Three reasons to be cheerful...

Travelers + Julia Sassoon 

Paul Bream, from Jazz North East, writes about three reasons to be cheerful...

ONE: The Arts Council has awarded Jazz North East a grant designed to keep us going until July 2015. We are, of course, extremely grateful for this positive outcome.

TWO: The grant has been awarded specifically to support a diverse programme that includes ‘straightahead’ jazz, more contemporary approaches (with a strong emphasis on contemporary composition), and the free improvisation strand .

THREE: We are also being encouraged to develop the international links which in recent years have enabled us to bring an extraordinarily cosmopolitan cast of overseas musicians to Tyneside.

So, the financial security this grant has provided means that we’ve been able to confirm a tremendous programme for the comings months. We have musicians heading to Newcastle from all points of the globe.
