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).

Equinox Full House

Our man in Darlington reports a large turn-out for Abbie Finn’s homecoming with Leeds College of Music band Equinox. The former Durham County Youth Big Band drummer, no stranger to Darlington Jazz Club, played a set of standards in the company of student friends Jake Rider (alto), Sam Lowther (guitar) and bassist Manraj Lall.
Tony Eales reckons guitarist Sam Lowther caught the eye, or should that be ear? This gig at the Quakerhouse was a first for the quartet. By all accounts it won’t be their last. Catch Equinox next time they’re on the road.
