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)

The Days Ahead.

Just a few reminders of what's happening in the region this weekend.
Tonight BUDVIVAR are at the Jazz Café, Pink Lane, Newcastle - circa 9:30pm. The same venue has the now indispensable SUNDAY AFTERNOON JAM SESSION which kicks off around about - think of a number - and continues until - think of a higher number.
In the evening (Sunday) - 8:00pm to be precise (ish) - EXTREME MEASURES rock the Bridge Hotel. This is their latest line-up with Pete Tantum on trumpet replacing tenor saxist Gary Turner - a big move and I look forward to passing judgement...
Also on Sunday evening the GENE JARRED BIG BAND play Redcar Jazz Club which is another exciting prospect - as Fat's sang - I Wish I Were Twins!
Monday afternoon has the JAZZ IN THE AFTERNOON mob at Cullercoat's Crescent Club whilst Monday evening sees JO HARROP back at the Cherry Tree Restaurant, Jesmond. Don't miss this one - Jo is something else - the PAUL EDIS TRIO provide the musical support.
Over at Heaton's Corner House Hotel the Monday night residents, the VIEUX CARRE JAZZMEN, Turkey Trot their way up to Christmas.
Oh yes - and on Monday BRENDA SOKELL - winner of the Singing Pensioner Competition on the Alan Titchmarsh Show on ITV1 (5:00pm) returns to the show for the release of her single - White Christmas - recorded with the CHELSEA PENSIONERS.
Let's back-up Brenda and buy/download the disc and get her into the charts for a Christmas Number One!
Lance.
