Way Out West Down South

Our chums in the capital, LondonJazz, have drawn my attention to a venue, The Orange Tree, (not to be confused with the Cherry Tree in Jesmond of which more later) in Richmond, Surrey. This Wednesday night jazzerie (my own word!) featuring various jazz musicians living in and around West London and includes some very big names indeed.
On their website is a promotional video featuring some of the names including snippets of Tim Whitehead, Julian Siegal, Anita Wardell and our old buddy Vasilis Xenopoulos.

Looks and sounds good.
However, closer to home, tonight (Monday Dec. 28) our own 'jazzerie' the Cherry Tree Restaurant on Osborne Rd., Jesmond, where Vasy played in one of our "Gigs of the Year", features the Nick Pride Trio with vocals by Lauren Shepherd. That's Nick on guitar, Ian Paterson bass, Oz Cassidy drums and the delectable Lauren the icing on this particular Christmas cake.
Mouth-watering -- just like the menu.
Lance.
