Bebop Spoken There

John McLaughlin: "I had just recently hooked up with Billy Cobham on the Jack Johnson album with Miles. And I loved the way Billy played. We got really tight after that. So he was the first guy I called [when I formed Mahavishnu Orchestra)." - (JazzTimes July/August 2021)

The Things They Say!

Remembering Chris

This weekend sees two events of major importance for local jazz enthusiasts.
On Sunday afternoon (1:00pm - 6:00pm) at the Corner House, Heaton, the long awaited tribute to the late Chris Yates - Remembering Chris - takes place.
No need to remind you of Chris' importance on the local jazz scene - as Secretary of Jazz North East for almost 40 years Chris was a familiar figure to both audience and player.
That life is being celebrated with a concert featuring a host of names both local and international. The musicians are giving there services free with the proceeds going to charities of Chris' choice - Amnesty International, UNICEF and the National Jazz Archive.
Details of the afternoon are as follows:
1.00pm: ALAN GLEN TRIO.
1.40pm: PAUL EDIS SEXTET.
2.20pm: STEVE WATERMAN, NEIL HARLAND,
ADAM SINCLAIR, ROLY VEITCH.
3.00pm: ALAN BARNES, GRAHAM HARDY, PAUL EDIS,
MICK SHOULDER, DAVID CARNEGIE.
3.40pm: GRAEME WILSON, ROLY VEITCH, NEIL HARLAND, SCOTT ADAIR.
4.20pm: TIM GARLAND, ANDY CHAMPION, ADRIAN TILBROOK.
5.00pm: ALAN BARNES, TIM GARLAND, STEVE WATERMAN,
PAUL EDIS, ANDY CHAMPION, ADRIAN TILBROOK.
Tickets £10.00 from J G Windows | 0191 232 1356 | or from the Corner House during pub hours.
Truly a musical gourmet's menu.
Today, Friday July 23, at the Literary & Philosophical Society, 23 Westgate Rd., Newcastle, the official book launch of Chris Yates' memoirs - Blue Horizons - takes place.
The event is free and takes the form of a talk by former Jazz North East committee member Alan Twelftree.
Alan had a long association with Jazz North East and the Newcastle Jazz Festivals in the 1970s. He also broadcast on Radio Newcastle and Metro Radio. His own memories should provide a fitting companion to Blue Horizons.
