This Thursday @ the Black Swan

Gerry Richardson's Big Idea is a dynamic, nine-piece Hammond organ- based band exploring the jazz organ genre to the max! Soul, Gospel, Funk, Swing and Samba are all part of the mix. Add to that some kicking original tunes, many written as tributes to the legendary jazz and soul musicians who have inspired Gerry throughout his career and you get an unbeatable format for a great nights' music.
The band’s previous gig – in June – was so busy that we’re moving them next door to the larger – and fully accessible – Black Swan Bar and Venue. Coach parties catered for!
Thursday September 22 8.00pm (Bar 7pm / Doors to music room 7.30pm) – Gerry Richardson’s Big Idea. The Black Swan Bar & Venue, 69 Westgate Road, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 1SG. Tickets at door £6.00 adults ( £4.00 under 18s with an adult).
In the meantime, don't forget Tuesday's jam session in the Jazz Café - that's tomorrow (Sept. 20) 8pm and it's free!

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.
