Bebop Spoken There

Tina May: "It's a broad umbrella, jazz, but to me there has to be improvisation. If that's not there, to me, it's not really jazz." - (Jazzwise March 2021)

Successful Book Launch @ The Lit & Phil

A packed Lit & Phil remembered Chris Yates at the posthumous launch of his book - Blue Horizons.
The book, which relates the author's love affair with jazz in both his native Hull and his adopted Newcastle, is a nice easy read for anyone interested in jazz from provincial to world level.
Despite having his words read by an understudy, Alan Twelftree - unable to be present because of family illness - did the book and the author justice.
Lance.
PS: Further tributes to Chris Yates will be paid at Sunday Afternoon's Remembering Chris concert at the Corner House, Heaton.

Very modestly you don't mention you were the understudy Lance. Well you did Chris and Alan proud with a sincerely delivered tribute to Chris the person, his devotion to jazz and his unique book which among other things gives such a vivid picture of jazz activity on our home patch.
