Bebop Spoken There

Anat Cohen: "With the tenor, it's so iconic with jazz. With the clarinet, I can improvise, but it doesn't have to be called jazz." - (DownBeat July 2019)

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!'
