The Secret Gig of Riley @ The Lit & Phil. Monday April 27

(Preview/Investigation by Russell of the Yard)
The first Newcastle Noir takes place on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd May at the Lit & Phil on Westgate Road in Newcastle. Talks, tours and workshops will explore the multi-faceted crime writing genre. From page to screen, gangsters and gangs, the world of the legal eagle, it’s all there for the committed fan. There is, however, a mystery in the form of a ‘who dunnit?’ or rather a ‘who didn’t do it?’ that will forever remain unsolved.
Six days before Newcastle Noir takes over the city centre library, a little known event of interest to the jazz fan will take place. Monday 27th April (7:30pm) sees the Paul Riley Quintet playing in the Loftus Room. The gig was something of a secret. Why there was non-existent publicity will defeat the best of the sleuths. Jazz fans were kept in the dark. They knew nothing about it. Now they do! Reedsman Riley is on a Jazz Services’ tour promoting his recently released CD Into View (see Bebop Spoken Here’s review).
Joining Riley is a top-notch line-up: north-easterner Rick Simpson (piano), guitarist Ant Law (gigging with his own band in Hexham, May 20th), Matt Ridley (double bass) and drummer Will Glaser. Tickets are £10.00. and £8.00. It is no secret that this will be a gig of exceptional quality. Why not purchase a copy of the CD on the night and consider it ‘Exhibit A’ in the mysterious case of Paul Riley’s very low profile appearance at the Lit and Phil!

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.
