Bebop Spoken There

Ed Palermo: "[Frank] Zappa's humor was very rarely self-deprecating, and mine is almost always self-deprecating. The beauty of it is that no one gets hurt." - (DownBeat February, 2021)

In [Group] Theory one not to miss

Tonight (Thursday) at Newcastle’s Jazz Café four musicians from Durham University will play two sets of original compositions. The quartet played the venue last night as members of the Durham University Big Band, and, quite possibly, slept there overnight! Pianist Matthew Jacobs has been working with NYJO and alto saxophonist Dan Garel has recently returned from studying at McGill University, Montreal. The duo will be joined by DUBB mates Dylan Churches, bass, and drummer Tristan Bacon. Last night’s tremendous big band session whets the appetite. What, exactly, could we expect to hear? First class musicianship, that’s for sure. Anyone with a passing interest in the ‘original composition’ end of the jazz spectrum will be at the Jazz Café tonight. Eight o’clock start.       
Russell.
