Preview: Indigo Voices @ The Globe, This Coming Thursday

Another free event at the Globe for you lucky people!  On Thursday October 8 Indigo Voices perform their gig at 7.30pm, accompanied by Alan Law and Ron Pattinson on piano.  We are a group of singers who have attended/are attending Lindsay Hannon’s Blue Jazz Voices class at Sage Gateshead, and we are now branching out into more solo jazz singing.  We do songs individually, including swing, blues and bossa numbers.  So on Thursday, you’ll hear our versions of songs such as God Bless The Child; I’m Beginning To See The Light; Dindi; Take The A Train; Miss Otis Regrets; Misty. Our gigs come up every 2 months, and we had a full house for the last performance in August, which was rounded off neatly with a romping piano duet from our accompanists.  
We are: Jen Errington; Jenny Lingham; Minnie Fraser; Carrie McCullock; Elizabeth Eaton; Ann Alexander (accompanied by Alan Law) and also Barry Keatings (accompanied by Ron Pattinson).
Catch us before we become famous! (Only joking, but you never know)
Ann Alex

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.
