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)

Take it to the Bridge @ The Chilli. August 18

Dave Weisser (trumpet & flugelhorn), Paul Gowland (tenor saxophone), Andy Lee (alto saxophone & wooden flute), Alan Laws (tenor saxophone), Dougie Fielder (tenor saxophone), Jim Crinson (double bass), Barrie Ascroft (keyboards), Rob Bates (drums)
It was another enjoyable evening at the Chilli. Paid my £1 in and was part of a 3 strong audience which swelled to about 10 after half time. Horn players in the band were out in force though. Tunes included Night in Tunisia, Soon (by Gershwin), Peri’s Scope, Shadow of your Smile and Au Privave. Paul Gowland was in good form, Alan Laws was playing some nice growling sax, Dougie Fielder was back on tenor after impressing on Soprano the previous week, Andy Lee played some sweet wooden flute, and Dave the Rave played some mellow flugel. The rhythm section kept the large horn line together well.
There is no Take it to the Bridge this Wednesday (August 25) due to Dave’s vacationing commitments.
