๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ TOM WAITS FOR NO MAN
Lindsay Hannon (Voc), Alan Law (Pn)

Vocalist and composer Lindsay Hannon (โ€œA voice soulful, brooding & unselfconscious in its longingโ€ – Jazz Journal) has chosen and re-arranged a selection of songs from the legendary Tom Waits decades spanning back catalogue.
From the tender nostalgia of ‘Martha’, the gospel infused ‘Picture in a frame’ and the variously, dark, comedic and lewd content of such numbers as ‘Pasties and a G-string’ , ‘Christmas card from a hooker in Minneapolis’ ; this may be an opportunity to reacquaint yourself with this stellar artist, or perhaps discover for the first time, a few of the reasons that maintain his reputation as songwriter of international acclaim.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝย  BEN GILBERT TRIO
Ben Gilbert (Pn), Jose Canhaย  (Bs)ย  Anna Chandler (Sax)

Pianist Ben Gilbert will be familiar to the Newcastle audience from his time with local jazz ensembles The Blofeld Experiment and David Carnegie’s Extreme Measures.

Now based in Leeds after a long stint in London he is now developing repertoire with his new trio. Along with Portuguese bassist Jose Canha he has been exploring the beauty of melodies from across the world – from South America to Scandinavia – discovering many new favourites and revisiting some old ones too. The wonderful warm sound and virtuosic improvising of saxophonist Anna Chandler was the obvious choice when searching for the third member of the ensemble. Exciting original compositions and some truly stunning pieces make up a set that will take the audience on a journey across the globe.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ EMMA RAWICZ
with: Dean Stockdale (Pn),ย  Andy Champion (Bs), Dave McKeague (Dr)

Emma Rawicz is an award winning young saxophonist and composer, already making waves on the UK music scene. She has been described as ‘a force to be reckoned with’ (Jazzwise) and ‘a fast rising star’ (London Jazz News). At the age of 19 she has already recorded her eagerly awaited debut album featuring Ant Law, made up entirely of her original compositions, due to be released in May 2022. She has also created a name for herself both as a bandleader and a sideman. A new arrival on the scene, she has already made an impact, regularly playing at major London jazz venues with a wide range of established musicians. Emma is a recipient of the 2021 Drake Yolanda Award.

Emma’s influences range from modern jazz and fusion to folk and soul, key figures in her musical development including Chris Potter, Ari Hoenig, Kenny Jarrett, Joe Henderson, Chick Corea and more. ย 

Growing up in rural North Devon, Emma didn’t discover jazz until the age of 15, and didn’t pick up a tenor saxophone until a year later, but had spent her childhood otherwise immersed in largely folk and classical music.

Emma is a natural performer. Her music has a unique sound, fusing all her many influences, and her compositions range from lilting Afro Cuban inspired grooves to hard hitting modern jazz and funk numbers.
