Jack Bruce Tribute.

Over a year since their last appearance in the UK, T-A-B return to Newcastle for what will be their only UK appearance this year, paying tribute to Jack Bruce, the legendary bass player/vocalist who passed away this month. The concert, which will take place at The Three Tuns (Sheriff's Hill, Gateshead) on Thursday 13th November, will feature music from Cream, through Jack's solo albums (including the highly regarded Songs For A Tailor), and collaborations with other groundbreaking musicians.

Anyone who caught last years gigs or their support slot with Ginger Baker's Jazz Confusion at the Cluny will want to see their usual risk filled take on some of Jack Bruce's finest moments - the band featuring Tom Atkinson on guitar, Jimmy Giro on bass, and Jeff Armstrong on drums - plus guests.
Tickets are £3, reserved via jackbrucetribute@gmail.com - doors open 9pm.

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.
