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).

Blank Taped - April 17


Triptych: Paul Edis (piano, keyboards, clarinet, flute); Paul Susans (double bass, bass guitar); Rob Walker (drums, percussion, keyboards) + Lisa Delarny (visuals)
(Review by Russell)

Triptych booked two nights at Blank Studios to record material for a forthcoming CD release and, what's more, thought it a good idea to do so in front of an audience. This second evening on Warwick Street just east of Newcastle city centre drew a supportive crowd there to listen to the trio and, as a bonus, observe artist Lisa Delarny as she responded to the music creating real-time visuals projected onto a screen. 


Mobile phones switched off, Paul Edis, Paul Susans and Rob Walker assumed their positions amongst a labyrinth of cables and state of the art microphones to perform three extended compositions. Applause, should the audience feel so inclined, would be welcomed and, with producer Adam Sinclair orchestrating the technical wizardry in an adjacent room, Triptych - and Delarny using an iPad - went to work.

For an hour or more nobody coughed, sneezed or excused themselves to visit the bathroom, engrossed in the music-making process. Pianist Edis frequently made eye contact with bandmates Paul Susans and Rob Walker, hitting their cues, a smile, a nod, things appeared to be going well. Blank's studio bods were in attendance and they seemed to enjoy the 'gig' every bit as much as Triptych's audience. 

Mellis-March: Callum Mellis (flugelhorn); Brent March (guitar, laptop)

Earlier we were treated to a support set by Lambton Big Band MD Callum Mellis and guitarist Brent March. The duo played three numbers - two standards and an original composition - in a half hour set which featured Mellis playing flugelhorn on each, seated alongside March playing an Epiphone and manipulating sound through a laptop. 
     
So, two nights, a job well done, we await the fruits of Triptych's labours...a first CD!
