Friday 19th December

Don Forbes Quartet
8.00pm
£5.00 (£3.00 before 7.30pm)

Once resident at the old Jazz Café, Don’s hard boppers return to the fray with some new faces and some new originals by the band’s leader. Also in the mix are tunes from Newcastle’s great EmCee Five and from American trumpet great Freddie Hubbard, plus some jazz standards.

Don Forbes trumpet; Alan Law piano; Paul Grainger bass; Tim Johnson drums
____________________________________________

Saturday 20th December

Mark Williams / Paul Susans Duo
9.00pm
Admission free

Mark and Paul promise a mixture of original compositions drawn from the repertoire of The Mark Williams Trio, plus other contemporary tunes by artists including Charlie Haden, Pat Metheny and Steve Swallow. As well as the odd standard thrown in for good measure. For anyone unfamiliar with Messrs Susans and Williams, they are unquestionably two of Tyneside’s top string players and their duo will be a real treat.

 

Mark Williams electric guitar; Paul Susans electric bass
