As one door closes…

(Report by Russell/Tony).
Darlington Jazz Club switched off the lights one more time, locked the door and walked off into the night. The Forum Music Centre on Borough Road is history. The jazz nights came to an end – the end of an era – last night with a memorable gig by the Darlington Big Band.
However, Bebop Spoken Here’s Deep South correspondent Tony Eales sends news of an exciting future. Darlington Jazz Club will be reborn on Sunday April 12 at a new town centre venue. The Quakerhouse pub in Mechanics Yard, just off Skinnergate, will be one of a select number of venues to stage club events. Sunday April 12 features the excellent post-bop combo the Jazz Tones.
Less than two weeks later the fantastic Darlington Jazz Festival returns (April 23-26) at the Quakerhouse and other jazz-friendly town centre places. A full festival preview will appear on these pages in due course. As one door closes…
