CD Review/Gig Preview: Preston Glasgow Lowe - @ Globe Saturday April 30


David Preston (gtr); Kevin Glasgow (bs); Laurie Lowe (dms).
(Review by Lance).
We knew about these guys from Russell's review when they played a Splinter gig at the Bridge back in November 2013 (Read here on the band's website). Well, they're back in The Toon on Saturday at The Globe Jazz Bar for a Jazz Coop gig. It's International Jazz Day so you've no excuse not to be there.
However, if you can't wait until Saturday, I've got good news. There's a CD with your name on it! All you have to do is just contact Whirlwind Recordings, enclosing the appropriate amount, and the disc is yours. Better still, on Saturday night, grab the 22 bus from the Central Station and ride for one stop to The Globe where you can buy the CD, dig a great band and sup some real ale - plus you'll save on the postage.
The disc is exactly what you would expect from musicians of this calibre - apart from the moments when you stop and say 'Wow' they didn't oughta do that!' but you're glad that they did!
I think the 22 bus will be full of guitarists!

The review of the CD is, actually, the last paragraph! I was kind of killing two birds with one stone - i.e. gig and disc. Click on the Whirlwind link for more info on the recording - it's a cracker!

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.
