Bebop Spoken There

Steve Race: "The personnel is different, notably in the inclusion of Ben Webster, always, to my mind, a rather half-hearted tenor player" - - New Musical Express, 16-9-1949.

Not of direct interest to this blog but, as we do have one or two "Folkies" aboard, thought I'd mention it.
Please note: Eliza Carthy Band plus support, due to take place at The Sage Gateshead in Hall Two on Saturday 13th October 2012 at 8pm has been CANCELLED.

As one of those folkies who was going to this gig, I say 'O'h dear' but thanks for the info Lance. Wonder what the reason is?

The following info is on-line -
Eliza has been urged by throat specialists to take time off in order to ensure a full recovery in the longer term and, therefore, her forthcoming autumn tour and the launch of her 'best of' album 'Wayward Daughter' have been postponed to ensure that her voice can make a full recovery. We wish Eliza a speedy recovery and look forward to re-scheduling the concert in 2013.
