Keith Morris CD/DVD Launch @ The Jazz Café – Nov 27

An early evening gathering at the Jazz Café was entertained by an opening half hour set by Tango Zapatito. Cello and accordion played as if at a literary salon; music secondary to the greeting, the embrace, the convivial catch-up conversation. They were there for a low-key CD/DVD launch. The late Keith Morris, musician, educator and promoter, was remembered at a concert earlier in the year at Gateshead Old Town Hall. The event was recorded and has now been made available as a CD or DVD to add to your collection. A cast list as long as a slide trombone gave their services at the Gateshead commemorative event including some notable jazz names (Lewis Watson, Neil Harland and Rob Walker to name but three). Archive material – both stills and moving image – filled the screen at the Jazz Café. The memory of Keith Morris will live on.
