Party Time at the Globe...

Jeremy Platt

Party Time – 3 great gigs before Xmas at the Jazz Co-op

There’s three great gigs at the Globe newcastle in the run-up to Christmas – all different, all quality and all demonstrating the diversity of jazz.

On Saturday 13 December there’s Jeremy Platt Jazz Soul Moment - a popular trio launching their second album.

Jeremy Platt - Piano, Microkorg and Vocals
Frank Felix – Bass
John Boulton – Drums
"Funky-Jazz Piano. At times intense, at other times joyous, but always groovin'!" - Dennis Rollins

‘It’s all here – totally upfront. All the listener has to do is enjoy the delicacy of the ballads and the foot tapping grooves on the funkier pieces.’ Lance Liddle, Bebop Spoken Here

On Friday 19 December hard bop sextet Alter Ego bring their combination of tight arrangements and free flowing solos to the Globe recreating the style of 1960s jazz with a 21st century edge.

Sunday 21 December is our unofficial Christmas party, with Pjanto Mates and the Diminished 7, a one-off gig by the top session musicians who are playing at the Theatre Royal (can you guess the name of the panto?). Damian Cook – sax, Simon Lambert – piano, Jo Britton – bass, Ollie Boorman – drums, will be in party mood and may be joined by others – who knows?

For those who haven't been to a jazz gig at the Globe yet then come to one (or more) in the next two weeks and support the new jazz venue. And to those of you who have been, please come again and bring a friend.

Remember that members can bring a guest for free to most gigs (or with a £5 discount off more expensive tickets).
