Goodbye...Ginger

Sadly, Ginger - the coolest cat on our block for the past ten years - had to be put to sleep today.
Absolutely gutted.
RIP Dear Friend.
Lance.

  3. Lance,
    I've just read about Ginger after being on holiday. I'm so sorry to hear this, I know what it's like to lose a cat. But he must have heard a lot of jazz in your house, Cool Cat!

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.

Contact: lanceliddle@gmail.com I look forward to hearing from you.
