Bebop Spoken There

Rickie Lee Jones: "There's lots of music and not so much celebrity. I guess I'll stay here [New Orleans] for a while if it doesn't get washed away in the flood." - (The Observer 18.04.21)

Sunday at the Jazz Café.

Hello all, after yet more discussions a plan is coming together.
Firstly Bands will start at 2pm

Do NOT bring instruments other than your horns as all will be provided.
The audio of the day will be recorded. (distribution possible in time)
The family has requested NO photographs. Our memories can be our photos. 
There will be a collection to go towards assisting his sister Janet with the cost of the wake. (Suggested donation 5) you will get a lot of music for that.
I will have my piano and amp upstairs (in the chill out space) with microphone so anyone can use quietly and any of the comedy or poetry lot can do there thing.
We will get things going downstairs, and then move out of the way and let whoever take turns I reckon we can calmly organise that between ourselves, on the day. Just let me or, Mark Robertson know and people can pick and choose their line up.
The day will conclude with firstly Gypsy Dave Smith doing some of his wonderful solo Blues and the Grand finale will be The Safe Sextet.
It will be a great day with one major factor missing but please come along and celebrate the life of Newcastle finest Jazz Man, and our dear dear friend Keith Crombie 
Thanks see you Sunday 6th @ 2pm 

Peter Gilligan
