Horns a Plenty Today

As the reader will note from the above listings today is one of those spoilt for choice days! There's three gigs in Gateshead alone at venues but a ff riff apart! (Sage Gateshead, Gateshead Old Town Hall, Central Bar).
Travel one Metro stop to Central Station and you've got another (Jazz Café), one more to Monument (Hoochie Coochie) or three more to West Jesmond (British Legion).
My personal choice is for Sage Gateshead and the Kings of Swing but it could easily have been any of the others or even an afternoon trip down to Durham (Gala Theatre) or a Rendezvous at the Black Horse, Monkseaton. Or, if it's a balmy evening, a run up to Etal or Alnwick!
We've never had it so good, or is it too much of a good thing?

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.
