RIP Judith (Judy) Moore

The funeral arrangements have been finalised for Judith Moore who passed away on May 9. Judith loved music and in her younger days was a regular at such north east venues as the New Orleans Club, the Club Agogo, the Downbeat, the Corner House and, in later years, Hoochie Coochie and the Jazz Café. Sadly, failing health meant Judith had been absent from the scene in recent months but she will be remembered and deeply missed by all who knew her.
May Judith Rest In Peace
Lance.
The funeral is on Thursday, May 26 - 10:30am at Saltwell Crematorium, Gateshead. Chronicle/Journal notice.

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.
