3.40pm – 4.20pm – John Garner and John Pope
John Garner (Violin) / John Pope (Double Bass)
Powerful Tyneside bassist John Pope and mercurial virtuoso violinist John Garner return with their celebratory, no holds barred music-making. Both internationally renowned improvisers, Garner and Pope will once again pay tribute to ‘The New Thing’, the wave of mid-to late-twentieth century artists who shook the world to its core, driving political and social change in their wake. The duo have immersed themselves in the singular repertoire of composers including Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman, Jimmy Garrison, Jeanne Lee, Mary Lou Williams, and Misha Mengelberg, channeling these titanic spirits through the lens of their contemporary experience in myriad musical traditions. Spontaneous, transitory and ecstatic, the pair will plunge headlong into a thrilling and, at times, terrifying world of sounds and colours.
4.50pm – 5.30pm – Dilutey Juice
Thomas Dixon (Saxophone) / Billy Bradshaw (Trumpet) / Lewis Wilkinson (Sousaphone) / Ben Fitzgerald (Drums)
Dilutey Juice are a brass party band created in the summer of 2020 as a response to the covid pandemic and a need to take positive vibes and dance music to the public. They saw an incredible response to their energetic street performances and despite their extremely short time playing together, have since been booked for a vast array of parties and festivals, supporting the likes of TOO MANY ZOOZ and Nubiyan Twist to name a few. Rising to critical acclaim since their inception, Dilutey Juice take inspiration from a plethora of influences, from the fast hypnotic rhythms of Afro-beat, to the intense euphoria of 90’s dance music – they’re a party band that are truly unlike any other in the north east and will stop at nothing to give their audience a mind-blowing performance.
This concert is presented by Newcastle Festival of Jazz and Improvised Music in association with Jazz.Coop at The Globe and comes with support from Arts Council England.
