It's a Trad Day Today!

Today isn't just a Bank Holiday - if you're a Trad fan then it is the Bank Holiday!
Over on the north sde of the river we have two sessions stomping under the Jazz in the Afternoon banner.
Firstly we have the band of the same name strutting their stuff at their regular Monday lunchtime session at Cullercoats Club (1pm) then, just along the coast, the Vieux Carré Jazzmen are entertaining commuters and daytrippers on Tynemouth Station (1-4pm.).
In the evening we move south of the river to the Customs House in South Shields where West Yorkshire's top classic jazzmen - the Savannah Jazz Band  - take to the stage at 7.45pm.
The band, which features Roger Myerscough on clarinet (no stranger to this area) have a pedigree too lengthy to list here so I suggest a visit to their website to discover what's in store for you tonight!.

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.
