This Thursday (July 21) @ Corner House Heaton

When Simon Spillett Emailed me last September to let me know that American bebop altoist Greg Abate was going to be in the UK July 2011 and that he, Simon, was looking to set up dates for him I had no hesitation in forwarding the info to the Wise Men of Jazz North East and the deal was done.
Abate, as the YouTube clip shows, is a very lucid player steeped in the post bop idiom and I am looking forward to this gig with the anticipation built up over almost 12 months.
The altoist is backed by the Paul Edis Trio thus reviving memories of those halcyon Corner House days when JNE would regularly feature American musicians with a local trio - first it was with Malcolm Saul, then Billy Harper and now Paul Edis.
Please show your support and who knows but that the tradition may be maintained?
Lance.
Greg Abate w. Paul Edis Trio, Corner House, Heaton. July 21. 8:00pm. £10/£7 (conc.)
