Rae Brothers New Orleans Jazz Band with guest Sammy Rimington @ Gateshead Fell Friday Nov. 20

Dave Rae bjo, Mac Rae kit, Chris Smith bass, Jim Blenkin tbn, Peter Wright tpt, Eric Brooks, piano, Sammy Rimington clt/alto This was a very well attended session and a very enjoyable one. The Rae Brothers play a gentle, infectious brand of New Orleans jazz which has a certain rhythmic lilt that draws you in from the first number. It’s not hard to see why they are so popular at jazz clubs and festivals around the UK and abroad. They are also very popular monthly regulars at The Fell. For this session, they were joined by Sammy Rimington, a star of the New Orleans circuit who came to the fore with Ken Colyer’s famous band back in 1960 when he was only 17 years old. He was with that band about 5 years. Since then Sammy has worked with Chris Barber, Capt John Handy, Kid Thomas and a host of internationally known old style players both in Europe and the States. He is a very fluent player both on clarinet and alto with an intuitive sense of drama, rhythm and the building of a solo. His unique ‘feel’ for the music shines through and his playing was a delight that was well appreciated by the large audience. The repertoire was standard traditional fare – When You Wore a Tulip, Bugle Boy March, I Get the Blues When it Rains, The Other Line (Bourbon Street Parade), etc. All in all a grand evening and everyone went home happy. What more can you want? All credit to Ron & Joyce Pollard, Lance Cousins and the helpers at this club who have done a fantastic job in successfully keeping it going. It is one of the best traditional jazz clubs in the UK and right on our doorstep. The late Ray Brown, who started it off, would be very proud.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
