Rendezvous Jazz @ The Black Horse, Monkseaton.

Maureen Hall (Vocals); Barry Soulsby (Clar.), Don Fairly (Tromb..), George Davidson (Drums/Vocals), and Roy (Keyboard & Bass Pedals) - Joined by special guests John Minnion (Tpt) Paul Bacon (Drums), Liz Bacon (Clar.) Also in the picture GORDON SOLOMON (Trombone [Retired])

What a jam session this was!!! A swinging gig with endless changes in line up and styles. Every time I looked up someone else had arrived on stage. George sang by his self while Paul played the drums for part of the second set.  Liz and Barry did two Clarinet duos and Peter Wright look alike John Minnion completed the full front line presentation. Barry made an excellent job of the Clinton Ford number The Old Bazaar in Cairo. Nice to see so many old friends in jazz including Gordon Solomon (Solly) who said he really enjoyed the gig
All strength to Maureen for putting together such a great afternoon of jazz & the chips with the corned beef and onion toasties weren't bad either!

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.
