Bebop Spoken There

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARLENE LIDDLE & PAUL GOWLAND

Sunday, January 15, 2012

Tonight @ The Bridge and elsewhere.

Tonight promises to be a special and at the same time a rather sad night. Special inasmuch as we have Noel Dennis on trumpet and flugel alongside Graeme Wilson on tenor backed by Paul Edis (keys), Andy Champion (bass) and Adrian Tilbrook (drums).
The program is billed as a tribute to Miles Davis and hopefully will be centred around that glorious period from say 1953 - 1969 when Miles made some of most iconic recordings in jazz.
So where, I hear you ask, does the sadness come in?
Well Noel is leaving the north-east to take up a position in Scotland and, whilst we wish him all the best, his departure will leave a gap in the local brass scene.
Which prompts me to say lets all turn out and give him a party night to remember. (Bridge Hotel, Castle Garth, Newcastle. 8:00pm. £5.)
Lance.
PS: Prior to the gig you could start off at the Central Bar at the other end of the High Level Bridge and catch the MO SCOTT BAND (4pm-6pm free.) Then leg it back over the bridge to the Jazz Café on Pink Lane for the jam session before going to the Bridge Hotel. That way your miles will be rewarded with Miles.
If however you're more into soul and funk then Hoochie Coochie offer the Teapad Orchestra for free!.
