Tonight @ The Cherry Tree - not to be missed!

Tonight at the Cherry Tree is rather special, but aren't they always? So perhaps I should say EXTRA SPECIAL!
By which I mean a return visit from top singer Alice Grace. Alice wowed the audience on her previous visit to the Cherry Tree and has also created waves at the Jazz Café. Her CV  includes stints at Ronnie Scott's as well as with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra. If you missed her last time don't get caught out again.
Once more Alice will be accompanied by the outstanding Peter Gilligan Trio (Peter on piano; Paul Grainger, bass and Russ Morgan drums). 
Lance.
Wednesday October 14 - Alice Grace w. Peter Gilligan Trio, Cherry Tree Restaurant, 9 Osborne Rd., Jesmond, Newcastle NE2 2AE.. 0191 2399924. 7:00pm. No cover charge.

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.
