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.
