Bebop Spoken There

Alan Barnes: "Normally you can cobble a set together with five guys on the back of an envelope over the first pint and it's just fine. Livestreaming isn't like that." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

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.
Lance.
SCENES IN THE CITY: The Music of Charles Mingus.
Gateshead Old Town Hall. 8:00pm. £10/£8.
(A Jazz North East promotion in conjunction with Gateshead Council).
