Brand, Beresford & Edwards  -  Tue Oct 11, 2016  |  08:00 pm
Admission £ 10.00 ( £ 8.00 concessions)
Trombonist Sarah Gail Brand featured in our 2015 'Women Make Music' series in a duo with Mark Sanders, and she impressed us so much that we decided to invite her back, this time in the company of Steve Beresford on keyboards and electronics, and - another Jazz North East favourite - bassist John Edwards.

All three are amongst Europe's finest and best established free improvisers, yet they only came performed together for the first time in 2014, at what was intended to be a one-off event at London's Café Oto. But the music sounded so good that they decided that - given the opportunity - they'd like to do it again. And now we're providing that opportunity.

The combination of trombone and bass creates intense, muscular textures, with Steve Beresford constantly feeding rhythmic and melodic hints into the music, interspersing moments of calm with volcanic aural eruptions. This is dynamic, edgy, and contantly exciting improvised music at its best, and we're proud to be bringing it to Newcastle for its first airing outside London.

Tickets are available from the Jazz Café (0191 222 9882), Reflex CD (0191 260 3246) or online from
