Leeds Lord Mayor Gets Jazzy!

The Lord Mayor, Cllr Jane Dowson will be a guest at the tenth anniversary Jazz Party held this Sunday afternoon 10 December at Seven Arts Chapel Allerton Leeds.
It’s 10 years since voluntary jazz promoters Seven Jazz started at Seven Arts who last year picked up the prestigious UK Parliamentary Jazz award in 2016 for best UK jazz club and this will be the last concert under the club’s old name.
We’ll be announcing some exciting news for 2018 – there is to be a new six-day Jazzleeds festival (July 20-25th 2018) at city centre venues including the Wardrobe, the College of Music and Millennium Square and featuring jazz stars like Soweto Kinch and Greg Abate and including a jazz play by Leeds author Chris Nickson and a celebration of the music of Duke Ellington marking 60 years since his famous visit to Leeds in 1958.
We’ll also be announcing the setting up of JazzLeeds, a new charitable organisation to support the development of jazz in the city in the future and provide a lasting legacy for the superb jazz history of Leeds.
This special concert will feature two of the young bands from the city that make Leeds the jazz capital of the North of England – with top jazz vocalist Kate Peters and her septet and the award-winning Tom Sharp Jazz Orchestra.
The concert on Sunday at Seven Arts will also include a “Jazz Raffle”, the proceeds of which will go to the Lord Mayor’s charity appeal – Candlelighters, the children’s cancer charity based in Leeds who support families facing children’s cancer across Yorkshire.
JazzLeeds tenth anniversary jazz party is at Seven Arts Sunday afternoon 10th December 1.30-5pm.

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.
