Jazz composer, pianist and professor Bruno Heinen brings his new project, The W, to Gosforth Civic Theatre on Thursday 28th April. The artist, who has released eight albums under his own name, is signed to Ubuntu label and has worked with the best and brightest on the scene, joins forces with Heidi Vogel (Cinematic Orchestra) on wordless vocals, Andrea Di Biase (Kenny Wheeler) on double bass and Gene Calderazzo (Pharaoh Sanders) on drums to complete the quartet.

The band, who are set to release their Live at Kings Palace EP as well as a full length follow up album, perform compositions with a story to tell and written with melody in mind. Bruno rarely gigs in the region so this show is a great chance to see him and the band in the intimate setting of the Gosforth Civic Theatre.

Support comes from powerful Tyneside bassist John Pope and mercurial virtuoso violinist John Garner, both internationally renowned improvisers, who 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.

Tickets are £10 and available via the GCT website.
