Bebop Spoken There

Rickie Lee Jones: "There's lots of music and not so much celebrity. I guess I'll stay here [New Orleans] for a while if it doesn't get washed away in the flood." - (The Observer 18.04.21)

A Dixieland Day in the Dales

Guitarist Ron Hampton of Tees Hot Club fame has asked me to mention a trad gig coming up in Leyburn, North Yorkshire.
The Frisco Bay Hot Stompers are crossing the Pennines to play the Bolton Arms Hotel in Leyburn, North Yorkshire which is interesting for a few reasons.
The personnel includes Tom Derbyshire on bass (pictured) who, many years ago, was part of the Jim Vincent Trio with the late Marshall Walker on drums. He also, I believe, played in a college band with the late Bill Shaw. I also did a gig with him many many years ago - too long ago to remember. The last time I saw Tom was either at Marshall's funeral or when he did a dep gig with the Maine Street Jazzmen at Rosie's in South Shields. 
So much for the reminiscences!
The band play in the Turk Murphy, Bob Scobey vein - the clue is in the title - and should appeal to those who like their Jazz played with mucho gusto.
Details:
Frisco Bay Hot Stompers - Bolton Arms Hotel, Market Place, Leyburn, North Yorkshire DL8 5BW.
Sunday Lunchtime October 29.
Lance.
Harry Long (cornet); Gerry Smith (reeds); John Crisp (trombone); Kathy Benson (piano//vocals); David Reid (banjo); Tom Derbyshire (bass); Dave Stanley (drums).
