Bebop Spoken There

Gil Goldstein: "The first three days I was in Florida, I heard Jaco Pastorius play at a club in Fort Lauderdale, and then I heard Pat [Metheny] play in a class on jazz composition. My whole experience of the world changed in those three days." - (DownBeat, March 2020).

Claire’s Big Apple warm up gigs ahead of Sage gig

Tonight (Monday) and again tomorrow night if you happen to be in New York you could  get along to Dizzy’s Coca-Cola Club at Lincoln Center to lend your support to the UK’s Claire Martin. Our girl is in town for a couple of gigs before flying home to prepare for her forthcoming appearance with the Northern Sinfonia at Sage, Gateshead (May 26) in a concert devoted to Beatles’ classics - ‘Two of Us’: The Lennon and McCartney Songbook. Her Big Apple shows are with a non-too shabby ‘local’ trio - Nikolaj Hess (piano), Peter Washington (bass) and drummer Matt Wilson. Admission: $30 ($10 with valid student ID). Knock ‘em for six, Claire (or should that be a ‘home run’?).

Apart from the delectable Claire Martin, the concert at Sage Gateshead also features pianist/singer Joe Stilgoe and singer/actor Mark McGann.
