Newcastle based Alter Ego is a jazz sextet made up of talented, like-minded musicians, all of whom have experience performing in a variety of musical styles. Over their 14 year existence, they have gradually moved away from the standard jazz repertoire originally performed by the likes of Miles Davis, Art Blakey, Bobby Watson and Hank Mobley, and have introduced new, original material, of a more contemporary style. 

Their line-up of three front-line horns and rhythm section allows for tightly structured arrangements, with harmonically rich ensemble passages, exciting rhythmic interplay and inventive improvised solos. They have entertained jazz audiences at Gateshead, Durham and Darlington Jazz Festivals, Opus4 Darlington, Blaydon Jazz Club, the Fox Hexham, J's & B's Fenham, the Globe in Newcastle, and more.

''Rooted in the hard bop idiom, Alter Ego is a no-nonsense band of seasoned musicians who know the routine.''
