Jazz at the Pizza Express (Newcastle)

Jazz at the Pizza Express
Jazz at the Pizza Express, Dean Street. You’re in the north east, you’re thinking that’s a long way to go for a pizza. Think again! The Pizza Express, Dean Street, Newcastle has decided to give jazz a try. The pizzeria put on a regular jazz gig a few years ago in conjunction with the then fledgling Jazz Coop but it didn’t really take off. Let’s hope this new venture will enjoy greater longevity.
The plan is to establish a regular night in the upstairs room. The first gig will be on Friday October 23. Doors open at seven o’clock, with the band on stage at 8pm.. The good news is they’ve lined-up some tasty gigs to complement the menu; starting with the Matt Jacobs Trio. Jacobs is the pianist with the Durham University Big Band. The trio can play, make no mistake about it.
Programme
Friday Oct. 23 - Matt Jacobs Trio. Free.
Wednesday Nov. 11 - Mo Scott Trio. Free.
Wednesday Nov. 18 - Durham University Big Band - £5.
Monday Nov. 30 - Pocket Jazz Orchestra. Free.

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.
