Sue Richardson ‘ Too Cool.’

The story of Chesney 'Chet' Baker, American trumpeter and vocalist, is a kind of reverse
of the Dorian Grey tale.

For this joint Jazz Cafe / Jazz North East / 'Women Makes Music' gig, Sue Richardson - trumpet, flugelhorn and vocals - works with a hand- picked North East group to recreate Baker's music, adding some original tunes of her own, and stringing the whole thing together
with a spoken narrative developed with the help of actress Sylvia Sims.
Sue Richardson (Trumpet/Flugelhorn/Vocals/Narration); Sue Ferris (Baritone Sax);
Paul Edis (Pno); Andy Champion (Double bass); Russ Morgan (Drums)

 Saturday 25th June 9.00pm –
Pete Tanton / John Pope Duo
– Free

John (double bass) and Pete (trumpet and flugelhorn) will be taking the 60s vibe of
The Riviera Quartet (Jazz Cafe 26th February), paring it down even further -
apres beach in San Tropez - and throwing some latin standards and ballads into the mix.
There might even be a vocal or two. Zut alors!



The Cafe has a revised license that permits draught drinks on the Bar and access for young people up to 11pm when accompanied by a responsible adult.

More Live Music at the Cafe

After a major refit the Jazz Cafe on Pink Lane is open as
a Cafe Bar with a programme of classic discs and live music.

Newcastle Arts Centre is committed to maintaining a creative stage for live music and small scale events.

A regular Live Music Programme is funded by Newcastle Arts Centre Trust an independant charity for the arts.
