International Jazz Day @ The Globe

Today is International Jazz Day and it's being celebrated in just about every civilised country in the world including, of course, the UK.
Needless to say, The Newcastle Jazz Coop are proud to be the only north east organisation to be participating and, as such, the only jazz venue in the area to be publicly recognising this day.
Tonight, at the Jazz Coop's home - the Globe Jazz Bar, 11 Railway St., Newcastle NE4 7AD the Jazz Coop show their support of the occasion by presenting the CUSTOMS HOUSE BIG BAND with top vocalist RUTH LAMBERT in the downstairs bar. Doors open at 7.15pm - admission £7.50.
Later, upstairs, there's a jam session starting circa 9.30pm with all musicians invited and it's free.
There's also a disco downstairs after the CHBB set is finished.
By coincidence, tonight is also the first anniversary of the Jazz Coop buying The Globe - setting up the UK's first music venue co-op - so there is plenty to celebrate!

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.
