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)

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.

Preview: Swing Manouche - Cherry Tree Wednesday July 29.

Next Wednesday (July 29) sees the first appearance at the highly rated restaurant by Mick Shoulder's new band Swing Manouche which, translated, means Gypsy Jazz. Still roughly based in the Hot Club format that made Djangologie, arguably, the most popular small jazz group in the area this latest venture allows Mick to swap double bass for guitar and bring in Paul Edis on clarinet. Don't look surprised, apart from piano, Paul has also been known to play alto, flute and drums - he probably sings and plays the ukulele as well! 
Completing the line-up is Giles Strong on guitar and Neil Harland double bass.
This looks to be a must for those who like good food and good jazz.
Cherry Tree Restaurant, 9 Osborne Rd., Jesmond, Newcastle NE2 2AE. Tel. 0191 2399924.
