Bebop Spoken There

Belá Fleck: "...he [Chick Corea] brought out the best in musicians. Not only would you get to play with him, but you'd get to play with the best version of yourself." - (DownBeat April 2021).

Take the Blue Train on Thursday













Gateshead Railway Club, which recently started hosting blues nights, is holding a 4 week Thursday night - see how it goes - series of jazz gigs. Organised by David Wares who also hosts a jazz program on Spark FM 107 which, I'm led to believe, recently had Debra Milne/Steve Glendinning playing live on the show and that the duo is scheduled for a follow-up Railway Club appearance.
First session is this Thursday - October 26 - and may feature David's own band, Thelonious Punk. The following week, David Keighley's Space Gong is billed to appear and, as David Wares has yet to book a band for November 9, by a process of elimination, it may well be Debbie and Steve for November 2. Bands interested in playing should contact David via Spark FM.
Lance.
