Pete Gilligan's Jam Session @ Hoochie Coochie. Thursday Sept. 6.

Pete Gilligan (pno); Steve Glendinning (gtr); Paul Susans(bs); ? (dms). + Lindsay Hannon (vcl); Gabriele Heller (vcl); Steve ? (ten).

I had hoped to go to Blaydon last night with my mate Alan. Unfortunately Alan's prestigious gig at Bothal Castle with Ellington Colliery Band overran. He very kindly gave me a lift to Hoochie later in the night - just in time to hear the end of the first set from the quartet. The second set saw saxophonist Steve (a newcomer to me) join the band. A very polished performance. Several nice numbers from Gabriele followed by Lindsay to end the night, the band playing on until 11 oclock. I had to run up Northumberland Street and just managed to catch the 23:05 last bus to Ashington 
Plenty of variety of styles and overall a highly entertaining night. If this is a regular jam session please give us more Warren! 
A lovely lady with a top notch camera took lots of pics. I gave her Lance's email address - hope we can see her work some time.
Numbers were down at Hoochie last night, I know that some folks would be at Blaydon but numbers seem to be down everywhere at the moment - we only had 30 at Ashington on Wednesday.

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.
