Tomorrow Night (Thursday April 13) @ The Globe - Alan Glen Trio

I've followed Alan Glen for many years going back to Newcastle Jazz Festivals, The Cooperage, on Newcastle Quayside, a pub on Sheriff Hill in Gateshead, The Chilli, The Jazz Café and the Globe where, last year, he celebrated his 80th birthday and maybe as many millions of  notes over the years!
Well, Alan's back at Jazz Coop HQ tomorrow (Thursday) and, as Bud and Oscar are no longer around, this is the place to be.
The current line-up has John Pope on bass and Sid White on drums who takeover the roles previously held by, among others, Ray Truscott, Laurence Blackadder, David Carnegie and Paul Wight.
If you like standards, originals, a bit of bebop and some of the classiest piano playing this side of New York City then the 22 bus leaves from outside Newcastle's [Grand] Central Station at 2/22/42 minutes past the hour for a one stop journey. 8pm start and admission a mere fiver (during April students get in free!).
Lance.
