Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 January 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.
