Gigs/CDs of the Month - June

Gigs of the Month
Time & Place - Paul Edis Quartet w. Jo Harrop & Vasilis Xenopoulos @ Sage Gateshead.
Strictly Smokin'Big Band @ Hoochie Coochie.
Emma Fisk's Hot Club du Nord @ Sage Gateshead.
Vasilis Xenopoulos w. Paul Edis Trio @ Ushaw College.

CDs of the Month.
Tubby Hayes Quartet - Grits, Beans and Greens.
Scott Hamilton Quartet - Danish Ballads and More.
Eyal Vilner Big Band - Swing Out.
Judy Wexler - Crowded Heart.

My personal choices and do not reflect the opinions of our other reviewers. The Tubby Hayes album isn't released until later this month but I was so excited after listening I couldn't wait till then!

Likewise, the Judy Wexler disc came out in April but somehow got buried beneath the avalanche hence the delay but well worth waiting for.

There were many more gigs and CDs that just missed the cut - it's been a good month.
Lance.
