Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

Ushaw Jazz Festival. Jazz Lounge. Saturday Night - August 26

(Review by Steve T/Photo courtesy of Brian Ebbatson from a previous gig.)
A few remaining revellers survived a busy day to collapse into the luxurious furniture of the Jazz Lounge. Lord Paul [Edis] led the jam session band of Mick Shoulder on bass and Russ Morgan on drums, playing a couple whilst coaxing musicians to come up and play. Ben Lawrence and Francis Tulip heeded the call on piano and guitar respectively for All the Things You Are and Blue Monk, Tulip, betraying his busy day, pulling up a chair. 
Paul returned to welcome Graeme Wilson, showing stamina after two gigs the previous day and two sets earlier. They went through Just Friends and Love is Here to Stay. 
The two youngsters then returned for Have You Met Miss Jones? but declined the closer - Cherokee.
