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)

ACV @ The Bridge Hotel.


Andy Champion (bs); Graeme Wilson (ten/bar); Paul Edis (keys); Mark Williams (gtr); Adrian Tilbrook (dms).
In the beginning God created the Emcee Five. He said "Go and procreate modern jazz throughout the wilderness of Newcastle and take it to the fleshpots of London."
The five Emceans did that and won much acclaim.
The natives, they were taken and demanded more - even in the barren land known as The Side of the Tees - a river. From hence emerged a triumvirate of musicians who came in via the rear entrance and called themselves - Back Door!
Which leads me to apologise for the above nonsense except to say that ACV is surely the logical progression from those two bands and is the hottest local band around and, after their recent national tour, scrub local  - tomorrow The World and I ain't joking.
The gig at The Bridge was possibly the best I've ever heard them. Playing a mix of the familiar and not so familiar they delighted a well attended Splinter @ The Bridge Hotel audience. In a band like this it is impossible to single out individuals so take a collective bow guys.
Great session.
Lance.
