Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

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)

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Jazz @ Pizza on the Square - LEEDS, October 30. TESSA SMITH QUARTET

I'm just getting in touch as, basically, we're trying to start up a Jazz evening at Pizza Express in Leeds (like they have down in London) and the first one is on the 30th of this month. If we can get lots of people there and show the venue that there is a market for it up here, then hopefully it'll become a monthly event.
However, in order to fill the 150 capacity restaurant, I need northern jazz fans to help.
The doors open at 6:30pm, and the band is on at 8:00pm - the idea being that you come in for your dinner and stay for the show. Entry is £10 (£8 for concessions) and booking available from 17th Oct.
To register your interest email tessasmithquartet@googlemail.com leaving name and phone number and I'll remind you nearer the time to buy a ticket.
The success of this really depends on ticket sales, so I'd really really appreciate the help of you guys up here!
Hope to see you all soon, and thanks in advance. It'll be a great night, I'm already really really really looking forward to it!
Tessa xx
PS: I'd also love to do a gig in Newcastle if anyone can suggest a suitable venue...
