Jazz North East is proud to be hosting the launch of the debut CD, 'The Spy', from the Lindsay Hannon Plus.

Since its formation in 2012 the quartet has become one of the most enjoyable vocal-led outfits on the North East scene, going from strength to strength as their repertoire expanded and the musicians locked into the collective groove. The leader herself is equally at home with raucous barrel-house blues and thoughtful, spacious ballads, mixing up the genres with great skill and creating an unfailingly electric atmosphere. Bassist John Pope, who has been with the group since the start, plays a key part in shaping the instrumental approach, while newer members James Harrison and Tom Chapman are consistently impressive both in their ensemble work and when soloing.

The debut album was recorded live at the Bridge Hotel, and those of us who were there have been waiting impatiently to be reminded of a superb night's music. Now the wait is over, and we can look forward to another great live performance, with the bonus of a disc to take home at the end!
