Bebop Spoken There

Anat Cohen: "With the tenor, it's so iconic with jazz. With the clarinet, I can improvise, but it doesn't have to be called jazz." - (DownBeat July 2019)

Horns a Plenty Today

As the reader will note from the above listings today is one of those spoilt for choice days! There's three gigs in Gateshead alone at venues but a ff riff apart! (Sage Gateshead, Gateshead Old Town Hall, Central Bar).
Travel one Metro stop to Central Station and you've got another (Jazz Café), one more to Monument (Hoochie Coochie) or three more to West Jesmond (British Legion).
My personal choice is for Sage Gateshead and the Kings of Swing but it could easily have been any of the others or even an afternoon trip down to Durham (Gala Theatre) or a Rendezvous at the Black Horse, Monkseaton. Or, if it's a balmy evening, a run up to Etal or Alnwick!
We've never had it so good, or is it too much of a good thing?
Lance.
