Charles Gordon @ The Cherry Tree by Peter (Peter and Gordon!)

Against all expectations, a large number of souls braved the winter wasteland of Jesmond to enjoy the offerings of good food and uplifting live jazz music at The Cherry Tree last night.
Due to the weather, the visit of the Andrea Pattison Quintet was postponed until the 1st February when the arctic conditions are rumoured to be lifting and those not owning Chelsea tractors will be able to use their cars again.
However, the very talented jazz pianist Charles Gordon stepped in at short notice when the mercury inched past zero degrees to play two great sets drawing appreciative applause from the diners.
His repertoire included "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" ( appropriate !), "The Look of Love", "The Lady is a Tramp", "I've Got You Under My Skin", "The End of Love" (by Dave Grusin), "South of the Tyne" (his own composition ), "Autumn Leaves", " A Lovely Day Today" (joke ), "Moonlight in Vermont" (the only song ever written without a rhyme in the lyrics), "Masquerade", "Spooky", and "Cantaloupe Island" (Herbie Hancock).
We look forward to getting back to normal with the first visit to The Cherry Tree of the Harley Johnson Trio next Monday 18th January.
Peter.
