Paris Blues - mes excuses pour ce soir

It's raining, I'm full of cold and feeling sad. 
Why?
I'm going to miss Emma Fisk and Hot Club du Nord at the Jazz Café tonight. I've been looking forward to this gig all week and the fates have decreed it is not to be.
Hopefully, there will be someone there to write about it and take pics because, an Emma gig is always deserving of being remembered for posterity - like, you know, "I was there that night".
Gig stomps off at 9pm so you've got time - and please give my fave fiddler mes excuses pour ce soir
Bon Nuit 
Lance.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
