Ben Gilbert returns, for one day only
Saturday 7 December, doors open 7.30pm
New jazz piano trio, led by returning star
Ben Gilbert is fondly remembered by North East jazzers as the talented young pianist in Extreme Measures and The Blofeld Experiment in the first decade of this century. He also ran a jazz course at the Sage and pioneered the monthly workshops that are the direct inspiration for the Play Jazz! workshops run by Jazz.Coop.
He left for London in 2009 and recently moved to Leeds, where he has formed a new trio that is making its Tyneside debut tonight.
In the afternoon, Ben will be the guest tutor for the Play Jazz! workshop at the Sage (2-6pm). Just like old times!
Ben Gilbert, piano

John Arnesen, drums
They will be playing an exciting mixture of the bands original material and some of their favourite works from other composers.
Doors open 7.30pm music starts at 8pm
Admission £6 on the door (£3 for students)
