Bebop Spoken There

Dick Katz: "Carmen [McRae] would say some pretty caustic things but, so what? There aren't any people who don't talk caustically to each other at some time unless they're Mother Teresa." - (Lesley Gourse: Carmen McRae Miss Jazz - Billboard Books 2001, 2020)

Francis Tulip Quintet featuring Xhosa Cole @ the Bridge Hotel, Newcastle, - August 25

Xhosa Cole (tenor sax); Francis Tulip (guitar);  Ben Lawrence (keys); Shivraj Singh (double bass); Matthew Holmes (drums).

Due to a variety of circumstances we were unable to provide a blow by blow account of this JNE gig but, it would appear to have been comparable with the band's gig, albeit with a slight change of personnel, the day previous at Ushaw. If this was indeed the case then it must have been an excellent session.
Fortunately, although there is no written review we do, thanks to Ken Drew, have a pictorial record of the event with some atmospheric shots.

To view, check out this link to Ken's photos.
