Saturday Night @ The Jazz Café

The number 22 bus took me from the Globe to the Jazz Café. I had two reasons to call in, the second one was to catch the final moments of this Saturday's duo set. It was so good I almost forgot the first reason for calling which could have been embarrassing if I had!
Giles Strong and Mick Shoulder on guitars - yes Mick using six strings instead of four! As a bonus we had Ray Burns on harmonica and Paul Edis on clarinet! In musical terms - a bonus worthy of Barclays or Thomas Cook!

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.
