If You Like Good Music Then Tonight's Your Night.

Tonight is the night for those of us whose roots are firmly 'On The Inside'.
Down on the Quayside at North Shields, Zoe Gilby will be gasbooking it at the Quay Tap House (formerly Milazzo's) alongside Peter Gilligan and the Jazz Café Exiles.
-----
Some 30 odd miles down the coast at Redcar Jazz Club (Coatham Memorial Hall Redcar, TS10 1RH 01642 483263) Ruth Lambert will be giving her interpretations of the Songbook. Ruth will be in the exalted company of the Ray Dales' Quartet which means Ray on alto, Jeremy McMurray (pno), Tubby Ayton (bass) and Paul Smith (dms).
-----
Ruth is also at the Cherry Tree Restaurant, Jesmond tomorrow night with Jeremy on piano, John Pope (bs) and Adam Sinclair (dms).
-----
In town tonight at The Bridge Hotel Jim Birkett and Rod Sinclair are this weeks featured Splinter @ The Bridge artists. The guitar duo will explore the many aspects of jazz guitar from Eddie Lang onwards.
-----
A little further afield, at York's Early Music Centre, Claire Martin struts her stuff.
-----
Underpinning it all is the Jazz Café Jam Session which may be a bit short staffed on stage this afternoon although I'm sure that Lindsay Hannon will keep things swinging!

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.
