Friday 21st November

Unfurl - 9.00pm - £5.00 (£3.00 before 8.30pm)

Unfurl’s music expands across continents, combining Indian ragas, flamenco and Arabic music with improvisation to create an original sound ranging from the dramatic to the sublime.

“…this is not world music or ethnic music; it is simply music – a fusion in the truest sense.

Enriching and full of life.” Chris Ackerley thesoundofnow.com

“Unfurl…has carved out an inviting, personal sound that draws the listener in with its searching melodies and tumbling rhythms” and “…transports the attentive listener to a place by turns delicate, mysterious and moving.”

Steve Mead, Artistic Director, Manchester Jazz Festival.

 Olivia Moore violin/band leader; Jim Faulkner electric guitar; Gavin Barras double bass; Adam Warne Egyptian percussion

TUESDAY 25TH NOVEMBER

JULIE SASSOON & TRAVELLERS QUARTET - 8PM - £10/£8 conc. ON DOOR

Tonight’s Schmazz concert is a good example of the internationalism of current European jazz and of Jazz North East’s Schmazz programme. The band Travelers consists of four young musicians, two from Italy and two from France who came together in 2008 to explore the edge between contemporary jazz and rock/pop music. Their debut CD, released in 2013, won awards in both Italy and France. They visit the Café as part of their first UK tour.

Playing an opening set is Berlin-based pianist, Julie Sassoon on a second visit to Newcastle. ‘All About Jazz’ described her recent solo album ‘Land of Shadows’ as “a wonderfully rich and beautiful record.”

Julie Sassoon solo piano || Antonin Tri-Hoang reeds; Francesco Diodaiti guitar; Matteo Bortone bass; Ariel Tessier drums
