Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

Preview Quercus - The Sage, April 27.

If, like me, you missed Iain Ballamy at GIJF there is, thankfully, a second chance to catch him as part of Quercus a jazz/folk trio. As well as Ballamy on saxes the trio comprises June Tabor on voice and Huw Warren on piano. The music is a strangely compelling and evocative mix of jazz and folk with an almost medieval feel to it.
Check out Near But Far Away. Also Lassie Lie Near Me.
Both tracks are from their recently released CD.
