Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

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)

Kevin Belton has recently expanded the line up to include two lovely young ladies. So it’s “What to call the band”. Not Tees Valley Jazzmen any more!!
Donna did some smashing solo work on Misty and other numbers. Of special note was Gavin Lees Soprano In the Picau High Society solo. Via Rosa, and Too Busy were featured in the first set and later the pad was:
China Boy, Dinah, Spain, Just a Closer Walk With Thee, That Izssy Bonn number with a German name (Ed - Bei Mir Bist Der Schoen?), Sheik of Araby, St Philips Breakdown, Old Rugged Cross, High Society and Goin' Home
It’s along way to travel but it’s a real good venue. Boston Spa have a fantastic weekly programme lined up including on  December 8 a tribute to the late Ragtime Tommy Burton
