Hoochie Coochie This Sunday (July 17)


Hoochie Coochie is the place to be this coming Sunday with Gerry Richardson's Big Idea once again filling in the popular late afternoon/early evening slot (5pm)
The band has a big following which isn't surprising given the pedigree of the players - all pivotal figures across the genres with Gerry's Hammond grooves as good as anybody's in the UK and beyond.
Add Rod Sinclair's guitar, Sue Ferris, Garry Linsley and Jamie Toms on saxes, Chris Hibbard on trombone, a couple of trumpets (maybe Mark Webb and Dave Hignett) and Paul Smith on drums, a mix of originals and covers and you'll soon realise that Gerry's Big Idea makes it a very Good Idea to hear them at Hoochie Coochie!
Lance.
Sunday, July 17, Gerry Richardson's Big Idea - Hoochie Coochie, 54 Pilgrim St., Newcastle NE1 6SF. 5pm. £5.

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.
