Sunday at the Jazz Café.

Hello all, after yet more discussions a plan is coming together.

Firstly Bands will start at 2pm
Do NOT bring instruments other than your horns as all will be provided.
The audio of the day will be recorded. (distribution possible in time)
The family have requested NO photographs. Our memory’s can be our photos. 
There will be a collection to go towards assisting his sister Janet with the cost of the wake. (Suggested donation 5) you will get a lot of music for that.
I will have my piano and amp upstairs (in the chill out space) with microphone so anyone can use quietly and any of the comedy or poetry lot can do there thing.
We will get things going downstairs, and then move out of the way and let who ever take turns I reckon we can calmly organise that between ourselves, on the day. Just let myself or, Mark Robertson know and people can pick and choose their line up.
The day will conclude with firstly Gypsy Dave smith doing some of his wonderful solo Blues and the Grand finale will be The Safe Sextet.
It will be a great day with one major factor missing but please come along and celebrate the life of Newcastle finest Jazz Man, and our dear dear friend Keith Crombie 
Thanks see you Sunday 6th @ 2pm

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.

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to all of them other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.
