Paul Edis Trio at Matfen Parish Church

Paul Edis (keys); Mick Shoulder (bs); Adrian Sinclair (dms).
You've heard of "Food Miles" - the distance some of our goods travel up and down the country. Last night at was about Jazz Miles (Distance not Davis). We thought we would pop across to Matfen from Ashington , which ended up in a 50 mile round trip. Just shows the dedication of Mick Shoulder, the bass player for the night. He must have a 120 mile round trip from South Durham. Don't know how far Paul and drummer Adam Sinclair had to travel!

The band kicked off with My Funny Valentine followed by Bye Bye Blackbird and One Note Samba. (No Clarinet or Flute from Paul for the Bossa numbers like the other week at the Cherry Tree.) Emily, Days of Wine and Roses were followed by Big Lamp Blues, which was one of Paul's own compositions. I first heard this number  via the internet, prompting me to listen to them live. The second half included Paul's composition Taking the Dog Out and Dedicated to the Duck. Among others featured were Moonglow, Donna Lee and as an encore I've Got Rhythm.
Altogether a nice night out which included a glass of wine and some nibbles.  The local Matfen Parishioners got a fine introduction to live jazz from the North East's top trio. 
John and Alan
