STEVE SALKIND / CORMAC LOANE QUARTET •    18th February     •

Steve Salkind and Cormac Loane


Cormac Loane learnt his trade as a jazz musician as a schoolboy in the North-East in the 70’s, often gigging alongside bass player Gordon Sumner, who later changed his name to Sting! Cormac progressed to the National Youth Jazz Orchestra before pursuing a career in music education which included setting up the Birmingham Schools’ Jazz Ensemble. Under Cormac’s direction, this band accompanied leading British jazz musicians including John Dankworth, Humphrey Lyttelton and Georgie Fame. Cormac continues to combine a part-time teaching career with his original passion for small group jazz playing.

 

Cormac has played at our club with Andy Hamilton & The Blue Notes, and with singer Shaine Dorsey. This week he brings his own Quartet to the Silvershine Jazz Club at short notice, so please do everything you can to spread the word, or, in the words of our very own Vic Evans “Tell your fiends and tell your enemies too!”
 

Cormac has booked Steve Salkind, another saxophonist with a great reputation in the West Midlands region to join him. I believe this will be a Silvershine first for Steve, so that will be something to look forward to, not least because Cormac has requested that we give Steve Salkind equal billing!

 

The full band is:

 

  • Cormac Loane, saxophone
     
  • Steve Salkind, saxophone
     
  • Andy Peate, keyboard
     
  • Trevor Lines, double bass
     
  • Maurice Colby, drums

 

p.s. The Sting connection would appear to still be very much alive and in this photo on a Geordie Jazz blog it would appear that sting is taking a photo of Cormac:

Surfing the internet I came across this wonderful photograph ov Vic Evans, the Blue Notes vocalist. It's a truly wonderful shot that truly captures the Vic we know and love, and looks more like a photo-realist drawing than a photograph - A work of art!

The photographer, Paul Hassell, emailed us the photograph, kindly giving us permission to upload it to our website. You can see more of Paul’s work on his site at http://www.paulhassell.co.uk
