Graeme Wilson Quartet : Album Launch  -  Fri Oct 05, 2018  |  09:00 pm
Admission £ 8.00 ( £ 6.00 concessions)
Since Jazz North East presented their first gig at the Central Bar in Gateshead back in 2012, the Graeme Wilson Quartet have won praise across the UK for their “inspired rhythms” and “joyous soloing” (The Jazz Mann), and were deservedly selected as one of Jazz North's 'Northern Line' ambassador artists. The band now return to Tyneside to launch a brand new album of works inspired by Wilson’s return to his native Scotland; expect rhythmic ambushes, vibrant tonal landscapes and quicksilver melodies that follow you home.

A saxophonist and flautist at home in settings from Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra to the big band grooves of Voice of the North, Graeme’s new writing engages those diverse influences to extend the band’s instrumental range and capitalise on one of the country’s most exhilarating rhythm teams - Paul Edis on keyboards, Andy Champion on acoustic and electric bass, and Adam Sinclair on drums.

The quartet's previous recorded offerings, the EP 'Pleasureland' and 2016’s full length album 'Sure Will Hold A Boat', were both widely acclaimed. The new. as yet unnamed album, seems certain to win them even more admirers.

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