An Ear to the Ground

Rumour has it that trumpet man Alan Smith has parted company with the Maine Street Jazzmen.
Also, the whisper is that their Wednesday night residency at Hebburn's Iona Club ends this month.
Gershwin's Restaurant has closed and Tavistock Italia have adopted a 'no jazz' policy.
This means that, apart from Fenwicks' Tivoli Restaurant's short season of Sunday lunchtime trio sessions and Saturday night's gig at the Jazz Café, there are no regular Saturday/Sunday jazz on the Tyne venues. Perhaps some enterprising entrepeneur will step in. Otherwise, it means a trip to Teeside.
Actually, that's not a bad idea for next Sunday lunchtime (23rd Nov) - VOTNJO at Stockton's Georgian Theatre.
Tuesday (7.00 pm) Guy Barker leads the London Jazz Orchestra in concert on Radio 3.
