Bebop Spoken There

Art Hirahara: "Playing with people is the most important thing to me, and not playing with people is torture." - (DownBeat August, 2020)


The Things They Say!

The 30th Great North Run is upon us this Sunday (Sept 19). 52,000 runners are set to cover the 13.1 miles many of whom choose to do it in fancy dress.
With at least 15 bands playing en route (including the Chilli Road Band) it is not surprising that our Cartoonist in Residence, Bill Shaw, found inspiration for this whimsical look at Sunday's event.

SUPERB. Great artistic talent and wit. I hope Bills' work is being appreciated widely. Should have been featured in the BBC coverage!
