Bebop Spoken There

Gretchen Parlato: "There's always an essence of the original [tune] that should be protected. I try to find that first - it's the thing that draws me to the material" - (DownBeat, March 2021)

(Preview) Doctor (Contemporary) Jazz prescribes trio VD

Valentine’s Day has come early. This Saturday (December 1) at the Sage Gateshead the hottest trio on the planet - trio VD – returns to the Northern Rock Foundation Hall. The band’s Jazz Festival appearance resulted in a standing ovation and a similar reaction is to be expected this weekend. Key members of LIMA - Leeds Improvised Music Association - the trio of Chris Sharkey (guitar), Christoph de Bezenac (alto sax & electronics) and Chris Bussey (drums) will dazzle and amaze. Their music isn't for the faint-hearted; laser-like precision, mega riffs, rapier thrusts, swaggering virtuosity. The first CD Fill It Up with Ghosts was met with critical acclaim, the next one - Maze – is due out early next year and is sure to garner plaudits. Laden with prizes (Mojo, Jazzwise) trio VD will be an absolute treat for those with open ears. Arrive early to ensure you get a ticket. There is a support act and it all kicks-off at 8:15 pm.
Russell.
