Bone Idol Homecoming

(Preview by Russell)
Alexander Bone returns to the region in March to play two gigs with his Royal Academy of Music student friends at the Jazz Café, Newcastle and the Traveller’s Rest, Darlington.
The former pupil of Barnard Castle School won the inaugural BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year award in 2014 and went on to study at Chetham’s School of Music before his move to the capital to continue his studies.
The alto saxophonist made a guest appearance at last year’s Darlington Jazz Festival with Dean Stockdale and friends in the Quakerhouse pub. His appearance on BBC TV made a big impression on those who tuned in. Hearing him live is something else! Bone is due to appear on television again performing with the BBC Concert Orchestra playing the music from the soundtrack of Taxi Driver. The programme is scheduled to be broadcast at eight o’clock on 1st April. A better bet is to get along to the Jazz Café on Pink Lane on Friday 4th March to hear him for yourself. Suitably impressed, you can relive the experience the following evening at the Traveller’s Rest on West Auckland Road, Darlington. Bone is a Darlington lad so this gig is expected to sell-out in advance. To be sure of getting in book your ticket - £10 - by emailing: jazzblowers@gmail.com. The same should be said about the Newcastle date – if you want to be sure of getting in contact the Jazz Café. Telephone 0191 222 9882.

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.
