Bebop Spoken There

Charles Lloyd: "I'm raring to go out to play, because I know I'll find something to explain the inexplicable." (DownBeat August 2022)

The Things They Say!

Make a Rendezvous at Durham Cathedral on Saturday night

The Friends of Durham Cathedral have asked me to promote to regular attendees of the Lit & Phil Lunchtime Jazz Concerts the following concert at the Cathedral next Saturday evening, which I am of course more than pleased to do. Details (and Paul Bream’s Jazz Alert write-up) below - and for all of us, whether North East residents or just citizens of the world, a very worthy cause. 
For those with long(er) memories, it is a welcome return - after Stan Tracey's Ellington Sacred Concerts in the nineties - of jazz and gospel to the Cathedral. It sounds like it will be a truly memorable evening. Please come and make it also a successful one for the Cathedral Friends.

MAUREEN HALL’S RENDEZVOUS JAZZ
Maureen Hall (vocals); Gavin Lee (reeds); Don Fairley (trombone); Malcolm Armstrong (keyboards); John Robinson (bass); George Davidson (drums)
Saturday 19th August | 7.30pm
Durham Cathedral| Palace Green | Durham
Tickets £12.00 from the Gala Theatre (tel. 03000266600), from the Friends of Durham Cathedral office (0191 3843505), at www.galadurham.co.uk, or on the door.
The band line-up is at the top end, with fine reedsman Gavin Lee (not, I think, a regular member, but with Durham connections) joining for the occasion. 

The concert is a fund raising event for the Friends of Durham Cathedral, who assist with the upkeep of the building and its facilities - so let’s hope that a claim in the Northern Echo that the band will be “raising the rafters” is metaphorical rather than literal!
