Jazz Party this Sunday (Dec. 20) @ The Globe Jazz Bar.

Why is there an image of Dick Whittington? Because this Sunday, December 20, the musicians from the Theatre Royal (and some of the cast and backstage staff) are coming to the Globe for a let-your-hair-down, after-show party.
When they came last year it was an amazing night of smoking jazz, funky grooves, dirty dancing and hard drinking.
The band will be led by Damian Cook, past winner of BBC Big Band Soloist of the Year, who in addition to his serious jazz credentials, has toured with top R&B acts such as the Temptations, The Four Tops, & Martha Reeves & The Vandellas.
The fun starts at 9pm. It's just £5 to get in (and much harder to get out).
Graham Justin – Trumpet; Damian Cook – Sax; Stuart Davies – Guitar; Greg Arrowsmith – Keys; Joe Britton – Bass; Ollie Boorman – Drums

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.
