Bebop Spoken There

Whitney Shay: 'A few years back, I did a gig at an Asian grocery store next to the frozen food section. It was the opening of their bakery. It was a jazz gig and I sang jazz standards next to the frozen fish!'' - (Blues Matters! June/July 2020)

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)

Savill @ the Saville

Hi folks: just a reminder of next Friday's concert - top jazz-blogger and frequent Exchange attendee Lance Liddle tells me that trumpeter Dave Savill, who plays with Mike Lovell's excellent seven-piece band, played with the Newcastle Big Band on two of their overseas tours, and so will be making a return, spiritually speaking at least, to old stomping grounds when he plays here on January 8th. Hope you all can make it - it's a great band, and Jazz @ The Exchange needs your support! Details follow: Jazz @ The Exchange, Saville Exchange, corner Saville & Howard Streets, North Shields, NE30 1SEConcert starts at 8.00pm. Admission £11/Concessions £10/Students £5. Book on 0191 642 7093, or pay at door Friday, January 8th: Mike Lovell’s Six-In-A-Bar Plus One .
Trombonist Mike Lovell leads his popular traditional jazz band from the North West in its first excursion this side of the Pennines. Besides Mike, the band comprises the Temperance Seven’s Willy Entwistle on clarinet and saxes, the great vocalist Rosie Harrison, who also plays soprano sax, Dave Savill on trumpet - he was with the Midnight Follies Orchestra, George Chisholm and Terry Lightfoot - Chris Howse on banjo, guitar and Bing-style vocals and Colin Turner on bass sax and tuba (the two of them also form half of the well-known Harmony Hounds), plus Pete Eddowes on drums and washboard.
Their repertoire is an interesting mix of jazz standards (Once In A While, Cake Waking Babies, Whistling Rufus, At The Jazz Band Ball) and some far-from-common material - what price “Mustapha The Dancing Camel” or “Midnight, The Stars And You”? - all presented in a lively and entertaining manner and with the vocals by Rosie and Chris providing a real bonus.
A good way to start a Happy Jazz New Year!
Mike Durham.
