Gateshead Festival

A free - as in priceless - afternoon at The Sage with most of the 'usual suspects' from The Side Café strutting their stuff. Unfair to single anyone out although Zoë Gilby and Emma Fisk proved that jazz isn't a totally masculine domain; both were brilliant.Splashed out on a Clifford Brown box set; not least because one of the tunes was, you've guessed it, 'You're a Lucky Guy'. Took a lot of photos; They're in the gallery.
