Customs House Jazz

Next week sees some jazz happenings at the Customs House, South Shields and some jazz not happening at the Customs House, South Shields.
First the good news.
On Monday (August 25) the very stomp-worthy Savannah Jazz Band strut their stuff. Lovers of New Orleans style jazz will not want to miss this one! 7.45pm - £15.
Then on Thursday (August 28) there is a double treat in store. Ruth Lambert serenades the diners with a lunchtime special. Regarded as one of the top jazz singers in and beyond the area Ruth's trio will enhance any menu. 1pm. £12.50 inc. light lunch.
In the evening, long before the sun goes down, the Big Chris Barber Band play a mix that runs from New Orleans to Harlem with some Ellington and Bechet thrown in alongside the classics associated with the legendary trombonist. 7.45pm £20.
Now the bad news.
Friday's concert by YolanDa Brown will not take place on Friday August 29. Instead the popular saxist has, I'm told, been rescheduled to appear in March 2015.

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.
