Don’t forget to book the babysitter!

(Russell)
Friday night at the Traveller’s Rest, Cockerton, Darlington, then, Sunday at the Black Bull, Blaydon. See you there! You have booked the babysitter, haven’t you? Honestly! Do it now before you forget. See you there! Yes, it’s the return of Vasilis Xenopoulos!
Vas…who? you say.
He’s one of the great swinging tenor players.  
Is he dead? you venture.
No, Vasilis is very much alive and well. You must hear him.
But I’ve never heard of him
LOUD BANGING (head against wall).
Listen, name the great tenor players down the years.
LOW RUMBLING SOUND (brain engaging), sometime later…
Yes, that’s an ‘all time greats’ list. Add Vasilis’ name to it.
You can’t be serious?
Book the babysitter, see you there, then you’ll believe it.
Vasilis Xenopoulos with Paul Edis, Andy Champion and Russ Morgan appearing at
Traveller’s Rest, Cockerton, Darlington FRIDAY 21 OCTOBER
Black Bull, Blaydon SUNDAY 23 OCTOBER  
You’ve booked the babysitter? Hurrah!

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.
