Bebop Spoken There

Brian Dee: "I feel my generation had one advantage over today's players in that we were not musically educated in colleges, so we all sounded different. I could tell who it was just by the sound." - (Jazz Rag, Summer 2020).

LED BIB or LEAD BALLOON?

It seems as though my support for gigs is rather like the Today Programme's racing tips - the kiss of death!

So, my enthusiasm for tomorrow night's Led Bib gig at the Cluny hasn't prevented its cancellation as a consequence of extremely poor advance ticket sales - this despite the fact that the band got some decent exposure from their recent Mercury Prize shortlisting. Hardened jazz promoters, faced with similar poor advance sales, have long since learned to hold their nerve and hope for a big walk up audience on the night, but the Cluny management lack that combination of deluded optimism and suicidal tendencies, and decided to pull the plug.

Still, the one (small) consolation is that local jazz fans will have saved a few quid, and therefore can better afford to come to the week's other outstanding gigs - World Sanguine Report at the Cluny on Tuesday, and the Profound Sound Trio at Gateshead Old Town Hall on Thursday.

Oh dear - I hope I haven't put the hex on them!
