences from her early exposure to New Orleans soul and gospel (including a stint as backing singer to Lillian Boutte) alongside classical training and an exploration of world and improvised music. Her debut album China Lane travels from medieval Sephardic songs to indie rock, “all propelled in a voice of velvet suppleness and gutsy emotional power” The Arts Desk “Uncategorisable, beautiful – a real force to be reckoned with” Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2 Presented in association with Jazz North East’s Women Make Music series. Tickets: £12

on the concourse, 10.15pm & 11.15pm

Svarc Hanley Longhawn

A refreshing take on the guitar/organ/drums trio, this Leeds-based band have a sound which ranges from ethereal moods to electrifying grooves.

The Necks Saturday 11 April, Hall Two, 10.30pm The music of The Necks is a fascinating law unto itself, and invariably described as simply unique. Each performance is a singular event, entirely improvised and working with the acoustics of the room, featuring lengthy pieces which build in a mesmerising fashion, taking the audience on a fascinatingly unpredictable sonic journey.

Beats and Pieces Saturday 11 April, the jazz lounge Northern Rock Foundation Hall 10.45pm Manchester’s Beats and Pieces have redefined the big band for a new generation. Finding common ground between Duke Ellington, Loose Tubes and Radiohead, this is a band that is strong on texture and groove, capable of rocking out as well as delivering lush brass and reed writing. With a raft of international awards, and a second album about to hit the street, 2015 is set to mark yet another milestone in the evolution of a remarkable story. “They couple gale-force collective energy and confidence to startlingly original material” The Guardian “Gloriously full-blooded” Jazzwise Tickets: £12

The cult Australian trio are recognised internationally for a signature approach to performance. In recent years, alongside their regular international touring, The Necks have been invited by Nick Cave to appear at All Tomorrow’s Parties and have collaborated with Evan Parker, Austrian electro-acoustic trio Radian, and with Brian Eno in Pure Scenius at Sydney Opera House and Brighton Festival. “Absolutely three musicians can sound like eighteen is a mystery... extraordinary magical sounds emerged from the ensemble... the way The Necks do this with acoustic instruments is nothing short of miraculous” Financial Times Tickets: £13.50

SUNDAY 12 APRIL The Cookers Billy Harper, Eddie Henderson, Jaleel Shaw, David Weiss, George Cables, Cecil McBee and Billy Hart. Sunday 12 April, Hall Two, 2pm “This really is the best working band anywhere at the moment” is the judgement of Jazzwise and who can argue against a line-up that includes some of the scene’s most distinguished bearers of the hard bop message. With over 250 years of collective experience, this is a band of bandleaders who have also brought their exceptional solo talents to over a thousand recordings, contributing to the music of Herbie Hancock, Max Roach, Art Blakey and a host of others. After seven years together, The Cookers have just released their fourth album, Time and Time Again, a rollercoaster ride that evokes memories of the jazz of the 50s and 60s, while continuing to provide proof that this is music with lasting energy and life-affirming spirit.

Saturday 11 April, The Barbour Room, 5.30-6.30pm Living Legacy: Kevin LeGendre and The Cookers explore hard bop. See Join In page for more details.

“A dream team of forward-leaning hard bop” New York Times Tickets: £13.50 Pre-concert talk at 1pm. Kevin LeGendre in conversation with The Cookers (free to ticket holders)

Tin Men and The Telephone Sunday 12 April, the jazz lounge, Northern Rock Foundation Hall, 2.30pm Tin Men and The Telephone cause a sensation wherever they play. With their new album taking the form of an interactive app, everything becomes music, from ringtones to sat nav voices. Leader Tony Roe uses his piano keys to send tweets and Facebook messages. He and his bass-and-drums compadres mix video, sound and text into a multimedia performance roaming through jazz, hip-hop and classical music. Keep your smartphone turned on and join in! “Rarely have humour and exciting music been combined so successfully” Vrij Nederland Tickets: £10 The app is available to download at Tin Men and The Telephone are supported by DFDS Seaways

jambone and beats and pieces

Sage Gateshead’s own youth jazz ensemble join with members of one of the UK’s favourite contemporary big bands, Beats and Pieces to showcase some joint material developed earlier in 2015.

Double Bill: Loose Tubes plus Andy Sheppard and Rita Marcotulli Sunday 12 April, Hall One, 7.30pm Thirty years on and Loose Tubes’ anarchic and uniquely exhilarating music is still reverberating through the UK music scene. “They could sound like a rock band, a circus band, a Saturday night South African townships outfit, Duke Ellington – often at the same time” The Guardian. The 21 piece line-up reflects a brilliant generation of musicians, from maverick keyboardist Django Bates to saxophonist Mark Lockheart (Polar Bear), Iain Ballamy (Food) to irrepressible trombonist and charismatic MC Ashley Slater (Freak Power, Kitten and the Hip) and trumpeter Chris Batchelor (Big Air). Playing some of their greatest hits, the band will also present new music after a collective decision that they “definitely didn’t want to be their own tribute band” resulted in a BBC Radio 3 commission for new works. Their return was triumphant – fresh, forward-looking and as crazily inventive as ever.

On the Edge of a Perfect Moment is the title of the recording made by saxophonist/composer Andy Sheppard and the exceptional Italian pianist Rita Marcotulli. Their musical partnership personifies the art of the improvising duo, with delightfully witty musical exchanges. Rita has been an important presence in European jazz over the years, bringing a characteristically Mediterranean warmth and vigour to her music. Andy has played a significant role in Sage Gateshead’s ten year journey - performing several times since the opening weekend in December 2004. Andy Sheppard’s Five Sided Dream was developed for the fifth birthday, and Sage Gateshead now welcomes him back to open the final Hall One concert in this year’s festival. Tickets: £23.50 Pre-concert talk at 6.30pm. Kevin LeGendre in conversation with Django Bates, Chris Batchelor, Eddie Parker and Ashley Slater from Loose Tubes (free to ticket holders)

Double Bill: Sloth Racket and Musson-Kjaer-Marshall Sunday 12 April, THE JAZZ LOUNGE Northern Rock Foundation Hall, 7.45pm Sloth Racket is a new project from saxophonist Cath Roberts (Quadraceratops, Ripsaw Catfish), bringing together some of the most exciting improvising musicians on the UK scene. The group will play a new set of music by Roberts, using it as a jumping-off point for freely improvised group explorations. Rachel Musson (saxophone), Julie Kjaer (saxophone) and Hannah Marshall (cello) are firmly established in the London improvised music scene. As a trio they make improvising structures that may move through otherworldly, sonic landscapes, touching on contemporary chamber music, or playing with echoes of free jazz. Presented in association with Jazz North East’s Women Make Music series. Tickets: £12

Davina and The Vagabonds Sunday 12 April, Hall Two, 8pm The big hit of the 2014 SummerTyne Americana Festival, jazz & blues quintet Davina Sowers and The Vagabonds (from Dakota USA) have created a stir on the national blues scene with their high-energy live shows, sharp-dressed professionalism, and Sowers’ commanding stage presence. With influences like Fats Domino, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Aretha Franklin, Tom Waits and Amy Winehouse their shows are filled with New Orleans charm, Memphis soul swagger, dark theatrical moments that evoke Kurt Weill, and tender gospel passages. The group’s focused sound and emphasis on acoustic instruments is novel to both blues and jazz worlds, and sets the show closer to New Orleans than to Chicago. A great way to end the festival with dancing definitely encouraged! Tickets: £13.50

JOIN IN Take The Green Train Friday 10 April, The Barbour Room 11am-5pm A seminar on sustainability in music presented by the Europe Jazz Network and Julie’s Bicycle.
