Tonight - The Price is right!

(Preview by Russell)
Last call for the Jazz Café! Tonight on Pink Lane guitarist Nigel Price promises to set the place alight with his smokin’ Hammond trio. Last month’s Ushaw Durham Jazz Festival found Price in scintillating form with regular sidemen Ross Stanley, Hammond, and Matt Home, drums. Launching into their set at a blistering pace, Price and co. threatened to set the place alight. Midway through that first number, the fire alarm rang out. The organisers had no option but to literally pull the plugs.
The building evacuated, it transpired that all was well, a case of a false alarm. Price’s trio picked-up where they left off. How they did it was and is a marvel. Effectively mid-tune, you couldn’t see the joins. Amazing stuff! Price is in the middle of a proper tour. A little matter of fifty-six dates, none of this ‘five gigs in two months constitutes a tour’ business.
Tonight Price will once again have alongside him the Hammond virtuoso Ross Stanley, and, on this gig only, the brilliant Steve Brown, drums. Doors open at 7:45pm, tickets are £7.00 on the door. A short support set from the Early Bird Band starts at 8:15. Don’t miss these guys, they’re the business, they’re tomorrow’s jazz musicians and they’re playing at the Jazz Café tonight. They’ll be hanging around to catch Nigel Price, why not join them?
Call the Jazz Café on 0191 222 9882 to grab yourself a bargain £5.00. advance ticket!

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.
