Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Blaydon News.

Thurs 4th Oct - 8.30 start - adm. £5.00
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

Paul Edis Sextet 
Paul's acclaimed NE sextet playing superb arrangements of standards plus a few originals. The sextet is made up of Paul's fine trio plus trumpet/trombone/saxophone front line - Graham Hardy, Chris Hibbard & Graeme Wilson. All great young players.
Thurs Dec 6th - CHRISTMAS CONCERT - 8.15 start - adm. £6.00 (includes buffet - as is our custom, please bring some small food contribution) 
Frank Brooker + James Birkett Quartet
Frank tnr sax/clt, James gtr, Jeremy McMurray pno, Mick Shoulder bass and Adam Sinclair drums.
Once again we've booked Frank with James' Quartet after a lovely concert last year.
The November concert by the Ray Chester Big Band has been cancelled due to Ray's current state of health.
