Gig of the Year

Chris Yates instigated the "Gig of the Year" on this site and set the ball rolling with his choice of Joshua Redman Trio/Guy Barker Big Band double bill at the Sage Jazz Festival.
Since then there has been support for, among others, Sheila Jordan at The Sage, Vasilous Xenopolous at Blaydon/Cherry Tree, Ryan Quigley Sextet at Scarborough Jazz Festival, Sonny Rollins at the Barbican and Alan Glen at the Chilli.
With the sad passing of Chris, and out of respect, perhaps those who haven't yet made their choice would do so. Whilst I prefer 1 per person, if you can't make up your mind go for two plus if possible a local North-east gig.

My favourite 'local musicians' gig this last year would be Zoe & Andy's unique duo performance at Blaydon on 15th Oct. What a treat that was.

The best gigs are those when you can play with the best guys, an appreciative audience, good grub and bevvy laid on and get good money on the night, Ray
