Bebop Spoken There

Gil Goldstein: "The first three days I was in Florida, I heard Jaco Pastorius play at a club in Fort Lauderdale, and then I heard Pat [Metheny] play in a class on jazz composition. My whole experience of the world changed in those three days." - (DownBeat, March 2020).

Redemption found in Empty Shop - August 3

(Photo from archives)
Durham correspondent Tony Eales reports a standing room only attendance at the Empty Shop for the return visit of Tyneside based quartet Redemption. An evening of original numbers and modern jazz standards entertained a crowd of students (yes, some stay on during the summer months) and regular jazz gig-goers. John Hall and co played their tune dedicated to Bebop Spoken Here’s editor – the one titled Free Lance, thus making make this ‘in absentia’ performance a contender for Gig of the Year!
The Steam Machine Brewing Company has established a summer-long ‘tap takeover’ at the Empty Shop and the next opportunity for jazz fans to sample the Newton Aycliffe brewery’s ‘product’ is on Sunday week (August 13) when Matt MacKellar’s Trio invites the dynamic Julija Jacenaite to sing a bluesy tune or two. It’s a four o’clock start, and the gig is heartily recommended.

Freelance will be released the next but one album after enjoying a well earned rest from the set list over the past year. ;0)
