Tonight at the Chilli - MONK LIVES!

The HARLEY JOHNSON TRIO pay tribute to Thelonious Monk with a special one hour set at the Chillingham tonight. With Eric Stutt (dms) and Jim Crinson (bs) it looks like being a 'gasser' if you'll excuse my archaic expression.
Harley, one week short of his eighteenth birthday, tells me the trio will be augmented by Paul Gowland on tenor and resident maitre d', Dave Weisser, on trumpet and vocals.
Like wow!
The gig kicks off around 8:00 pm with Monastic activities commencing around nine (should be midnight!).
With gigs like tonight's 2 (3) I imagine 100s of jazzers from York heading up to Newcastle whilst the Newcastle jazzers head down to York. Perhaps they'll collide halfway and end up at Jeremy McMurray's gig at The Causeway near Hartlepool!
