Bebop Spoken There

George Shearing: "Speaking about Johann Sebastian Bach I think he'd be a real jazzer if he were alive today. I mean any man who has two wives, twenty kids, gets kicked out of the church for being too harmonically radical and drinks beer can't be all wrong can he?" - (Crescendo March 1984.)

Max Roach Poster info wanted.

Another poster from the archives of the late Chris Yates - this time it's the Max Roach Quartet.
However, I have neither date nor venue and it isn't a gig I remember so I'm hoping that someone out there can supply more details.

Chris Yates' book 'Blue Horizons' gives the year as 1989 but nothing more.

According to the Newcastle University Courier (link below), the concert took place at Newcastle Playhouse on October 5, 1989, at 7:30pm. Max started the show with "The Drum Also Waltzes" and closed it with his customary solo "Mr Hi-Hat" encore. Other tunes on the set list included "Round Midnight," "It's Time," "My Little Suede Shoes," and "Everything I Have Is Yours" (with a long a cappella solo by Odean Pope).
