Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

The Wonder of Orla Murphy.

Jazz vocalist Orla Murphy, with her trio, will be performing a magical evening of Stevie Wonder hits on Sunday 24 June at Square Chapel, Halifax.
She will be performing a set of new jazz arrangements of songs selected from his works of the 1970s, which many regard as his ‘classic’ period.  Orla’s interpretations stay true to the essence of the originals, so expect to hear well known hits such as ‘All I Do’ and ‘Another Star’.
Orla’s rich voice is perfectly suited to Stevie Wonder’s magical style, crossing the boundaries between jazz and soul effortlessly.  Orla’s distinctive, rich sound has often been compared to the great vocalists Nina Simone, Cleo Laine and Diana Krall.
Sunday 24 June, 7.30pm, Tickets£11 & £9 concessions, Box Office: 01422 349422,www.squarechapel.co.uk

Note, I rarely post detailed info on gigs outside of the North East unless I, or one of my team, are going to be in attendance or there is a N.E. connection. This is to avoid being overworked!
