Bebop Spoken There

Binker Golding: "The purest jazz was often the most danceable. Somewhere along the way, we exchanged danceability for complexity, and I see a lot of what I do as a way of giving that back to people." - (Jazziz, Winter 2020).

We Have Our Agents Everywhere - look out for them at a gig near you...

Thursday April 5 is one for the record books - Four separate reviews from four different gigs at four different venues by four different people!
David Gosling reported on Greg Spero at Lanercost - making Sunday at The Bridge a must (as well as Zefferelli's and Carlisle Jazz Club on tonight and next Thursday respectively). Russell reviewed the Zoe Gilby Quartet at Blaydon, Jerry waxed lyrical about the Paul Edis Sextet at Hexham whilst Lance threw in his two-pennyworth on the Strictly Smokin' Big Band at Hoochie Coochie.
Our operatives are everywhere so, next time you go to a gig, be careful what you say - the guy (or the gal) in the corner taking copious notes may be a BSH Agent - Licenced To Spill (the beans)...
'M'
