Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat June 2020).

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

Tonight at Gateshead Old Town Hall - Reincarnation of a Love Bird

Tonights concert at Gateshead Old Town Hall promises to be one of those unmissable ones. Indeed anything Mingus related has to be something special and Arnie Somogyi's SCENES IN THE CITY is no exception.
With a stellar line-up comprising Alan Barnes, Karen Sharp (saxes), Jeremy Price (tmb), Mark Edwards (pno), Arnie Somogyi (bs) and Clark Tracey (dms) you know the sparks are going to fly.
Mingus' music at times created melodic textures as rich and as full as Ellington's as well as futuristic strides into the unknown.
You've just got to be there in fact you'd better git it in your soul as well as on your agenda for this evening.
