Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

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)

Durham University Big Band Gig Preview

Durham University Big Band return home from their national competition win with a one-off performance in University College's Fellows Garden. This is a perfect picnic opportunity and the band are combining their winning repertoire with a special set from the Invitations, a regular fixture on Durham's bar scene. It's Pimm's season so we have a bar on site so there's no need to bring your own. As usual, the band's repertoire covers everything from jazz standards to more modern tunes and specially commissioned arrangements. Don't miss this chance to see Durham's most decorated jazz ensemble live before they head to London for a sold-out gig at Pizza Express Jazz Club and open the Manchester Jazz Festival this summer!
The gig is on  Friday 13th June in Fellows Garden, University College, Durham and starts at 7PM. Tickets are on the door, £6 for adults, £5 for concessions and  £4 for DUMS members or you can purchase a family ticket for £20. The event will be cancelled should the weather be unfavourable (how could it be on Friday the Thirteenth?) 
On the day, check links below - we should have a call made by 5pm.
