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)

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Sue Ferris @ Opus 4, Traveller's Rest, Darlington - May 12

(Report by Russell/photo from BSH archive)
County Durham correspondent Tony Eales has filed a brief report to inform BSH readers that Sue Ferris played a storming gig at last night’s Opus 4 Jazz Club gig at the Traveller’s Rest. The West Auckland Road pub’s upstairs room was well populated as Ferris blew some tremendous tenor (a first set played on a borrowed tenor from the well known reeds man Paul Edis). Ferris made a call to Noel Dennis who readily accepted a dep gig for the otherwise engaged Graham Hardy. Not too shabby a replacement! Paul Smith took the drum chair, Neil Harland, bass and Dr Edis assumed a familiar role – that of pianist, his day job! Second set, having made running repairs, Ferris played her trusty tenor. All in all, another highly successful Darlington jazz gig.
Today (Sunday) at six o’clock Darlington Jazz Club meets in the Quakerhouse with the house band – the Jazztones – playing a few tunes. Recommended.
