Preview: "Big Sid Catlett Reigns" @ King’s Hall. November 27

Today’s lunchtime concert at Newcastle University (1:10pm) introduces a new name to many – Dominic J Marshall. Baseball cap cool pianist Marshall plays the King’s Hall’s Steinway in the company of the ‘Two Sams’ – double bassist Sam Vicary and drummer Sam Gardener. All three have played at the Bridge Hotel, all three can play, to be sure. 
The one set performance (fifty minutes) is the first of two ‘freebie’ events this afternoon in the King’s Hall. Two hours later at four o’clock the weekly Student Performances gig presents a mix of classical, folk, jazz and anything else that catches the student ear. This afternoon’s potpourri includes a jazz trio playing three standards; pianist (and final year student) Jamie Lawson will work in the company of drummer Dan Egdell and trumpeter Ed Addo. And drummer Lewis West takes on Max Roach’s For Big Sid. Go, Lewis!

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.
