Arun Ghosh Sextet featuring Zoe Rahman A South Asian Suite (Sage Gateshead, Friday Nov. 1)

Three years since his stunning début at Gateshead International Jazz Festival, Arun Ghosh brings his trademark IndoJazz sound back to the Sage Gateshead, featuring the MOBO Award winning pianist, Zoe Rahman.
The British-Asian clarinettist and composer has become a leading light on both the national and international jazz scene, captivating audiences and critics with his passionate and dynamic performance style, eloquent musical expression and a healthy dose of rock 'n' roll spirit.
On Friday (Nov. 1), the Arun Ghosh Sextet will be performing Ghosh's IndoJazz chamber work, the recently recorded A South Asian Suite. This mesmeric and enchanting six movement suite is inspired by the music, landscape and peoples of Nepal, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, as seen from the viewpoint of a British-Asian from a Northern town.
Pieces from Ghosh's acclaimed albums Northern Namaste and Primal Odyssey, plus euphoric live favourites comprise the second half.
Presented with Sage Gateshead, GemArts and Jazz North East

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
