Bebop Spoken There

Gretchen Parlato: "There's always an essence of the original [tune] that should be protected. I try to find that first - it's the thing that draws me to the material" - (DownBeat, March 2021)

Archive quotes.

Wylam Songbook Course Fully Booked

Earlier this year Ron Guariento informed me of his proposed  Course on the Great American Songbook (The Gasbook as we affectionately call it) and appealed for interested parties to get in touch.
Well I'm pleased to say that many parties were interested and  the course, which starts on Oct.16 for 5 weeks, is now fully subscribed.
However, if you've procrastinated and missed out, Ron is hoping to run another one next year looking at songwriters and lyricists other than the "Big Five".
Watch this space.
As an afterthought, we've got this course at Wylam, Jazz sessions at Blaydon and Hexham and Sunniside so maybe those 'hicks out in the sticks ain't hicks at all!'
Lance (of Hebburn).
