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)

Update on Zoe Gilby and Andy Champion

This must have been a pretty good week for Zoe and Andy - the north-east jazz world's favourite couple. Not only did Andy's new band, AVC, play a storming debut gig at the Bridge Hotel on Thursday but basso supremo Andy also, I'm told, excelled in exalted company during the weekend's "On The Outside Festival" at Gateshead Town Hall.
He also found time to nip away and accompany Zoe on a duo set at Marsden (Yorkshire) Jazz Festival without missing a beat!
I'm told the couple did good at Marsden.
If you missed it the good news is that you should gan (go) along the Scotswood Road to Blaydon CIU Club on Thursday night where, at 8:30 pm, they do it all again in the "cosy lounge."
The bad news is that it is only a small room so get there early.
Lance.
