Jazz weekend is upon us again. It’s that one weekend in the year when every langer on leeside suddenly remembers he “fucking loves the jazz, tis daycint, like!” So for those looking to click their approval, there’s plenty on offer. Brand New Heavies are bringing their brand of jazz, soul and R&B to the Savoy Theatre on Saturday. Herbie Hancock Band play alongside Jason Moran and the Bandwagon in the Everyman Palace Theatre also on Saturday.  The Savoy hosts Maceo Parker Band on Sunday.
