Preview: Tiptoe @ Gosforth Civic Theatre - Oct. 11

Alice Higgins vocals / Will Blackstone trumpet / Conall Mulvenna guitar / Roz MacDonald double bass. 
If you haven't got tickets for Caro Emerald at Sage Gateshead then look no further than Gosforth Civic Theatre on Thursday. It looks good.
Tiptoe, one of the latest round of Jazz Northern Line supported acts promise to be one of the more accessible bands on the rota if, going by their YouTube samples, is a fair assessment of what they're all about.
I'm sure it is. Great voice, melodic trumpet, a guitarist who hasn't overdosed on Metheny and a bass player who can Dance with Dolphins. 
The varied repertoire covers material from Ella F to Michael J as well as some original material of their own.
See you there.
Lance.
Tiptoe - Gosforth Civic Theatre, Regent Farm Road, Gosforth, Newcastle NE3 3HD. Tel: 0191 284 3700. 7:30pm. £7.00. Gosforth Jazz Club.

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.
