Bebop Spoken There

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.
