Louis Durra Trio to play Eyemouth


(Press release)
Berlin-based Californian pianist Louis Durra takes his trio to Eyemouth Hippodrome, eight miles north of the England-Scotland border, on Saturday 26 November.
Durra, who scored an unexpected college radio hit in the U.S. with his 2012 release, The Best of All Possible Worlds, has gained a cult audience in the UK thanks to his appearances at the Edinburgh Fringe and his jazz interpretations of songs by a range of artists including Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, Radiohead, White Stripes, KT Tunstall, and electronica group Boards of Canada.
His Edinburgh Fringe debut in 2011 resulted in him winning a Herald Angel, one of the statuettes awarded by Glasgow-based newspaper The Herald for excellence in performance, and he has subsequently played at Celtic Connections in Glasgow and at Pizza Express in Dean Street, Soho.
The Eyemouth concert is one of a series of dates Durra is playing with Scottish musicians, drummer Doug Hough, from the Glasgow collective Elusive Tree, and bassist Euan Burton, who is known to jazz fans in the Bebop Spoken Here heartlands and beyond through appearances with his own quartet and New York players Ari Hoenig, Gilad Hekselman, Will Vinson, and Jonathan Kreisberg. 
They will also be appearing at The Jazz Bar, Edinburgh (Wednesday 23rd November), Blue Lamp, Aberdeen (Thursday 24th November) and Arlington Baths Club, Glasgow (Friday 25th November).

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.
