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).

Wherever Ye Gan You're Sure to Find a Roly














It's all happening for The Blaydon Aces (Roly Veitch (left), gtr/bjo/vcl, and James Birkett, gtr/bjo) - not only are they appearing tonight at The Cherry Tree (who knows but that they may have Stottie Cake on the menu), The Lit and Phil on June 13 and a revised version of their popular CD Gan Canny featuring original versions of Tyneside songs has been re-released but Roly Veitch will also be interviewed on Radio Newcastle today between 4pm and 5:30pm on the Jon Harle/Anne Leuchar's Drivetime programme - it's 45.20 in.
Okay so it's not jazz but the CD includes some original material and the accompaniment and solos by the two guitarists are worth listening to even if you were born within the sound of Bow Bells!

Tune in tonight - midnight Monday - to Radio Tyneside to catch a repeat of yesterday's broadcast of Gary Hogg's Geordie Hour. Listen to Roly having a bit crack about this and that and hear some of a live session at Ashington Jazz Club featuring Keith Stephen's Hot Club Trio with Caroline Irwin.
