Bebop Spoken There

Dominique Eade: "If individual parts are being given to other instrumentalists, singers should also be given their own notated part." - (DownBeat January 2021).

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARLENE LIDDLE & PAUL GOWLAND

New Band in the North East.

Just finished listening to a demo record by a new band The North East Four (NE4). Four good men and true - Paul Gowland (tenor sax); Ray Truscott (6 string electric bass); Alan Law (piano); Paul Wight (drums).
A modern quartet that doesn't stray  too far from the contemporary mainstream. A couple of originals by Truscott  and a piece entitled Savoy Cabbage which is based on the Eddie Daniels/Gary Burton arrangement of Stomping at the Savoy are what's on the demo and it shows them off to advantage - well it would wouldn't it!
The Star, The Forum, Travellers Rest,.Splinter, Lit and Phil are some of the clubs/venues this band would easily slot into.
Interested parties email Ray Truscott - raytruscott@gmail.com.
Lance.
