The Eales' Report from BATH & Opus 4

BSH's southern (that's County Durham) correspondent Tony Eales filed an enthusiastic report of Friday's events way down south. A lunchtime session in the first-floor cafe at Bishop Auckland Town Hall went down well with a sizeable crowd there to hear super saxist/flautist Sue Ferris* working in trio format with sidekicks Paul Edis, piano, and ace bassman Neil Harland. 


Eales' evening engagement at the Traveller's Rest proved to be a worthwhile affair every which way. The Darlington roadhouse pub in Cockerton, home to Opus 4 Jazz Club, attracted a large, enthusiastic audience for the visit of trombonist Eddie Bellis' classy West Coast outfit Lickety Split. Our County Durham man confirmed that the band's recently recruited trumpeter, Callum Mellis, impressed many of Opus 4's longtime supporters.

Ferris can be heard again, this time leading her quintet, on Friday lunchtime (Nov 23) at the Gala Theatre in Durham.
