A first Tyneside appearance for Polish reedsman Mikolaj Trzaska, who is rapidly becoming a world star of free jazz. He works regularly with iconic European figures such as Peter Brötzmann and Johannes Bauer, and with leaders of the American free scene including Joe McPhee, Ken Vandermark and Steve Swell, being invited to participate in a ground breaking 'European Jazz Meets Chicago' festival in 2008.

Later that year he teamed up with drummer Mark Sanders, a regular performer for Jazz North East, and it's Mark who has arranged a London concert for Mikolaj, with bassist Olie Brice completing a trio. When we heard about this, we immediately enquired about the possibility of bringing the group to Tyneside, and it's a real treat to be able to present a musician who brings to his playing not just tremendous imagination, but also a sly sense of humour, as evidenced by the tune 'Donkey Caravan' on his MySpace site!


This is an 'On the Outside' concert, made possible by funding from Newcastle City Council and the Arts Council
