Bebop Spoken There

Jennifer Wharton: "People forget that the trombone is so glorious. It can be like going to church, or getting ready for battle. It can be a lot of things....For a longtime I was the only female trombonist in New York," - (DownBeat May 2021)

Gracelandia

This week the north-east has been renamed  Gracelandia, or possibly, Alice Springs. Alice Grace, our favourite singer, springs up just about everywhere.
Tonight (June 15) Alice and the Peter Gilligan Trio (Peter Grainger, piano, Paul Grainger, bass, Russ Morgan, drums) are at the Cherry Tree Restaurant, 9 Osborne Rd., Newcastle NE2 2AE. 0191 2399924. 7:15pm.
This promises to be a rather special night as the restaurant's new Head Chef, Farah Rakani has redesigned the Table d'Hote menu which is being launched tonight. There's no cover charge just good food and great music.
----- 
Tomorrow (June 16) Alice and the trio go from Tyneside to Wearside for a gig at Durham's Empty Shop, 35c Framwellgate Bridge, Durham DH1 4SY. 0191 3863428. 8pm. £5 (£4 student).
----- 
Sunday (June 19) Paul Gowland (sax) is added to the ensemble for a visit to Blaydon Jazz Club, Black Bull, Bridge St., Blaydon NE21 4JJ. 8pm. £5.
Three great gigs by a great singer!
Lance.
