Joy Askew by Roly

Just been looking at her website - I think it must be the same girl Russell mentioned earlier. I remember her singing "Willow Weep for Me" with Dave & Friends of Jazz - she certainly had charisma.I see in her biog she makes a wee mention of Buddy Rich. Good old Buddy - loved by all who had the good fortune to have any dealings with him.

I remember Joy well, not just for the sax reeds she bought in Windows Music Shop but for her performance at the then University Theatre in a Willy Russell play called "John Paul George Ringo & Bert".
As you may have guessed it was Beatles based and Joy played piano and sang various Beatles numbers. She was accompanied by Geoff Sharkey on guitar and bass guitar and Louis La Rose on drums. This was circa 1976 - I still have the program.
Can anyone else recall this show I wonder. It was, I seem to recollect, an excellent production.

I was the drummer for this part of the tour at the University Theater, Barras Bridge?? I also still have the program. I was playing the part of Ringo and had to sing a couple of songs. It was an 'interesting' gig ans the place was packed out every night.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
