Preview: Tonight @ Hoochie

Thursday 17 September 2015; Doors: 7pm Stage: 9pm
Once in a while an artist comes along that you just want to get behind for the love of the music. Hoochie Coochie have done this numerous times with artists like Marcell Russell & Big Brooklyn Red. We feel exactly the same way about Jay Nemor. To prove it we invite you to attend a showcase gig absolutely free of charge !
Jay Nemor was born in Houston Texas & began plating the alto sax @ the age of 11. He recalls seeing Earth Wind & Fire as a youth & became influenced by Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, Teddy Pendergrass & Gil Scott Heron among others. In later life Jill Scott & Erykah Badu & D'Angelo have influenced him. A fabulous education in the hands of these artists.
Following his career as a professional basketball player he found himself in Iceland in 1998. He joined a jazz band called Jaguar which influenced him in the world of Jazz. After moving to Norway he formed a duo called Kenya & Nemor & released his debut album "Just Becuz", which was released in Japan.
He is now releasing his first solo album , "Just Sayin" which is what turned us on to him. It's fantastic. We want you to hear it live @ Hoochie Coochie first, so get in first to hear an amazing artist. This is Jay's first ever gig in the UK with full band.

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.
