Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

Yesterday The Downbeat - Today The Holystone


Brian Bennett sent me this bizarre poster re the Downbeat Jazz Club from the 1950s or maybe early '60s. Brian suggests that River City 'Gentlemen', Herbie Hudson or Ray Shenton may be able to pinpoint the precise date.
Brian also goes on to say that the Vieux Carré Jazzmen will be performing their own 'Epoch Creating Achievements without Counterpart or Parallel' today at The Holystone pub. (See above listings for details.)
