Bebop Spoken There

Alan Barnes: "Normally you can cobble a set together with five guys on the back of an envelope over the first pint and it's just fine. Livestreaming isn't like that." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

A Vieux Carre Vignette @ The Corner House. July 14th

Brian Bennett (banjo), Brian Sibbald (double bass), Fred Thompson (drums), Barry Soulsby (clarinet), Peter Wright (trumpet), Laurence McBriarty (trombone). Having been detained elsewhere (not, I hasten to add, at Byker cop shop), I arrived at the Corner House in the company of Mr.P.Bream, the north east's free jazz/improv supremo, mover and shaker, Mr.Fixit blah, blah, to catch the last thirty minutes of the Vieux Carre's regular Monday night gig. The regular sextet was in full flow, restored to the function room after last week's one-off performance in the main bar. The highlight of the half hour was Ellington's 'Creole Love Call'; tight ensemble work and exquisite frontline interplay courtesy of Messers.Soulsby, Wright and McBriarty. More, much more, next week. Russell PS. I think Mr.Bream was reasonably impressed!
