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)

Durham beckons on Friday

There's a lot going on this Friday - King Bee at The Cluny, Alan Glen Trio at the Jazz Café and the Customs House Big Band at the theatre of the same name in South Shields - all mouthwatering prospects! However, I'm heading for the Gala Theatre in Durham where vocalist Val Wiseman pays tribute to Billie Holiday with her show Lady Sings The Blues.
Apart from her distinctive vocals, the instrumentalists are absolute top drawer swingers i.e.: Digby Fairweather (tpt); Julian Marc Stringle (reeds); Roy Williams (tmb); Brian Dee (pno); Len Skeat (bs); Eric Ford (dms).
This is going to be well worth the trip!
Tickets are £13/£12 and the show starts at 7.30pm.
Lance.
