Max Roach Poster info wanted.

Another poster from the archives of the late Chris Yates - this time it's the Max Roach Quartet.
However, I have neither date nor venue and it isn't a gig I remember so I'm hoping that someone out there can supply more details.

Chris Yates' book 'Blue Horizons' gives the year as 1989 but nothing more.

According to the Newcastle University Courier (link below), the concert took place at Newcastle Playhouse on October 5, 1989, at 7:30pm. Max started the show with "The Drum Also Waltzes" and closed it with his customary solo "Mr Hi-Hat" encore. Other tunes on the set list included "Round Midnight," "It's Time," "My Little Suede Shoes," and "Everything I Have Is Yours" (with a long a cappella solo by Odean Pope).

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.
