Tasha Seale @ The Cherry Tree.

Tasha Seale (vcl); Stuart Collingwood (pno); Neil Harland (bs); Malcolm Dick (dms).
After a tentative Stella, Tasha swung out on Bye Bye Blackbird followed by Love Me Or Leave Me and God Bless the Child.
Despite her association with a smash hit musical, the double M words weren't mentioned instead Ms Seale concentrated, at least for the first set, on gasbook material such as the above, Lady is a Tramp and My Favourite Things. Well Rodgers and Hammerstein might include brown paper packages tied up with string amongst their favourite things but mine would start with Confit Pork, Blue Cheese and Walnut Rillette, Apple Puree and Pickled Shallots.
Tasha went into Makin' Whoopee which is what I was doing in anticipation of my Bavette Steak with Frites, Garlic and Parsley Butter. 
All of Me why not take all of me sang Tasha - I did just that with my Bavette steak!.
Billy Joel's New York State of Mind (clever title) signified a move towards more contemporary material such as I Will Survive and My Cherie Amour.
Peel Me A Grape - a number as sensuous as my Sticky Toffee Pudding with Salt Butter Caramel - saw the band fall into a nice, relaxed groove behind the singer.
Stu provided sound backing as well as great solos. The trio's feature, I Got Rhythm, went at tempo de lick and nobody abandoned ship.
A good session.
Lance.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to all of them other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.
