Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

Way Out West Down South

Our chums in the capital, LondonJazz, have drawn my attention to a venue, The Orange Tree, (not to be confused with the Cherry Tree in Jesmond of which more later) in Richmond, Surrey. This Wednesday night jazzerie (my own word!) featuring various jazz musicians living in and around West London and includes some very big names indeed.
On their website is a promotional video featuring some of the names including snippets of Tim Whitehead, Julian Siegal, Anita Wardell and our old buddy Vasilis Xenopoulos.

Looks and sounds good.
However, closer to home, tonight (Monday Dec. 28) our own 'jazzerie' the Cherry Tree Restaurant on Osborne Rd., Jesmond, where Vasy played in one of our "Gigs of the Year", features the Nick Pride Trio with vocals by Lauren Shepherd. That's Nick on guitar, Ian Paterson bass, Oz Cassidy drums and the delectable Lauren the icing on this particular Christmas cake.
Mouth-watering -- just like the menu.
Lance.
