Purseglove & Noble Make More European Music

At short notice Percy Purseglove and Liam Noble have stepped into the breach to play a set in the Northern Rock Foundation Hall at the Gateshead International Jazz Festival. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Airelle Besson Duo will not now be appearing. The duo of trumpeter/bassist Percy Purseglove and pianist Liam Noble will team up to play a set in a Europe Makes Music double bill with Malija on Sunday afternoon at 2:30pm.
Purseglove is in town to play his part in Phil Meadows’ Lifecycles concert on Saturday in Hall One with the Royal Northern Sinfonia and Jambone. Staying on for this duo concert is an unexpected bonus for Purseglove and the audience. Pianist Liam Noble is similarly involved with Lifecycles and by chance is one-third of Malija, the other half of Sunday’s double bill. Malija – Noble, Mark Lockheart (reeds) and Jasper Høiby (double bass) – recently released the acclaimed CD The Day I Had Everything on Edition Records.
Tickets are available from Sage Gateshead’s ticket office. Telephone: 0191 443 4661.

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.
