Price Smokin’ at the Jazz Café

(Preview by Russell)
Following the Nigel Price Trio’s incendiary performance at the inaugural Ushaw Durham Jazz Festival, guitarist Price is heading to Newcastle’s Jazz Café. Clear your diary! Friday, September 16 is the date. You must get to the Jazz Café on Pink Lane. Arrive early, bag a seat in the upstairs room and hold on tight! Read Stephen Tulip’s review of the guitarist’s sensational performance at Ushaw then pick up the phone and book your tickets for what promises to be one helluva smokin’ gig. At the Jazz Café Price will be working with Ross Stanley, Hammond groove master, and the brilliant drummer Steve Brown.

As a bonus, there will be a support set from the Early Bird Band. Tutored by Paul Edis, it is great to see young musicians taking to the stage on such a prestigious gig. Expectations are high, these lads are more than up to meeting and exceeding them.

Nigel Price is currently on a mammoth tour - fifty plus dates - and the band is on smokin’ hot form. Don’t miss the Newcastle date. Jazz Café on Friday, September 16. It starts at 8:15pm (doors 7:45pm). Advance tickets cost £5.00. Don’t delay, telephone the Jazz Café today on 0191 222 9882. If you don’t, you risk being turned away on the night!

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.
