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)

The Three Faces of Ruth

Tonight, Ruth Lambert fronts Paul Edis (pno), Mick Shoulder (bs) and Rob Walker (dms) at Jesmond's Cherry Tree Restaurant.
This is the ideal setting for one of our favourite divas - a congenial atmosphere, nonpareil backing from Paul, Mick and Rob, and food that will make your taste buds do the Lindy Hop.
Expect some tasty tunes too from Ruth's latest album.
Ruth has been a busy girl of late wowing them at the Bascule on Thursday, stepping back in time on Friday at the Fell and tomorrow big banding at All Saints Church in Cleadon - each gig displaying a different facet of her style.
Tonight however, has the look of a good night particularly as it is the last of the 'two courses for £10' menu until after Xmas. Next week it is the Xmas Table d'hote menu with Mo Scott and Stu Collingwood's Trio - that sounds/tastes pretty good too!

Sorry I didn't make it tonight - felt slightly fatigued. From what I hear on the jazz drums it was a good one.
