Bebop Spoken There

Melanie Charles: "If I don't have a gig I'll try to get in bed by midnight. But if I do, I might end up having a jam session after. That happened a few weeks ago, and I didn't get to bed until 7 a.m.." - (The New York Times Aug. 10, 2018)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MILES WATSON

Mike Durham Mailshot


At the Customs House on Friday 21st we have the West Jesmond Rhythm Kings playing their hot 1920s jazz, featuring a programme called "Mamas & Papas" - every tune has the words Mama, Papa or Baby in the title! This makes for an interesting selection, mixing the familiar with the relatively rare numbers from the classic jazz era. On this occasion, the WJRK (now in their 30th year) are reinforced by brilliant young local pianist Paul Edis. 8.00pm in the Daltons Room, Box Office 0191 454 1234 or book online at www.customshouse.co.uk (check out the pre-jazz meal deals in the Green Room restaurant - delicious!).
By way of contrast, Trinity Jazz presents the 12-piece New Century Ragtime Orchestra on Saturday 22nd, at the new earlier start time of 7.30pm. The NCRO, under the musical direction of Dave Kerr, will play their customary programme of jazz and hot dance music from the 1920s and early 1930s, all lovingly taken from the original recordings of the era and played with great authenticity. An added bonus is the witty commentary by MC Steve Andrews, who also plays great sax and clarinet. Guaranteed good fun and super music! Box Office 0191 285 6130, advance booking recommended as this excellent band frequently draws capacity audiences.
Mike.
