Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat June 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)

Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Tonight (August 26) @ The Cherry Tree

A rather special night at the Cherry Tree Restaurant (9 Osborne Rd., Jesmond, Newcastle NE2 2AE. 0191 2399924) tonight - the Peter Gilligan Trio featuring Alice Grace. Peter Gilligan is well known and justifiably recognised as one of the best jazz pianists around whilst Alice Grace, in a relatively short space of time, has built up a strong fan base that began with an impromptu appearance at a late night jam session at this years GIJF. Since then she has gone from strength to strength. Prior to arriving in the north east her career incorporated a stint with NYJO, the Guildhall School of Music, the house band at Ronnie Scott's and a recent tour of Dubai. This, her first appearance at the Cherry Tree, promises to be a very special night. 
Another relative newcomer to the area is drummer Russ Morgan who, like Ms. Grace, is making waves in all the right places. Add Mister Dependable Paul Grainger on double bass and you have the recipe for a great night. Talking of recipes, the food's fantastic!
My suggestion is to reserve a table now - it's yours for the whole evening. Doors open at 6.30pm and the music starts at 7.00pm. Table d'Hote and A la Carte menus served at usual prices without cover charge.
Lance.
