Bebop Spoken There

Brian Dee: "I feel my generation had one advantage over today's players in that we were not musically educated in colleges, so we all sounded different. I could tell who it was just by the sound." - (Jazz Rag, Summer 2020).

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.
