Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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)

Shiver 3 @ Central Bar, Gateshead. Oct. 2.

Chris Sharkey (guitar), Andy Champion (electric bass) & Joost Hendrickx (drums)
As part of their current eight venue tour, Shiver 3 made a welcome return visit to the Central Bar’s upper room and its ‘compact’ performance space.  In a  very busy week for Jazz in the North East,  the audience grew to, not quite the numbers we saw for their previous visit a year ago, but, nevertheless, the appreciative audience were duly rewarded by the same energy emanating from the trio who still sounded as fresh and in-your-face (well, ears really!) as ever J  With their driving rhythms, incessant bass action and Sharkey’s ever-present swirling guitar solos or supportive block chords/ambient sounds - overlaid  (or underpinned?) with electronic treatments  (guitar, bass and drums each had a selection of electronic devices to call on as required) - the sound was as strong and loud as ever!      
Good gig.

If a picture paints a thousand words...
Well done Ken.
