Bebop Spoken There

Gil Goldstein: "The first three days I was in Florida, I heard Jaco Pastorius play at a club in Fort Lauderdale, and then I heard Pat [Metheny] play in a class on jazz composition. My whole experience of the world changed in those three days." - (DownBeat, March 2020).

Africarmen @ Dance City

Bawren Tavaziva’s Africarmen is on tour, next stop Newcastle. Artistic Director and Choreographer Tavaziva’s dance creation is of interest to Bebop Spoken Here due to the involvement of Jazz Warriors’ co-founder Fayyaz Virgi. This touring production should be of interest regardless, but the trombonist’s jazz credentials are the obvious attraction.
From the early days of the Jazz Warriors to Graham Collier to Carla Bley’s Very Big Band to Jason Moran’s Big Band to Amy Winehouse and many others, Fayyaz Virgi works across the disciplines. He has composed and arranged the music for Africarmen and this week the production calls at Newcastle’s Dance City for two nights. Set in an oil-rich military dictatorship somewhere in Africa, the story follows Carmen’s dreams   of escape and a better life.
To book your seat for Friday 12 or Saturday 13 February (or both) call Dance City on 0191 261 0505 or visit www.dancecity.com. Africarmen also visits Jersey, Doncaster, Inverness and Musselburgh. Visit www.tavazivadance.com.
