Bebop Spoken There

Jack Teagarden: "I never did like anything Ellington ever did. He never had a band all in tune, always had a bad tone quality and bad blend" - Metronome, April 1947.

Important Announcement - Tommasso Starace Quartet - Change of Venue.

Please note the concert by the Tommaso Starace Quartet initially scheduled for the Corner House on Wednesday May 25 will now take place at The Chillingham, 89-91 Chillingham Road, Heaton NE6 5XL
The venue, usually referred to as simply "The Chilli" is well known to fans of Dave Weisser's Take It To The Bridge Jazz Workshops and Jazz North East is grateful to Dave for allowing them to use the room at such short notice.
It would be appreciated if the word could be spread around to avoid anyone going to the wrong pub!
As a matter of peripheral interest, "The Chilli" does a cracking pint of Black Sheep Bitter.
More importantly, Tommaso Starace is a superb modern alto saxist who shouldn't be missed!
Lance.
