After our successful launch the Jazz Co op in Newcastle welcome some of the brightest jazz stars to Tyneside in November including US saxophone giant Benn Clatworthy and the UK's finest jazz drummer Clark Tracey both coming to the Globe and, at Sage Gateshead, South African pianist Abdullah Ibrahim.
First visit by Clark Tracey Quintet to North East
Clark Tracey's latest band - the very youthful Quintet formed last year - is playing in the North East for the first time on 1 November at the Globe. This gig is expected to be one of the highlights of our opening season and we advise people to buy tickets in advance (£15 + £1.75 fee) from www.skiddle.com/e/12254835/
We're thrilled to be hosting the most northerly gig in the tour of the Benn Clatworthy UK/US Quartet on Thursday 20 November at 8pm.
The international quartet is Benn Clatworthy (saxophones), Cecilia Coleman (piano), Simon Thorpe (bass), Matt Home (drums).
Benn’s distinctive, muscular saxophone and flute feature in his unique arrangements of standards from Cole Porter to Marvin Gaye and John Coltrane
Plus - see the humble high priest of international jazz for £10
As some of you will know, we have a very good working relationship with Sage Gateshead. They have asked us to promote a fantastic special offer to Jazz.Coop members and supporters – the chance to buy tickets for South African jazz pianist Abdullah Ibrahim at Sage Gateshead on Wednesday 19 November for just £10 (instead of £32.50 or £24.50).
Every week we put on local bands, jam sessions and education courses at the Globe. Visit the What's On page of our website to see more.
