GIJF - After thoughts

Wow! This year's GIJF has had such a buzz - the blog's passed the million views and reviews are coming in right left and centre. which is great. Not everybody liked everything but everyone liked something and the ambiance around the whole building was just something else.
Trying to keep up with it all, however, is difficult - a bit like being the editor of a local newspaper when World War 27 breaks out in a neighbouring village!
I'm doing my best - excuse me whilst I find my tin hat!
Hopefully all who were at Sage Gateshead will discover, via this blog, all the wonderful jazz that is going on in the region throughout the year, both at Sage Gateshead and other lesser known but no less appealing venues - there is even a gig in Hebburn coming up!

Good to meet you Lance and more of the Bebop bloggers, enjoyed the review of the SNJO Duke concert featuring Tommy Smith and honorary Scot and ex-RAM trumpeter Tom Walsh!
