Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

Tomorrow Night @ Live Theatre - A Funny Valentine

If you like the music of Chet Baker or were simply fascinated by his harrowing life the only game in Toon tomorrow night is at Live Theatre down on Broad Chare in the Newcastle Quayside area.
A Funny Valentine unfolds Chet's tragic tale with authentic trumpet sounds from Colin Steele:
The Story & Music of Chet Baker It’s 1961 and Chet Baker, voted best jazz trumpeter in the world, is in an Italian jail sharing his cell with a storyteller. 28 years later, on the night he died, Chet shared a hotel room in Amsterdam with the storyteller. Only the storyteller knows what really happened - and now he’s telling it. ‘One of the many appealing things about this show is the fact that you don’t have to be a jazz aficionado to enjoy it.’ The Stage.
Tickets are £12/£10 (concessions) from 0191 2321232 or from the theatre at www.live.org.uk.
It's an unmissable experience!
Lance.
