Jazz Co-operative & Jazz North East present Ellery Eskelin Trio

(I'm sure Paul won't mind me borrowing this from his Jazz Alert - Lance)
“Eskelin could get away with murder. That tone is all the alibi he’d need…incarnating the horn’s romantic tradition while inking fresh initials on its tattooed heart.” 
Jazziz Magazine'
(From Paul Bream’s Jazz Alert)
“I couldn't have put it better myself. For more than thirty years New York based Ellery Eskelin has been a leading figure the global improvised music scene, performing, recording and amassing a very personal and utterly distinctive body of work. And yet Ellery has always remained deeply committed to the traditions of jazz and American music, bridging any contradictions with ease. He's not tied to any particular style or idiom, but to an open process of creative development, delivering unadulterated, passionate music with no excuses and no apologies.

Throughout his career he has travelled widely, yet somehow has never previously found his way to Tyneside. Now he finally gets here, leading a wonderfully stimulating Anglo-American trio put together by the Orpheus Project that earlier this year teamed Canadian trumpeter Ingrid Jensen with our very own Andy Champion. This is the final date in a short UK tour, so the trio should by now be a really integrated unit. We've waited a long time for Ellery, and heaven knows when he'll be here again . . . so I urge everybody to get along to the Globe for what seems certain to be an unforgettable night of great jazz.”
Paul Bream.
Ellery Eskelin (sax); Chris Sharkey (guitar); Matthew Bourne (keyboards)

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.
