Lunchtime Jazz at the Lit and Phil – Spring 2017

Paul Edis has kindly sent me details of forthcoming lunchtime gigs at the Lit & Phil.
All Concerts are 1-2pm. Tickets are £5 on the door
27th January - Mark Williams and Joel Byrne-McCullough
Mark and Joel studied together on the BMus Jazz degree at Newcastle college in 2000.
At that point, they were regularly performing as a guitar duo around North East.
Joel has returned to the North East after living in Manchester, and so the duo has picked up where they left off many moons ago. Both are in high demand as session players, working all over the UK and beyond alongside some of the best in the business!

24th February Hand to Mouth
‘Hannon’s voice is soulful, brooding & unselfconscious in its longing…it wasn’t all melancholy; Hannon can swing with the best of them’ (Jazz Journal) 
‘Bradley Johnston could cut it with the best of them!’ (Russell Corbett, Bebop Spoken Here)
Both familiar figures on the North East Jazz scene, Lindsay Hannon (vocals) and Bradley Johnston (Guitar) celebrate the great guitar and vocal duos of Joe Pass with Ella Fitzgerald and Carmen McRae. 
31st March – Triptych - Edis/Susans/Walker
All three members of this group bring a diverse repertoire and extensive experience to create new interpretations of old standards alongside new compositions, often with a rhythmic twist involving metric modulations, irregular metres and longer forms compositions. Triptych are Paul Edis (piano/clarinet) Rob Walker (drums) and Paul Susans (bass).

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.
