Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

This is my 'old' quartet. Well, from 2008. The days when we played to empty houses and £40 taxi rides and lucky to even get £5 for the gig, so I decided to give it all up (I mean in terms of having a band!!) until the Chilli came along. But listening to these tracks also shows how my playing has came on a hell of a lot from hard practice which I rarely did back then so maybe I need to invest in having some more recent recordings or more gigs.....

p.s. in case anything pops up I have my own myspace: www.myspace.com/harleyjohnsonpiano and YouTube site: http://www.youtube.com/user/harleyjohnsonpiano (which already includes a video of me playing at the Gateshead Jazz Festival 2009 with the Improvisers Orchestra of the North, plus some of my favourite videos by other great artists).
