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.

A66 Road Trip Part 1 - Frank Brooker's Happy Chappies @ Darlington Jazz Club November 3.


Frank Brooker (clt/ten/vcl); Greg Wadman (tpt/vcl); Jim Wright (bjo/, gtr/vcl;) Phil Kampen  (bs); Rod “Animal” McNamara (Dms).
Dixie Jazz with the emphasis on fun! Not just content to keep feet tapping with their own brand of swing music they feature some of the greatest jazz favourites. Labelled the “Harbingers of Hokem and Hilarity” they have just recorded their first CD “Keep on Smiling". Several numbers with an African sound added to an eclectic mix of styles from this pro band
      An appreciative audience of long time regulars to the club stayed for three 45 minute sets.
 I Won’t Dance, That's a Plenty, Singin' the Blues, Louisian-i-a, When I’m 64, Skokiaan, I’d Climb the Highest Mountain, Windows, My Buddy, Jumping at the Woodside   
On Treasure Island, The Martinique, Isle of Capri, Bad Penny Blues, Mandela, Corrina Corrinaa, I May be Wrong, Stomping at the Savoy, Bloodshot Eyes, Seven Come Eleven
     Treme song, Lily of the Valley, Creole Jazz, Route 66 (A66 was the bands road home!) Weatherbird Rag, Oriental Man, Rockin' Chair, St. Thomas, That’s my Home
This band lives up to what it says on the tin – they (and the audience) go home as Happy Chappies.
