Bebop Spoken There

Ed Palermo: "[Frank] Zappa's humor was very rarely self-deprecating, and mine is almost always self-deprecating. The beauty of it is that no one gets hurt." - (DownBeat February, 2021)

Preview: Tiptoe @ Gosforth Civic Theatre - Oct. 11

Alice Higgins vocals / Will Blackstone trumpet / Conall Mulvenna guitar / Roz MacDonald double bass. 
If you haven't got tickets for Caro Emerald at Sage Gateshead then look no further than Gosforth Civic Theatre on Thursday. It looks good.
Tiptoe, one of the latest round of Jazz Northern Line supported acts promise to be one of the more accessible bands on the rota if, going by their YouTube samples, is a fair assessment of what they're all about.
I'm sure it is. Great voice, melodic trumpet, a guitarist who hasn't overdosed on Metheny and a bass player who can Dance with Dolphins. 
The varied repertoire covers material from Ella F to Michael J as well as some original material of their own.
See you there.
Lance.
Tiptoe - Gosforth Civic Theatre, Regent Farm Road, Gosforth, Newcastle NE3 3HD. Tel: 0191 284 3700. 7:30pm. £7.00. Gosforth Jazz Club.
