Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise June 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

Tom Harrison to tour Ireland with David Lyttle

Altoist Tom Harrison may be London based but he's appeared in the north east on enough occasions for us to take an interest in his progress. Tom has played at The Bridge with Dagda - a memorable session that included the great American tenor player Jean Toussaint. The sparks flew that evening. There was another evening with Eyes Shut Tight and one with the Paul Baxter Quartet. Add last year's Scarborough Jazz Festival where, as part of the Paul Baxter Orchestra, he traded choruses and fours with Alan Barnes as well as sitting in with James Birkett in between concerts.
So yes we know Tom so that when he emailed me recently I hoped it was to let me know he was coming back up north.
No such luck! However, our loss is Ireland's gain as, next month he embarks on a back to back 14 day tour of Ireland (both north and south) in the company of Irish drum legend David Lyttle. The venues are large and small but I'll bet you a shamrock to a shillelagh they go down a storm and Tom becomes addicted to Poteen and Guinness!
For more details read Tom's article re David Lyttle plus tour dates on .LondonJazzNews
Lance.
PS: Detailed also on LJN is a follow up tour in February 2014. This will include guitarist Jamie Taylor alongside those mentioned. - only thing I can say to this is - the luck of the Irish!
