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)

Paul Skerritt: New York! New York!

Today marked the launch of this year’s summer season of direct flights from Newcastle to New York. BBC Newcastle broadcast live from Newcastle International Airport just minutes before the first flight took off for the Big Apple. Vocalist Paul Skerritt could be heard entertaining those lucky passengers prior to boarding singing New York, New York.
The question is: Did Skerritt run across the tarmac and take his seat on board the Boeing 757-200?

I think the answer is 'no' unless he was parachuted down into South Shields. He's performing there tonight at Mambo's on Winchester St. - 7pm-9pm
