Ernest Dawkins & the Unknowns - Sat Feb 11, 2017 | 09:00 pm
This year he has taken up a post as visiting scholar at Newcastle University's International Centre for Music Studies, and has been working with a group of student improvisers, allowing them to apply the principles of the AACM to their own creative practice. This free concert at the Jazz Café will see Ernest Dawkins playing with a sextet drawn from this group, in the first public performance to emerge from the relationship.
Recognising Jazz North East's own enthusiasm for imaginative approaches to jazz, ICMuS and the Jazz Café invited us to join them as co-promoters for the concert . . . and we didn't need asking twice!
