Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Memo From Mike

Just a reminder that clarinet and soprano sax ace Pete Allen is back by popular request to play at Gosforth Trinity this Saturday, backed by a five-piece local band. It's just a year now since Pete was here, and I'm sure all who were there will remember what a great night we had last time, with Pete in full-on Sidney Bechet mode on both instruments. So, for a musical feast - and maybe a welcome break from all the football! - do come and support us on Saturday. Box office 0191 285 6130, or pay on the door(£10) - 8pm start.
Mike Durham.
