Sing, Sing, Sing.

The singers are out in force tonight across the region. That boisterous vocal extremist Sandi Russell is with the Paul Edis Trio at Hoochie Coochie. Up river at Blaydon Ruth Lambert struts her stuff with the Customs House Big Band whilst further upstream at Hexham Arts Centre Lindsay Hannon Plus will be doing their thing. At La Bodega Tapas Bar in Morpeth Jack Hamilton plays solo piano but there is, I'm told, usually some vocal input from April the owner.
However, if your tastes run towards the wordless then the Jazz North East presentation of Vole at The Bridge Hotel could be the one for you.
Tradsters are catered for by the Vieux Carré Jazzmen at The Millstone in South Gosforth or the Maine Street Jazzmen over in Sunniside in the Marquis of Granby.
No excuse for staying in tonight!
Full details in the RH column.

With such a plethora of gigs to chose from I have to go and pick today to get loaded down with a heavy cold so will miss out on tonight's gigs.
Anyone up to writing a review is most welcome to do so.
