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)

CD Review: Postmodern Jukebox - The New Classics

An essential item for those who caught the phenomenon that is Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox on their recent UK tour which ended at Southend on March 14, calling in at Sage Gateshead on February 18 with the bonus of an impromptu apres show jam at the Prohibiton Bar which, even at this early date, is fast becoming the stuff of legend. In 10 years time, I guarantee there will be at least several hundred northeasterners who will swear they were present at the tiny Pro Bar on that memorable evening!
However, if you were at neither concert nor jam in person or in your dreams then this disc is no longer an essential - it is now an absolute must!
