The next two gigs in the Jazz Bar at the Globe in Newcastle demonstrate the wide spectrum spanned by local jazz.
On Saturday 31 January we present Diachronicx, a duo of Gabriele Heller (vocals and electronics) and Steve Glendinning (guitar). Gabi is well known for her work with experimental theatre. She burst onto the Newcastle jazz scene in late 2011 with Nat King Cole style trio called Gabriele Mit Drei. Diachronicx is her latest project (again with jazz guitarist Steve Glendinning) that includes ‘original songs, jazz standards, blues, poems and more around the theme of the Great City’. Prepare to be amazed, intrigued and entertained.
On Saturday 7 February, one of the longest established bands in Tyneside jazz comes to the Globe. The Safe Sextet, led by post-bop trumpeter and arranger Don Forbes, used to play every Friday for nearly 20 years at Keith Crombie’s Jazz Cafe. Several members of the band helped to set up the Jazz Coop when Crombie died. We are delighted to welcome them to the Globe. They will be playing tunes composed by Stan Tracey, Mike Carr, Lee Morgan and McCoy Tyner together with some original tunes by Don Forbes.
