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!

Steve Andrews (sax/clt) and Graham Hardy (tpt/flgl) with The Blaydon Jazz Trio featuring Jeremy McMurray pno, Andy Champion bass and Adam Sinclair drums. Steve's great playing embodies the 30s/40s swing style tenor sax of Hawkins, Young, Webster, Berry - a master player of that idiom and a wonderful, distinctive clarinettist too. For this 'one off' collaboration he joins the ubiquitous Graham Hardy (tpt/flgl), a great local player, totally at home in all styles of jazz from Satchmo to Hubbard.

Thurs Nov 1st - 8.30 start - Adm. £5.00
