Jazawaki – Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle 15th March 1985

I saw Jazawaki twice during my year and half back in the North East between finishing University and moving to London to start a job (two weeks after this gig) They were, as I recall, and all girl jazz group and we’d seen them at the Gulbenkian Studio which was on the Newcastle University campus and enjoyed them so when we saw a gig advertised at the art gallery it seemed like a fun idea. I seem to recall the band were set up at one end of a gallery in front of a load of oil paintings!

I searched for info about the band but couldn’t  to find anything. I was sure at one point there was a video on YouTube but it seemed to have disappeared! Then I realised they were called Jazawaki and not Jazowaki so here is a video of the band!
