Tonight at Gateshead Old Town Hall - Reincarnation of a Love Bird

Tonights concert at Gateshead Old Town Hall promises to be one of those unmissable ones. Indeed anything Mingus related has to be something special and Arnie Somogyi's SCENES IN THE CITY is no exception.
With a stellar line-up comprising Alan Barnes, Karen Sharp (saxes), Jeremy Price (tmb), Mark Edwards (pno), Arnie Somogyi (bs) and Clark Tracey (dms) you know the sparks are going to fly.
Mingus' music at times created melodic textures as rich and as full as Ellington's as well as futuristic strides into the unknown.
You've just got to be there in fact you'd better git it in your soul as well as on your agenda for this evening.

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.
