The Laura Jurd Septet

Black Swan Bar & Venue,
Newcastle Arts Centre. £10.00 & £8.00 conc.

Friday 30th January – 8.00pm
Dead Hedge Trio
£5.00 (£3.00 before 7.30pm).

New kids on the Liverpool block, Dead Hedge Trio have melded sounds from jazz, psychedelic rock and Afro-beat to create a sordid, fizzing, squeaking yet palatably groovy aesthetic. The improvised aspect to the performance provides a rough punky edge, while the musicianship and creativitity deliver a satisfying jazzy depth to fantastic song writing.

Their 2014 demo recordings gained them a slot at Manchester International Jazz Festival not to mention playing support to Roller Trio and curating a recent monthly residency at Liverpool’s Mello Mello Cafe collaborating with artists ranging from local burlesque dancers to bands such as Cinema Soloriens feat Marshall Allen of the Sun Ra Arkestra and Shatner’s Bassoon.

Mo Scott / Dean Stockdale Duo. Free Admission.

Tyneside’s first lady of the blues teams up with the keyboard wizard who’s popping up everywhere on the North East jazz scene for two sets of standards and some blues. Mo promises to feature songs by one of her favourites, Billie Holiday, as well as a healthy measure of work by the great George Gershwin.

Dean’s main influences – Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans and Kenny Barron – will not be the issue for him tonight as he demonstrates the skills as accompanist which he revealed on his recent duo gig with Ruth Lambert.

Mo Scott vocals; Dean Stockdale piano
