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.

The B's Are Back!

It must be Christmas - the B's are back! Three of them - Barber, Bilk and Ball. of course. This is becoming an annual event in December and, despite their collective longevity - don't ask - they never fail to put on a good show. My personal favourite is Chris Barber, particularly in his bigger band format which invariably includes some early Ellington charts in its' repertoire. But whatever band is your favourite, make sure you have a sturdy pair of shoes on because you will be tapping your feet so much you could wear out the soles!
The Three B's - Kenny Ball and his Jazzmen, The Big Chris Barber Band and Acker Bilk and his Paramount Jazz Band are at The Sage, Gateshead on Tuesday December 11. 7:30pm. Tickets £24:50. Tel.0191 4434640. Plus if you order a meal when you book your ticket you get 10% of the set menu. You think that's a good idea? Well So Do I!
Lance.
