Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

Alto player wanted

Dave Weisser's Wednesday night jam sessions at The Chilli seem to have been running longer than those of Norman Granz's Jazz At The Philharmonic even if, these days, Dave prefers to call them Jazz Workshops.
Like most sessions of this nature personnel fluctuates and currently Dave is looking for an alto player to take over from Doug Fielder who finds the drive from Cumbria time-taking and expensive.
Any one interested just turn up at The Chillingham pub on Chillingham Rd., Heaton any Wednesday.
Dave is particularly keen to contact John Steele - can anyone help?
One for the diary - Blue Jazz, Karen Rann (sop), Jeff Smith (alt/ten), Steve Glendinning (gtr), Dave Parker (bs), Michael Howard (dms), are special guests on April 18.
Lance.
