Paul Edis Preview(s)

This week could be said to be Paul Edis Week with at least two known gigs listed.
Roly has already posted info on the trio's gig at Blaydon on Thursday (May 13) Paul being the Bill Evansish pianist enigmatically referred to by Roly.
This should provide the impetus to catch Bill/Paul with the Sextet on Sunday (May 16) at the Bridge Hotel, Newcastle, as part of the Splinter @ The Bridge series of Sunday nighters.
There is new material and new faces in the sextet line-up for this gig. John Hirst is on drums, Andy Champion plays bass and Alex Leathard will be sliding around on trombone.
For some audio samples of what to expect check out Paul's MySpace link.
Despite being listed as being by the trio the first two items are in fact by the Sextet.
Lance.
