Watson, Walker and Edis - Lunchtime gig at the Lit and Phil.

This trio first performed a one-off set as part of the ‘Jazzathon’ at the Lit and Phil in 2011 to great acclaim, and indeed it was later voted ‘best gig of the year’ by local jazz blog Bebop Spoken Here.
All three musicians were keen to continue collaborating and to explore the many possibilities of this new ‘baseless-trio’.
With an ever expanding portfolio of compositions, an abundance of technique, innate sensitivity and interaction, the trio draw upon a wealth of experience and influences to perform original and moving music with improvisation and expression at its heart.
Paul Edis – Piano
Rob Walker – Drums
Lewis Watson – Saxophone
Friday June 8. Literary and Philosophical Society, Westgate Rd., Newcastle. 1:10pm-2:00pm. £5/£3.

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.
