The Jazzman by Kevah Emami.

Kevah Emami posted this portrait of Jazz Café Supremo Keith Crombie on Facebook.
I felt it worthy of reproduction here.
A product of the early years of Trad, Skiffle and Rock and Roll Keith has kept his modest, yet charismatic, venue going against all the odds. Jazz loving visitors from around the world make a beeline for The Caff when in town (Newcastle). It's a place that is becoming isolated because of its individuality - rather like the corner shop surrounded by supermarkets. We should support it whilst it's here. The music is honest and, on Friday nights, reminiscent of what you might have been listening to at Birdland in New York, The Flamingo in London or the Down Beat in Newcastle in the late '50s early '6os. Drop by, say hello, enjoy a drink and hear the truth.
The Jazz Café, Pink Lane, Newcastle. Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.
