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)

A Look Ahead to GIJF - The Peggy Lee Project

As the Gateshead International Jazz Festival approaches (March 23 - 25) I thought I'd draw attention to one of the concerts I'm looking forward to - Gwyneth Herbert and the Peggy Lee Project with the (virtual) Buck Clayton All-stars.
One of the UK’s most well-known singer-songwriter, Gwyneth Herbert, joins forces with the members of the Buck Clayton Legacy Band to explore the jazz repertoire of Peggy Lee. The band’s arrangers, Matthias Seuffert, Adrian Fry and Menno Daams, have taken Lee’s work with Jack Marshall, Quincy Jones and Billy May to create new charts for what has been recognised as one of Europe’s leading mainstream bands.
Gwyneth brings her own unique gift for storytelling in song to reinterpret tales of love lost and found, as well as the life affirming qualities of music itself. Expect vibrant playing from what Jazz UK called this “knockout band” plus tears of pain and joy from songs both familiar and less well known. Gwyneth and co-leader Alyn Shipton will also introduce the event with film and audio clips of Peggy Lee herself.
Gwyneth Herbert: Vocals, 
Alyn Shipton: Bass, 
Menno Daams
Ian Smith: Trumpets, 
Alan Barnes, 
Matthias Seuffert: Reeds, 
Adrian Fry: Trombone, 
Martin Litton: Piano, 
Martin Wheatley: Guitar, 
Bobby Worth: Drums. 
With a pre-concert talk at 7pm. Free to ticket holders. 
"Life is for Living" - The Peggy Lee Project - Hall Two Saturday March 24. 8:00pm. £16.50.

I'm also looking forward to the Peter King Quartet. One of the best alto sax players ever.
