Preview: Jo Harrop w. Paul Edis Trio - Cherry Tree. TONIGHT! (June 3.)

It has been a while since Jo Harrop appeared at the Cherry Tree but, on Wednesday (June 3), the waiting is over. Accompanied by the Paul Edis Trio, Jo makes her long-awaited return to the popular jazz influenced eaterie. Swingers or ballads, the voice and personality now so well acknowledged on the London scene, makes a welcome, albeit fleeting, return to her native northeast. 
With every singer’s inspirational cushion behind her in the form of the Paul Edis Trio, what are you waiting for? Oh yes, the menu! Now, I’d happily diet on dried bread and water – some folk say I should have been doing that for years – to listen to Jo but that’s not on the menu at the Cherry Tree – instead, have a look at their fixed price menu.

If, in the hard to visualise scenario, Jo doesn't make you salivate then the food most surely will!
Io Harrop with the Paul Edis Trio @ The Cherry Tree Restaurant, 9 Osborne Rd., Jesmond, Newcastle NE2 2AE. 0191 2300024. June 3, 7.30pm. Free,
Lance.

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.
