Bebop Spoken There

Gil Goldstein: "The first three days I was in Florida, I heard Jaco Pastorius play at a club in Fort Lauderdale, and then I heard Pat [Metheny] play in a class on jazz composition. My whole experience of the world changed in those three days." - (DownBeat, March 2020).

South Shields Customs

That fine organisation, the Customs House Big Band, are holding an open rehearsal at the New Crown Hotel on Tuesday 3rd February. Admission is free and gives listeners the opportunity to hear the band, warts and all, for nowt! Sounds like good value.
My informant, Miles Watson, tells me the band are doing two nights at the Customs House in March (24th & 25th) by which time the warts hopefully will have been dispensed with. There will, of course, be a break of approximately 24 hours between the two concerts to enable band and audience to eat, sleep and whatever. The guest artist will not be Robbie Williams or Brian Bennett. It will however, be Ruth Lambert. Her womanly warblings are ever welcome.
