Not smiling re Smulyan tour.

Gary Smulyan - currently the world's number one baritone player - is touring with the Nigel Price Trio. Sadly the gigs don't seem to pass north of Peterborough.
Maybe next year.

PS: Was the gig offered further north?

Hi Lance.
I organised the tour.
I did my best to get more of a national spread but it was at relatively short notice and the clubs in Yorkshire book WAY ahead.
If I'd have managed to land something there then we could have used that as a springboard to head up to your neck of the woods.
Sorry it couldn't work this time round but hopefully next time something like this comes up we'll make it work.
All the best.

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.
