Bebop Spoken There

Kenny Davern: "Now I like traditional jazz, but I don't like Dixieland per se, and the reason is that there's not enough ensemble playing or interplay." - (Melody Maker September 22, 1979)

Brass Festival Reminders.

Just a reminder of some of the jazzier moments ahead in this year's Brass: Durham International Festival.
Tuesday July 15: JON FADDIS w. the ANDY CHAMPION QUINTET - Gala Theatre. 7.30pm. £12. Unbelievable opportunity to hear incredible trumpet player. To the best of my knowledge this is his first ever appearance in the north east and, outside of a reincarnated Dizzy Gillespie Band, I can't think of better company for him to be in than the Andy Champion Quintet. Unmissable.
----- 
Friday July 18: The BBC BIG BAND - Gala Theatre. 7.30pm. £25/£23 (conc.) £20 (Gala Friends).
Over the years the BBCBB has become as legendary as its predecessors, The NDO, The Radio Big Band and the BBC Show Band. Duke Ellington could well have written It Don't Mean a Thing if is Ain't Got That Swing   with the BEEB's flagship in mind.
----- 
Friday July 18: KING BEE - The Witham, 3 Horse Market, Barnard Castle. 8pm. £10/£8 (conc.).
Top funk soul band with 3 piece horn section.
There is, of course, much, much, more music across the genres, these are just my personal faves.
Full details at www.brassfestival.co.uk.
