Tonight, Tonight, Won't Be just Any Night...

...and I don't mean the Election that they tell me is taking place.
Even without a session at Blaydon the choice is plentiful.
Jazz North East have the Emile Parisien Quartet at Gateshead Old Town Hall. This French Quartet may mean that we see Europe in a completely new light.
Down in South Shields, at the Customs House, the Ray Chester Big Band with the wonderful Mia Webb and the fabulous Fenner Sisters remind us of those glorious big band years when all you had to worry about was a Doodlebug homing in on you.
Up at Sunniside, in the Marquis of Granby, the Vieux Carré Jazzmen are stomping off whilst way down south in Stockton the Oxbridge New Orleans Preservation Jazz Band are at the Oxbridge Hotel.
However, the gig of them all may be at the Queens Hall Hexham where ACV perform.
ACV, incidentally also perform at London's prestigious Vortex on August 31 - Andy Champion and co are on their way.
Lance.
