Bebop Spoken There

Jack Teagarden: "I never did like anything Ellington ever did. He never had a band all in tune, always had a bad tone quality and bad blend" - Metronome, April 1947.

Folk @ The Globe: What Interested Jazz Fans Can Expect

(Preview by Ann Alex)
I know that many jazz people like all kinds of music, so here is a run-down of the Folk music events which are coming to the Globe.  The first of our series of folk gigs was last night, Jan 23 but I don’t think Blogmaster will let me do a full review so I didn’t take notes.  Suffice to say it was a smashing performance of Irish jigs and reels, Breton music and original compositions from Freya Rae (whistle, flute, clarinet) and Louis Bingham (guitar, mandolin).
And what’s to come?
Sat Feb. 20 8pm £5
The LIndie Quartet  (contemporary folk with fiddles, sax, piano)
Sat Mar. 12 8pm £5
Speldosa (spellbinding music with hammer dulcimer, harp, fiddle)
Thurs Apr. 28 7.30pm £10
Tom McConville & David Newey
 (virtuoso fiddler returns to his childhood home.  He lived in the Globe!)
And don’t forget the regular Folk and Acoustic Night, 1st Thursday of the month, 7.30pm Free, donations welcome.
Ann Alex.
