As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Elkie Brooks @ Sage Gateshead - March 8 - Take 1

Just re-living last night's fantastic concert at Sage Gateshead by Elkie Brooks. Ann Alex's review is to follow so regard this as the prologue.
I first saw Elkie at Sunderland Empire nearly 40 years ago and I couldn't believe that the voice is still as good now as it was then - maybe even better!
A class act, a super band and a threatened punch-up between our Row K neighbours and the row in front.
What better for a night out?
Over to you Ann...
