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)

Preview: Anita Wardell @ The Globe, Newcastle - Tonight (May 14).

A very rare visit by this top jazz vocalist to Tyneside. 
Anita Wardell - vocals, Robin Aspland - piano, Paul Grainger - bass, Tristan Mailliot - drums.
If you're a singer and you ain't got no gig tonight you'll need a sick note to be excused! Inexcusably unmissable!
Anita Wardell's singing is exciting and breathtaking. She is noted for her mesmerizing and captivating vocal improvisations and vocalese lyrics to instrumental solos. Anita is a musician who uses the voice as her instrument, displaying precision and agility, mixed with heartfelt emotion.Singer Norma Winstone praised her “unexpected vulnerability, which makes her reading of the ballads both beautiful and touching. Her honesty shines in this well-chosen collection of songs.”
Bebop pioneer, Mark Murphy, proclaimed Anita, "a gift from Australia", adding “What hits me, is how expressive her ballad singing is. Then she has the courage to scat a ballad or two, not unlike a young lady disciple of the Ben Webster school.”
Anita received the prestigious BBC Jazz Award for Best of Jazz category in 2006. In 2013 she won the Best Vocalist category in the British Jazz Awards.
Anita is also running a jazz vocal course at the Globe during the weekend

Tickets £12 on the door or available online.
