Whitley Bay Jazz Party - November 1-3

Well it's almost here again, only a week to go. The Whitley Bay Jazz Party that was, for twenty years, known as the Whitley Bay Jazz Festival, returns next weekend. Welcome back! But, sadly, without its creator Mike Durham. Without Mike this incredible event that has brought jazz musicians and enthusiasts from across the globe wouldn't have existed. The fact that so many people have returned year after year is proof that he got it right.
This year, he isn't here to "Get it right" but, family, friends and fans are, and maybe, Mike is offering gentle guidance from above.... Patti Durham, Allan and the others involved have certainly done their bit and, looking at the program, tell me of a better jazz weekend!
Highlights are many but, to have,arguably, the worlds two greatest jazz vocalists in Shiremoor on the same weekend? Eat your heart out London, New York, Paris, Rome and anywhere else! Yes Daryl Sherman and Cécile McLorin Salvant are with us over the three days. Of course there are many many other great musicians  like Jeff and Anne Barnhart, Spats Langham and, OMG, just about every musician in Europe who knows the truth.
If you like jazz - this is the place! Hey Patti, are there any tickets left?
Lance.
PS: Don't miss the eve of party concert at the Customs House, South Shields. (Thursday October 31.)
