"Der Bingle" at Trinity - Saturday Jan 14.

Happy New Year to everybody, and how better to start the new jazz year at Trinity than with Spats Langham and the crew in a concert dedicated to "The Jazzy Side of Bing"? 
Though mainly a sentimental crooner in his later years, the younger Bing was very much a part of the Jazz Age, and in the 1920s and 30s always liked to surround himself with the top jazz musicians of the day. Spats Langham is one of the best when it comes to recreating this music (and of course a virtuoso guitarist and banjoist too) and on this occasion will be accompanied by the legendary Midlands reed-player Norman Field on clarinet and saxes, assisted by Mike Durham on trumpet, Brian Chester on piano, and John Carstairs Hallam on bass. 
As well as Bing, we can expect a glimpse or two of Spats' other favourite crooners, such as Al Bowlly and Russ Colombo. The music starts at 8.00pm, and we hope very much to see you there - advance bookings on (0191) 285 6130.

 Best wishes,
