Bebop Spoken There

Faye McCalman: "For a while I would hear other artists and feel that I need to be like that person, have what they have; but then I realised that everyone has their own thing and what I connect with most is when I can tell an artist is just being themselves." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Captain's Log - Star Date 17/11/2013 Blaydon Jazz Club at The Black Bull

Steve Andrews (ten/sop); Graham Hardy (tpt/flgl); Paul Edis (pno); Mick Shoulder (bs); Adam Sinclair (dms).
I wouldn't want to let this lovely  session pass without an acknowledgement. When you book a band and it all works out great, it is very rewarding. This evening at Blaydon Jazz Club, Steve Andrews, Graham Hardy, Paul Edis, Mick Shoulder and Adam Sinclair sure served up a memorable musical treat to an enthusiastic audience. They played their socks off!
The session as a whole was rather boppish in style with a very interesting and varied selection of tunes including Lester Leaps in, Just One of Those Things, Shiny Stockings, a tender version of Embraceable You, Horace Silver's Song for my Father and Sister Sadie, Boppin' on a Riff (Navarro/Dameron) and Donby (Byas). Among many highlights was a gorgeous version of Kern's Yesterdays and a delightful version of John Handy's Dancy Dancy. All the boys really were on great form and it must go down as one of the best concerts we've had down the years. 
'Thank you for the music' as a certain Swedish pop band would say.
