Bebop Spoken There

Ace Trio to play Blaydon Jazz Club

(Preview by Russell)
This Sunday (21 August) the Black Bull welcomes one of the great jazz trios of our time. Pianist Paul Edis is to play an engagement at Blaydon Jazz Club with his new trio. Edis, Andy Champion and Russ Morgan, it doesn’t get any better than this. Firmly established as one of the finest pianists on the British jazz scene, Edis juggles a number of projects – trio, sextet, MD of a work-shopping/gigging young combo, MD of a local community big band, sideman to several of his peers and a full-on teaching commitment. And then there is concert promotion across the north east of England, not forgetting the small matter of organising a jazz festival (Ushaw Durham Jazz Festival, August 26-28)!




Working with Edis at the Blaydon Bridge Street venue will be Andy Champion and Russ Morgan. Bassist Champion has won acclaim as a composer, a bandleader and bass player. ACV, Spelk, Shiver, first call sideman, erstwhile promoter, touring internationally, Andy Champion is the man to hear. A couple of years ago Russ Morgan relocated to Tyneside.  Having previously worked with many of the biggest names, the tall, easy-going drummer soon began to pick-up the better gigs in the region. Top drummer, top trio, the Paul Edis Trio.

The Paul Edis Trio at the Black Bull, Blaydon – Sunday 21 August, 8:00pm. £5.00.
Unreservedly recommended.

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.
