Bebop Spoken There

Gretchen Parlato: "There's always an essence of the original [tune] that should be protected. I try to find that first - it's the thing that draws me to the material" - (DownBeat, March 2021)

Kevin Belton (pno/vcl); Phil Smith (bs); Danny Daniels (dms); Gavin (bjo); Don Fairley (tmb;) Gavin Lee (clt/sop); Donna Hewitt (clt,alto) Kate (tpt)
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
