Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

Red Hot Chilli Arms

Chaos is never far away at the Chillingham Arms Wednesday nighters and tonight was no exception. Nevertheless, as always, from the musical mayhem a few satisfying moments emerged. 'Au Privave', 'Solar', 'Beautiful Love' and 'Song For My Father' were perhaps the most memorable. The temperature rose considerably when a black guy called, I think, John sat in on drums. He dropped more bombs than fell on London during the Blitz inspiring guitarist Daniel to an equally frenetic solo. A drummer to note.
With Ian prominant by his absence, the saxes were a little more sedate although another guy called John had his moments on tenor and Nicola played some gutsy baritone on Jerome Kern's 'Yesterdays'.
Next week the Alan Glen Trio pay their monthly dues.
