Bebop Spoken There

Lou Donaldson: "(On Art Blakey) Everything changed. Especially when the women came in, sat down in the front row, and raised their skirts above their knees. Then the drums got louder, the tempos got faster, and every tune was a drum solo" - (JazzTimes, November 2019.)

An Ilkley Moor Pork Pie Hat

Jazz in Yorkshire has gone to be replaced by a number of related sites such as NorVol Jazz - described as "The Best Place For Promoting Yourself in the North (sic).". Northern Jazz Live -  "Norvol Jazz's new blog." and Jazz North who are "Building a new jazz delivery model based on collective partnerships".
So, you pays your money and you takes your choice - things are simpler north of the Tees!
Our favourite is NorVol Jazz which networks and acknowledges Bebop Spoken Here posts - Thank you Steve Crocker.
Lance.
PS: And yes, there is also Jazz in York which John Marley drew my attention to last year.
