Bebop Spoken There

Val Wilmer: "The festival [New York Musicians Festival], an impressive exercise in African-American self-reliance, had come about after the promoter George Wein had moved his annual Newport Jazz Festival to New York the previous year [1972], and paid scant attention to the avant garde." - (Wire June 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

Dutch Treat

If your tastes run to something more modern (or vice versa) than 1920s dance music then, on the same day at the same time as the tea dancers are turkey trotting on the Terrace at Fenwicks, you may (and I did say may) prefer to Charleston on down the Metro to South Shields for ...
THE OLD FASHIONERS Sunday 28th September at 12 noon AT THE CUSTOMS HOUSE, SOUTH SHIELDS The Old Fashioners were formed in 1974, and today’s line up (a good mix of youth and experience) makes them one of Holland’s hottest bands. They play a mixture of jazz standards, ragtime, New Orleans classics, gospel numbers, pop tunes and of course the blues, in a style they very correctly describe as “energetic trad jazz”, because these chaps certainly give their all at each performance. Reminiscent at times of the great days of the Acker Bilk and Chris Barber bands - listen for The Martinique and Let The Light From The Lighthouse Shine On Me - but with a sound all of their own, the Old Fashioners will give you a Sunday lunchtime to remember (and the Customs House’s Green Room Bar & Bistro is open until 3.00pm for a delicious post-concert lunch – but you will need to make a reservation on 0191 427 3737). TICKETS £5 THE CUSTOMS HOUSE, MILL DAM SOUTH SHIELDS, NE 33 1ES BOX OFFICE (0191) 454 1234
