A Lighter Shade of Pink

There seems to be some confusion at present regarding the Pink Lane Jazz Co-op and the Jazz Café in Pink Lane.
I’ve been asked to point out that these are two separate organisations and the slight connection is tenuous to say the least.
Basically the Pink Lane Jazz Co-op is planning on buying, through a share issue, the Globe Pub in Railway St and developing it as a jazz venue.
The Jazz Café, a long established jazz haunt recently refurbished following the death of the previous incumbent Keith Crombie, will continue to promote jazz events in the Pink Lane venue and will not be moving to Railway St.
The Pink Lane Jazz Co-op are at present running monthly Friday night sessions at the Jazz Café.
The Jazz Café has been chosen as the Late Night Club for this year’s GIJF and the upstairs venue will be ready for the sessions which start on Friday (April 4) with the Alan Law Trio A.K.A. ALT
Prospective investors in the share issue are advised to contact the Pink Lane Jazz Co-op and not the Jazz Café in Pink Lane.
So now you know and may clarity prevail.
Oh yes - Sage Gateshead also has a Jazz Café session on the concourse tonight (March 28) featuring Anth Purdy in a solo guitar recital... Nothing to do with the other two!

Was very useful reminder. You were right, it is very confusing.

Nicely put - but they do LOOK rather similar to an uninformed passer-by

Your shades of pink have clarified this issue for me Lance!

Submissions for review

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 them all 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.

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.
