Co-op's Dividends (Musically speaking)

The Jazz Co-op, based at The Globe pub, Newcastle languishes in the shadow of the Metro Arena. However, as the refurbishment gains momentum the languishing and the shadows are receding and, as befits its location on Railway Street, it's full steam ahead with some ambitious programming.
This includes an appearance by the Clark Tracey Quintet on Saturday November 1 (plus afternoon drum workshop by CT) and a mouthwatering gig by American saxist Benn Clatworthy in the company of fellow American Cecilia Coleman on piano with Brits Simon Thorpe and Matt Home on bass and drums respectively. This latter gig is on Thursday November 20.
More details of these and other happenings can be found on the Co-op's website.

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.
