Mette Rasmussen & Chris Corsano  -  Mon Jul 06, 2015  |  08:00 pm
Admission £ 10.00 ( £ 8.00 concessions)
For the last in our 'Women Make Music' series we are delighted to welcome back Danish saxophonist Mette Rasmussen, previously seen on Tyneside with the wonderful Trio Riot.

Since her first appearance here, her reputation has spread rapidly throughout Europe and further afield, leading to recent gigs with Los Angeles based drummer Corey Fogel and with the legendary Alan Silva, a veteran of work with Cecil Taylor, Albert Ayler and Sun Ra. But possibly her most exciting new collaboration is with drummer Chris Corsano, whose wide-ranging CV embraces work with artists as celebrated (and as diverse) as Jim O'Rourke, Evan Parker, and Bjork. This is an astonishingly empathetic pairing, covering the ground from subtle melodicism to tumultuous ferocity. Their Newcastle gig will take place in the library of the Lit & Phil, allowing the two musicians to exploit the unique acoustic opportunities of the space: we could hardly imagine a more dynamic way to bring our WMM series to a close.

Tickets for this gig are available from Reflex Records (0191 260 3246)
