Bebop Spoken There

Gretchen Parlato: "There's always an essence of the original [tune] that should be protected. I try to find that first - it's the thing that draws me to the material" - (DownBeat, March 2021)

Discover Your Alter Ego at Blaydon Jazz Club

The spirit of the Jazz Messengers will descent on the Black Bull, Blaydon tomorrow night (May 21). Blaydon Jazz Club will welcome the return of bop heroes Alter Ego on Sunday evening and it could well be a full house. The best advice is to arrive early to secure a seat. The first set starts at eight o’clock, seats will be snapped up by about seven thirty, so, make the effort to get along in good time. It is a pay on the door gig – a mere fiver – and the Black Bull pub on Bridge Street offers a well-kept pint for the discerning imbiber. On street parking is available adjacent to and opposite the pub, and the nearby Blaydon bus station provides reliable quick links to Newcastle, Gateshead, and west to the Tyne valley. You say your kind of jazz is swing or Dixieland, perhaps the GASbook. Be a devil, let your Alter Ego take you to bop paradise…Sunday 21 May, Black Bull, Blaydon, eight o’clock sharp.   
Russell.
