NCRO News


A New Century appearance is rather like waiting for a bus…  nothing for ages, then three come along at once!
On Saturday 1st September, we have the honour of opening Darlington New Orleans Jazz Club's new venue, the Studio at the Dolphin Centre, right in the centre of town after many successful years at the Arts Centre's Garden Bar.
The full address is the Dolphin Centre, Horse Market, Darlington DL1 5RP, and there is a lift to the Studio on the first floor which also has adjacent food and bar facilities.  Pay & display parking is available to the side and rear of the Town Hall.
The show starts at 12.30pm, and tickets (£8.50) are available in advance from the Dolphin Centre on 01325 388406 or on the door.  Please come along and give the club a good start in its new home.

Then on Saturday 22 September, we're at the Trinity Centre on Gosforth High Street, Newcastle upon Tyne NE3 4AG, as.   Our concert starts at 7.30pm, and tickets (£10) are available in advance on 0191 285 6130 or on the door.
Please click on www.trinitygosforth.org.uk/ourevents/jazz for further information about their excellent monthly series of jazz presentations.
Our final September appearance promises to be rather special… as part of the Balboa Gathering Vintage Swing Dance Festival, come along on Saturday 29 September and watch the band with balboa swing dancers from around the world!
If you're unsure what balboa is, click this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Imf35_aOcP0.  There's no obligation to dance, as seating is provided, and tickets (£10) are available from Navella on 07961 579988 ornavella@lovebalboa.com.
This is a new venue for us, the Beacon, Westgate Road, Newcastle upon Tyne NE4 9PQ, an iconic new building (so I'm told) on the site of the old fire station at the Wingrove Road junction, not far from the General Hospital.  Showtime at 9pm.
I hope you can join us at one or more of these events, and support live music (and dance!)
Phil Rutherford
The New Century Ragtime Orchestra
This twelve-piece orchestra plays music from the dawn of Ragtime in the 1890’s through to the early Swing Era of the 1930’s.
Lovingly recreated from the original sheet music and painstakingly scored for full ensemble, we perform not only ragtime composers such as Scott Joplin but also the classic jazz and hot dance music of the 1920’s, and the early swing of Duke Ellington.

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.
