Tall Ships Day 3

I think it may be four or more decades since I first heard the Mississippi Dreamboats when they had a residency in Tynemouth. I was sorry to see them give up their regular gig at The Bell and Bucket in North Sheilds a little while ago.  It was pleasing  to find them playing better than ever in Blyth today. Could not stop long as parking was difficult. 
Another guy taking snaps was non-other than Cliff Soden, bass player and professional photographer. Oliver Soden's son Cliff is back living in Blyth and  was at the gig on his cycle. A man in the style of Lance!! 
Cliff gave me a copy of the last CD he made when he lived in Germany:-
Review later and hopefully some pro pics from Cliff

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.
