Bebop Spoken There

Anat Cohen: "With the tenor, it's so iconic with jazz. With the clarinet, I can improvise, but it doesn't have to be called jazz." - (DownBeat July 2019)

Classic Swing @ Ashington Jazz Club.


Bob Wade (trumpet/flugel/clarinet); Jim McBriarty (sax/clarinet); Malcolm Armstrong (piano); Alan Rudd (bass); Ian Hetherington (drums); Olive Rudd (vocal).

(Proxy review by Lance)
John Taylor, the Norman Granz of Ashington, tells me that Bob Wade's Classic Swing played some classic swing on their first visit to The Elephant - HQ of AJC.
He sent me the set list to prove it and backed it up with a Facebook video. Ian Hetherington was a late dep on drums and, I'm told, brought the house down.
Classic Swing can also be heard Monday lunchtimes at the Marquis of Granby, Sunniside.
