Bebop Spoken There

Belá Fleck: "...he [Chick Corea] brought out the best in musicians. Not only would you get to play with him, but you'd get to play with the best version of yourself." - (DownBeat April 2021).

The Week Ahead

The Cherry Tree this Monday night is rather special. Owner Peter Wardle makes a point of booking singers and musicians from out of the area when they're nearby hence we've had Veronica Chard, Sarah Ellen Hughes, Jo Harrup, Vasilis Xenopoulos and Tasha Seale.
Earlier this year, Tasha wowed the diners with her knock-out versions of, among others, Love Me Or Leave Me, Bye Bye Blackbird and All of Me as well as more contemporary material such as Billy Joel's New York State of Mind. In the meantime, she's had a baby and is now back swinging and singing. Coupled with the Stu Collingwood Trio and the Cherry Tree's reputation for fine dining this promises to be quite a night - don't let anyone tell you otherwise!
------- 
The Tom Gibbs Quartet play The Bridge Hotel on Sunday night as part of a double bill with Sonsale. The Gibbs Quartet's CD Fear of Flying has just charted in the Top Ten of Mojo Magazine's top jazz albums of the year. As Sonsale include Corey Mwamba on vibes and Andy Champion on bass plus a couple of 'imports' this is another gig worthy of support. (Starts earlier than usual at 7:30pm).
----- 
On Tuesday, Schmazz @ The Cluny features trumpet player Andre Canniere's group whilst on Thursday, The Cluny have Ginger Baker's Jazz Fusion which includes Pee Wee Ellis on tenor and Cream legend Baker on drums.
However, don't forget the grass roots gigs like the Jazz Café, Hoochie Coochie where Pete Gilligan hosts his end of the month jam session, The Chilli which has a Wednesday workshop (posh jam session) and the various trad venues.
Check out the listings in the RH column for further details.
Quite a week!
Lance.
