Preview: ARQ @ the Globe Jazz Bar - November 22.

A star-studded quintet can be heard at the Globe Jazz Bar tomorrow night (Thursday, Nov. 22 - 8pm) when the Jazz Coop and JNE present the award-winning band ARQ.
ARQ, short for Alison Rayner Quintet, was, along with BSH, a winner at the recent Parliamentary Jazz Awards ceremony and comprises five of the UK's finest.

I first heard Deirdre Cartwright at the Side Café back in 2009 when, with fellow guitarist Kathy Dyson, they paid tribute to the late Emily Remler. Four years later, I heard her again, this time at a bar in Stoke Newington where Alison Rayner was on bass and Diane McLoughlin sat in on tenor. Pianist Steve Lodder has popped up at Scarborough Jazz Festival on several occasions whilst, although I may not have heard drummer Buster Birch live, I have heard him on disc including on an album with this present line-up.

The album, August, was a cracker and I think we can expect more fireworks at the Globe tomorrow night and all for a tenner! 
Not to be missed!

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.
