Walter & Mitch to catch up at Sage

(Preview by Russell)
One-time Bluesbreaker Walter Trout returns to Tyneside to play Sage Gateshead on Monday 11 November. Trout (Provogue record label’s big draw) has been at the top of the game for more years than he would care to remember: Lowell Fulson and Pee Wee Crayton were quick to recognise the talents of the man from Ocean City, New Jersey. John Lee Hooker employed the guitar ace and the prized gig of working with Canned Heat raised his profile to stratospheric heights. The call from John Mayall assured his place in the pantheon of blue-rock guitar greats.
A few years later the Walter Trout Band was born, many albums followed and a non-stop world-wide tour itinerary shows no signs of slowing down. The Sage Gateshead date is an extra special occasion with County Durham’s Mitch Laddie opening for Trout. The pair are old buddies having worked together in the past – hard to believe as Laddie is just in his mid-twenties. Laddie’s trio recently recorded a live CD at the Cluny. The place was packed and the boys played brilliantly. Expect more of the same on Monday at Sage Gateshead. Walter Trout always delivers. His early Tyneside appearances at the legendary Riverside venue through to recent  02 Academy performances share a common denominator – full-on, blues rock power guitar playing. Hall Two, Sage Gateshead on Monday promises more of the same.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to all of them other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.
