Jacky Denton - Funeral Announcement

Jacky Denton's Funeral takes place at Gateshead Crematorium Saltwell Road South on Wednesday August 25 at 12 Noon*. The crem is accessible by bus or car from Durham Road, Low Fell. The 28a from Eldon Square or Gateshead Metro** passes the Crem gates as does the 29 from Gateshead although the 29 is a longer journey. The Humanist service will be followed by drinks and food at Holly Hill Sports and Social Club, Benson Tce., Felling. Please pass on the information to Jacky's friends and fellow musicians.
Pat has asked if any musicians would like to play at the Crem she'd be delighted and also back at the club at 1300.
Let's make this sad occasion the joyous one Jacky would have wished.
Lance.
* Not 10:30 as originally announced.
** The 28a is once an hour from Eldon Square Bus Station at 20 minutes past the hour and from Gateshead Metro at 32 minutes past.

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.

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to all of them other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.
