First Newcastle JATP Concert.

Syd Watson has asked me about the first JATP concert to be held in Newcastle. Well Syd, I still have the program so here goes. May 7 1958 - City Hall Newcastle. Dill Jones Trio w. Dave Shepherd (clt). Lady Be Good. ----- Coleman Hawkins (ten), Sonny Stitt (alt/ten), Roy Eldridge (tpt), Lou Levy (pno), Herb Ellis (gtr), Max Bennett (bs), Gus Johnson (dms). Indian Summer, Talk of the Town. ----- Dizzy Gillespie (tpt), Stan Getz (ten), Lou Levy (pno), Ray Brown (bs), Gus Johnson (dms). Lover Come Back To Me, Laura. ----- Oscar Peterson (pno), Ray Brown (bs), Herb Ellis (gtr). C Jam Blues, Golden Striker. ----- Ella Fitzgerald (vcl) acc. Lou Levy, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown, Gus Johnson. Too Close For Comfort, Midnight Sun, Lady is a Tramp, Just One of Those Things, St Louis Blues, Caravan. ----- There were also some instrumentals by the Eldridge, Gillespie, Peterson groups that my youthful ears didn't recognise. My abiding memory was that Stan Getz played a lot of squeaks and that Sonny Stitt was more impressive than either Getz or Hawkins. Hope that brings it all back for you Syd. Lance.
