Places still available for Play Jazz! workshop at the Gateshead International Jazz Festival

There are a few places left for our Play Jazz! workshop at the Gateshead International Jazz Festival this coming weekend.
This special workshop will be led by Joakim Milder the artistic director of the Norrbotten Big Band, supported by our own tutors Judith Thompson, Dean Stockdale and Stuart Finden.
Joakim Milder is a highly regarded jazz educator. He says he aims to create music that is 'less predictable and proper'.
The workshop runs from 2pm to 6pm on Saturday 5 April downstairs in the Music Education Centre at the Sage.  Tickets cost £25 (or £22 for members of Pink Lane Jazz Co-op).
You can book online
or by phone 0191 443 4661.

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.
