Preview: Swing Manouche - Cherry Tree Wednesday July 29.

Next Wednesday (July 29) sees the first appearance at the highly rated restaurant by Mick Shoulder's new band Swing Manouche which, translated, means Gypsy Jazz. Still roughly based in the Hot Club format that made Djangologie, arguably, the most popular small jazz group in the area this latest venture allows Mick to swap double bass for guitar and bring in Paul Edis on clarinet. Don't look surprised, apart from piano, Paul has also been known to play alto, flute and drums - he probably sings and plays the ukulele as well! 
Completing the line-up is Giles Strong on guitar and Neil Harland double bass.
This looks to be a must for those who like good food and good jazz.
Cherry Tree Restaurant, 9 Osborne Rd., Jesmond, Newcastle NE2 2AE. Tel. 0191 2399924.

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.
