Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 2020)

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)

Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Co-op's Dividends (Musically speaking)

The Jazz Co-op, based at The Globe pub, Newcastle languishes in the shadow of the Metro Arena. However, as the refurbishment gains momentum the languishing and the shadows are receding and, as befits its location on Railway Street, it's full steam ahead with some ambitious programming.
This includes an appearance by the Clark Tracey Quintet on Saturday November 1 (plus afternoon drum workshop by CT) and a mouthwatering gig by American saxist Benn Clatworthy in the company of fellow American Cecilia Coleman on piano with Brits Simon Thorpe and Matt Home on bass and drums respectively. This latter gig is on Thursday November 20.
More details of these and other happenings can be found on the Co-op's website.
