Other music includes outstanding contemporary folk duo, Freya Rae and Louis Bingham, on Saturday 23 January and mod/ska band The Style Selektors on Saturday 30 January.
Our monthly jam sessions, Am Jam and More Jam, continue on the second and fourth Sundays of each month, 3-6pm and a new (very old) weekly session, Take it to the Bridge, begins on Wednesday 6 January at 8pm.

  1. And I would add that the monthly Folk/Jazz Thursday open mike evening has now morphed into Folk/Acoustic, but of course jazzers are still welcome, as well as musicians of all kinds and creeds. First Thursday of each month at the Globe 8pm.

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.
