Tonight @ Blaydon Looks Good.

It has been a long time - too long is the general consensus - since Dave Cliff and Geoff Simkins have played Blaydon Jazz Club. That long wait comes to an end tonight when guitarist Dave and altoist Geoff return to play a session with David Carnegie on drums and Neil Harland on bass.
North-east born Dave has long been a stalwart of the London scene capable of fitting in with bands of all genré from Alex Welsh to Peter Ind/Warne Marsh/Lee Konitz.
Geoff, reminiscent at times of early Art Pepper, can be both lyrical or fiery as the piece demands. In the company of local heroes Neil and David it promises to be another night to remember at Blaydon.
